About the project

• The Barmer refinery will be the first in the country to produce BS-VI standard fuels.

• The existing refineries in the country currently produce on BS-III fuels but they will be upgraded to produce BS-IV fuels.

• The power at the new refinery will be generated using petroleum coke, a by-product of oil refining process, instead of gas.

• The state government will have 26% stake in the project and the rest will be held by HPCL.

• The government has already made 4800 acres of land available for the project at Pachpadra.

• The project is expected to take around four years to reach completion.

Though the project has already received the required environmental clearance, HPCL would require some more government approvals, which may take few more months.
