Paradip-Haldia-Barauni Oil Pipeline (PHBPL) is an oil pipeline in India.
The pipeline originates at Paradip Port, Jagatsinghpur district, Odisha, and terminates at the IOCL Barauni Refinery, Bihar.
- Operator: IndianOil
- Current capacity: 305,205.5 barrels of oil per day
- Length: 328 kilometers / 204 miles
- Status: Operating
- Start Year: 2009
The pipeline has capacity of 11 million tonnes per year (220,000 barrels per day). It was commissioned in 2009.
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. The augmentation increased the pipeline's capacity from 11.0 million tons per year to 15.2 million tons per year.
In October 2017, the pipeline received one of the first US shipments to India since the US ceased oil exports in 1975.
