The Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL) has geared up to face the prevailing global medical exigency arising out of coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown imposed by the Government to contain the disease.

“The company is operating round the clock with bare minimum staff manning operations in its refinery and two marketing terminals in Numaligarh and Siliguri. As on date, the refinery is running around at full throughput supported by employees working on 12-hour shifts, observing complete social distancing,” NRL said in a statement.

NRL’s objective is to ensure availability of essential transportation fuel MS and HSD and LPG, scarcity of which would hit the masses.

NRL is maximising its LPG production to prevent scarcity of the commodity in the event refinery output has to be reduced due to lower demand for MS and HSD, it added.
