The refinery is proposed to be located at Haldia, near Kolkata on the Eastern coast of India in the state of West Bengal. This affords several distinct advantages to the project, namely:
  • Proximity to the Far East and South East Asian markets as compared to refineries on the West Coast of India
  • Well developed local logistics and infrastructure, and proximity to the Haldia Port
  • Strong support and incentives from the Government of West Bengal
