Digboi Oil Refinery Reviews & Ratings
Small heritage refinery .. built by British ... Nothing much to do here.. except giving you a glimpse of India's Colonial past.. It should be made a pilot plant instead for R&D type of things.. where the nerds could work as well as enjoy the scenic natural beauty... Calling it a Refinery in this age is a shame no matter how much politically incorrect that statement would be...
The first oil refinery in India established by the British Govt in 1901. It is under IOC (Indian Oil Corporation), a public sector company. Oil contained muds pumped from nearby oilfields are processed here. This refinery produces all types of petroleum products viz. Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene, Ethanol, Wax, Tar, Cooking gas etc. It is one of the oldest and biggest refineries in the globe.
Did my internship here. Got to see most of the units first hand.
As this my working place. It's wonderful and as it's the oldest refinery .
