Figure 3: Monthly Refinery Production  


3.1         PSU Refineries’ production during June, 2016 was 11094.99 TMT which is 1.16% lower than the target for the month and 5.08% higher than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. Cumulative production during April-June, 2016 was 33802.56 TMT which is 0.98% lower than the target for the period and 10.51% higher than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall of refinery production of PSU refineries are as under:
      IOCL, Paradip: Throughput is lower as South oil jetty is under commissioning and Continuous Catalytic Reforming Unit under shut-down for maintenance.
      IOCL, Guwahati & Digboi: Lower crude availability.
      HPCL, Mumbai: Crude throughput lower due to delay in crude parcel receipt.
      CPCL, Manali: Crude throughput lower than target to contain VTGO (Hydrocracker was shut down for catalyst scooping activity in Reactor -1 for 7 days).
      CPCL, CBR: Crude throughput lower than target due to planned shutdown of CBR from 27.5.16 to 12.6.16.

3.2       Production in JV refineries during June, 2016 was 1410.60 TMT which is 8.90% higher than the target for the month and 5.84% lower than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year.Cumulative production during April-June, 2016 was 4426.05 TMT which is 13.15% higher than the target for the period and 13.73% higher than the production during corresponding period of last year.
3.3       Production in private refineries during June, 2016 was 7661.85 TMT which is 3.15% higher than the target for the month and 3.16% higher than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. Cumulative production during April-June, 2016 was 22044.58 TMT which is 1.60% higher than the target for the period and 1.13% higher than the production during corresponding period of last year.
3.4       Refinery-wise details of the capacity utilization and production of petroleum products during the month of June, 2016 and cumulatively for the period April-June, 2016 vis-à-vis April, -June, 2015 are given at Annexure-IV and V respectively.
