Essar Oil Completes Optimisation Project; Capacity Increased To 20MMTPA
Essar Oil, India’s second largest private refiner, today announced that it has completed its Optimisation Project, which has taken the capacity of its Vadinar Refinery in Gujarat to 20 MMTPA, or 405,000 barrels per day. The Optimisation Project has been completed four months ahead of schedule.

Essar Oil had completed the Refinery Expansion Project to raise its nameplate capacity to 18MMTPA from 10.5 MMTPA on March 29th 2012 with an investment of Rs 9100 crore. For Optimisation Project, Essar Oil has invested an additional Rs 1,700 crore, taking the total investment at Vadinar Refinery to approx. Rs 24,000 crore. The company now accounts for about 10 per cent of India’s total refining capacity.

Essar Oil has set up the refinery at a low capital cost of $12,746 per barrel, which is about half the global average.

Under the Optimization Project, Visbreaker Unit has been converted in to Crude Distillate Unit to process ultra heavy / tough crude on standalone basis, which will drive significant improvement in economics. Secondary units required to support additional throughput along with other supporting infrastructure (pipelines, tankages, blending facility etc) are also completed as a part of Optimization Project.

Vadinar Refinery now has the capability to process much heavier crude diet. The share of ultra heavy crude will go up to 60%, and as a result, the overall share of heavy and ultra heavy crude will go upto 80% of the refinery's total crude basket. The company has already entered into long-term crude sourcing contract with global suppliers, including several national oil companies from Latin America.

In terms of product yield, the Vadinar Refinery now has the flexibility to produce higher value, high-quality products, including gasoline (petrol) and gas oil (diesel) conforming to Euro IV and Euro V norms, that have growing acceptance in both domestic and international markets. Close to 80% of its production will now be of valuable light and middle distillates; and more than 50% of the production of gas oil (diesel) and gasoline (petrol) will meet Euro IV and Euro V specifications. EOL is targeting newer markets such as Australia, New Zealand and north-west Europe, in addition to countries in the Indian subcontinent for exporting high-quality fuels. However Essar Oil will continue to market a majority of its products in the domestic market.

The Vadinar refinery benefits from a fully integrated infrastructure including India’s only captive coal fired power plant (nearing completion) to provide power and process steam, a port, pipelines and tankage with multi modal product dispatch facilities through rail, road, and sea, giving it a unique cost advantage.
