Chennai Petroleum to shut diesel unit

May 14/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- India's Chennai Petroleum Corp said it would shut a diesel hydrotreater at its 210,000 barrel-per-day Manali refinery in Tamil Nadu for about 60 days from August, for a revamp to produce Euro-VI compliant diesel, said Reuters.

The company is also installing a gasoline desulfurizer to reduce sulfur content in the gasoline produced from fluidized catalytic cracker, the company said in an email.

"These facilities are targeted for completion by Sept. 19 and commissioning by end-Dec," the company said.

India will fully migrate to Euro-VI compliant fuels from April 2020.

The gasoline desulfurizer will have an annual capacity of 0.6 million tonnes, while the capacity of diesel hydrotreater will be raised to 2.4 million tons a year from 1.8 million tons a year.
