1 Jun 2017

Sanjiv Singh has taken over as Chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IndianOil) with effect from 1st June, 2017. Prior to his elevation, he was Director (Refineries) on the IndianOil Board since July 2014. Concurrently, he will also be Chairman of Chennai Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (CPCL) and Hindustan Urvarak and Rasayan Ltd. (HURL), a joint venture company set up to revive the fertiliser plants at Gorakhpur, Sindri and Barauni.
With extensive experience in the refining sector, Mr. Singh played a key role in the setting up, commissioning and stabilisation of two of IndianOil’s biggest greenfield refineries at Panipat and Paradip. The commissioning of IndianOil’s 11th refinery at Paradip in early 2016, with a capex of Rs. 34,555 crore, is his benchmark contribution to the Indian refining sector. Mr. Singh has also steered the successful implementation of the petrochemical projects of Paraxylene/PTA and Naphtha Cracker with downstream units at Panipat Refinery.
He has been a driving force in conceptualising India’s mammoth 60 million tonnes per annum refinery being set-up on the West coast of India, which will transform the refining landscape of India. Playing a leadership role in the energy sector, he is partnering India’s vision of emerging as a 'refining hub' in South Asia. (EOIC)
