Refinery Modernisation Project (RMP)
Mumbai Refinery has modernized the facilities with an objective to reduce source emission, improve the product quality to EURO III standard apart from enhancing the crude processing capability of Refinery to 12 MMTPA from the existing level of 9 MMTPA.
Space being the biggest bottleneck in Refinery as on date and hence the major challenge posed for this project was the creation of plot area for all the units by way of dismantling of existing tankages (21 nos.) and resiting operating unit to accommodate new unit.. This was a unique project in itself, fully integrated with operating refinery in all aspects – crude supply, fuel, water, steam distribution and to blending of all old/new process streams to run to existing tanks. This was truly building a new refinery within an operating refinery.
The completion and commissioning of the facilities of Refinery Modernisation Project also marks the achievement of Processing refining capability of 12 MMTPA crude apart from reducing the source emissions. It is a proud privilege for BPCL, Mumbai refinery to have commissioned these facilities in its 50th year of refining, raising the capacity to 12 MMT/A.
