India's refining capacity was enhanced by 400, 000 bpd in 2012. Another 400, 000 bpd of capacity could be added in 2013 if Indian Oil Corporation's 300,000 bpd Paradip and Nagarjuna's 120,000 bpd Cuddalore refineries are completed by the end of 2013. Indian exports of refined petroleum products marked a great growth in October 2012, where it stood at 1.5 mbpd. Of this, 39 per cent was diesel, 25 per cent gasoline, 15 per cent naphtha and 8 per cent jet fuel.
