Background

The pipeline has capacity of 11 million tonnes per year (220,000 barrels per day). It was commissioned in 2009.[1]

In 2015, the pipeline was augmented in a Rs 586-crore project involving laying 65 km of loopline and constructing five 60,000 kL tanks at Paradip and one 40,000 kL tank at Barauni, as well as adding a pumping station and additional pumping units at three locations.[2] The augmentation increased the pipeline's capacity from 11.0 million tons per year to 15.2 million tons per year.[2]

In October 2017, the pipeline received one of the first US shipments to India since the US ceased oil exports in 1975.[3]
