Located on the west coast of India, Vadinar Refinery is the facility where all the refining production processes are carried out. Constituting approximately 8% of India refining capacity, Vadinar Refinery is India’s second-largest single-site, state of the art refinery. It is one of the most modern and complex refineries (Nelson complexity index 11.8) in the world having businesses across the hydrocarbon value chain from refining to retail and is geared up to the vision of delivering crude to chemicals.

The refinery started commercial production on May 1, 2008, and is today India second-largest single - location refinery, capable of handling a diverse range of crude - from sweet to sour and light to ultra-heavy.

The Refinery has an annual capacity of 20 million metric tonnes (MMT) or 405,000 barrels per day (BPD).
It is capable of processing some of the toughest crudes and yet produces high-quality Euro IV and Euro VI grade products. Nayara produces high-quality Bharat Stage (BS-VI) compliant fuels that meet international standards. This brings it closer to global emission standards.
Due to its strategic geographical location, Vadinar is efficient in providing proximity to the Middle East and Africa and also facilitate access to high consumption domestic as well as the export market.
