IOCL (Indian Oil Corporation Ltd) has chosen Axens to supply the technology for its Coker Gas Oil (CGO) Hydrotreating Unit at its Haldia Refinery.

With a design capacity of 1.4 million tons-per-annum (MTPA), the new unit will hydro-process light coker gas oil, heavy coker gas oil and coker naphtha. In addition, the unit will be able to process straight run gas oil and straight run vacuum gas oil. In view of the complexity of the feed, the design of this unit will be the first of its kind at IOCL.

IOCL's Haldia refinery currently has a 7.5 MTPA crude oil capacity. After the expansion, the unit will be producing Euro-III and Euro-IV grade gasoline and diesel.
