Mumbai [India], December 21 (ANI): Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) said on Tuesday it will invest Rs. 9,028 crore on building a new crude oil pipeline from Mundra in Gujarat to Panipat in Haryana.
The Board of Indian Oil at its meeting held on December 20, 2021, has accorded approval for the investment proposal of a new crude oil pipeline system with a nameplate capacity of 17.5 million tonnes per annum (MMTPA) from Mundra to Panipat along with augmentation of a crude oil tank farm at Mundra, at an estimated cost of Rs.9,028 crore, IOCL said in a regulatory filing to the stock exchanges.
