Chennai Petroleum, Indian Oil form JV to build refinery in TN

Chennai Petroleum Corp (CPCL) has formed a joint venture with Indian Oil Corp and others to build a 9 MMTPA refinery at a cost of Rs 31,580 crore in Tamil Nadu. CPCL, in which National Iranian Oil Company has about 15% stake, was operating a small refinery at the Cauvery Basin at Nagapattinam, where the new plant will be located.

CPCL will hold 25% stake in the new refinery for an investment of Rs 2,570 crore, while IOC and other seed equity investors including Axis Bank, HDFC Life Insurance Co, ICICI Bank, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Co and SBI Life Insurance, will hold the rest.
