About Indian Refineries

The Indian Petroleum refining sector has come a long way since crude oil was discovered and the first refinery was set up at Digboi in 1901. Until 1947, it was the only refinery with a capacity of 0.50 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA). 

  • The present Mumbai Refinery of HPCL was the first modern refinery to be set up after independence by Esso in 1954, which was followed by setting up of refineries by other oil majors, like Burmah Shell and Caltex in Mumbai (BPCL) and Visakhapatnam (HPCL). Since then, refineries were established by the Government, Private Sector, Joint Venture.
