HPCL starts supply of ethanol-blended petrol in Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh region


The ethanol-blended petrol will be now available in Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh region as the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) has started supplying the fuel.

With this HPCL becomes the first oil firm to start a supply of ethanol-blended petrol in the region.

HPCL said in a statement, “The fuel to the Ladakh region is supplied from its Leh depot. ‘Conquering the fuel requirement at such high altitude / low temperature and duly backed by robust quality checks, HPCL has become the first oil marketing company in the country to launch ethanol-blended petrol in Ladakh region.”

“HPCL was the first OMC to start selling ethanol-blended petrol through its retail outlets located in the Jammu and Kashmir region,” said the statement.

“This step will help the country in achieving the set target of blending 20% ethanol with petrol by 2025,” said the statement.

The government has asked the oil marketing companies to blend 20% ethanol in petrol by 2025 to reduce the expenditure on importing oil.
