The Ministry of Power, Government of India issued PAT 2nd Cycle notification in which  Refinery sector has been included as a new sector. Total 18 refineries feature in this list with their baseline and target energy performance data.

This section contains best practices adopted by Refinery industry sector, the case studies and presentations from KEP workshops and National Energy Conservation Awards, NECA, are listed here.

Resource Name: Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Gujarat Refinery

Abstract: Best practices adopted to improve energy efficiency of the plant viz. Installation of additional row of tubes in convection section of CRU NHT furnaces (21F1/21F2) for increased heat recovery and reduction in stack temperature, reduction of CGP-2 Deaerator operating pressure from 1.4 to 0.8 kg/cm2-g, stoppage of motor driven air blower in SRU and operating single BPT HP-LP based air blower for energy savings, rectification of CCRU debutanizer reboiler desuperheater for savings MPS loss, and stoppage of reformate splitter in MSQU resulting in 5.5 Gcal/hr steam savings.
