Industry Scenario

India has emerged as a refinery hub.

India's current refining capacity stands at 249 MMTPA, comprising of 23 refineries—18 under public sector, 3 under private sector and 2 in a joint venture. Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) is the largest domestic refiner with a capacity of 80.7 MMTPA. Top three companies – IOC, Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) and Reliance Industries (RIL) - contribute around 66.7% of India's total refining production from FY 2018 - 19.

At present about 16,788 km natural gas pipeline is operational and about 12,672 km gas pipelines are under development.

India has witnessed a steady increase in production as well as consumption of petroleum products over the years. The production of petroleum products stood at 243.5 MMT during 2016-17 to 262.3 MMT in 2018-19. 

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) supply is forging ahead on both coasts, with 8 new R-LNG terminals (4 on the west and 4 on the east coast) coming up. Together with the six existing terminals, overall capacity will reach 74 MMTPA.
