Numaligarh Refinery Finalizes Insurance Coverage for MMTPA Integrated Refinery Expansion Project
NRL said the policy provides full coverage for both the refinery expansion as well as the transborder pipeline (length 1640 km) from Paradip, Odisha to Numaligarh, as well as a crude oil import terminal at Paradip, Odisha for receiving imported crude oil. The scope of the policy also includes the interests of various stakeholders such as contractors, subcontractors, manufacturers, suppliers, vendors, lenders, consultants and other professionals involved in the project.
The policy will cover the entire period of the project until April 2025, during which the project is expected to be completed and put into operation.
The Numaligarh Refinery Expansion Project is a prestigious and historic project in the NE region aimed at tripling refining capacity from 3 MMTPA to 9 MMTPA and is being continued under the NE Hydrocarbon Vision 2030 of the Indian government.
