Saudi, Abu Dhabi NOCs’ India refinery delayed
A top official from Ratnagiri Refinery & Petrochemicals, the consortium undertaking the project, told Reuters on Tuesday that its commissioning would be delayed until 2025.
The USD 50-billion mega-refining complex, located in the western state of Maharashtra, is slated to process 1.2 million bpd when it comes online. The project will include a petrochemicals component.
The consortium official cited new availability of “detailed information on the configuration, availability of the people to build and so on” in explaining the new schedule.
