NEW DELHI, Sept 20 (Reuters) - India's Hindustan Petroleum
Corp Ltd aims to operate its fire-hit 166,000 barrels
per day Vizag refinery at full capacity by the end of this
month, V.V.R. Narasimham, executive director at the plant said
HPCL had partly shut the refinery on August 23 after a fire
in one of its two cooling towers.
"Currently we are in process of making alternative
arrangement, which should be done in next few days," Narasimham
He said HPCL will use its other cooling tower and partly
revive the damaged unit to cool the refined products.
"We aim to process crude at full capacity of about 24,000
tonnes a day by the end of this month," he added.
