Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL), a subsidiary of ONGC, has become the largest PSU refinery (single location) in India for 2022-23.

This was also the highest-ever throughput processed by any single-location PSU refinery in India’s petroleum refining history. MRPL processes 10% of the total crude oil refined by PSU petroleum refineries in India.

The company was established as a joint venture in 1988 with a 3.69 MMTPA capacity. MRPL expanded its operations in two phases to raise its capacity to 15 MMTPA. The refinery configuration has a Nelson Complexity Index (NCI) of 11.3, one of the highest for PSU refineries. Its Petchem Intensity is 9.5%, and the company aims to reach 15% in the medium term.

The company can process more than 250 different types of crude from around the globe.

It is capable of producing almost a full range of petroleum products, like Naphtha, LPG, Motor Spirit, High-Speed Diesel, Kerosene, Aviation Turbine Fuel, Sulphur, Xylene, Bitumen, along with Pet Coke and Polypropylene.

MRPL took significant steps in recent times to build its petrochemical profile. Its 440 KTA Novolen gas-phase polypropylene plant can produce a complete range of homopolymer grades. MRPL has ambitious plans for the retail business. It has initiated steps to expand its coveted RO brand HiQ in 1,000 locations in south India.
