Oil Investments to Increase

Indian Oil Corp is planning to invest Rs 1.43 trillion (US$22 billion) in next five years as the country’s top refiner seeks to raise its annual capacity to about 3.2 million barrels per day by 2030.

Refiners in India, the world’s third-biggest oil consumer and importer, have sketched out plans to raise their capacity by 77% to about 8.8 million bpd by 2030 to meet the country’s rising fuel demand.
