IOC to get Cairn crude

IndianOil will start processing crude oil produced from Cairn India Ltd’s Rajasthan block at its Panipat refinery in Haryana early next month, a senior official at the state-owned refiner said. “Cairn is scheduled to start injecting the crude into our pipeline today or in couple of days, and it should reach the Panipat refinery in 10 days. So, we are hoping to start processing the crude early next month“, IndianOil director refineries B N Bankapur said. He said Cairn will pump crude from its own pipeline to IndianOil’s 1,174-km Mundra- Panipat pipeline at the latter’s terminal in Radhanpur, Gujarat, to transport it to the Panipat refinery. Cairn recently commissioned its 590-km pipeline from its Rajasthan Block in Thar desert to Salaya in coastal Gujarat, and is already delivering crude to private refineries from the pipeline.
