KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, March 25 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Shell Global Solutions (GS) signed an agreement with the Centre for High Technology, India (CHT) to improve operational efficiency and business performance of three Indian refineries.

The contract, a Refinery Performance Improvement Program (RPIP), will be implemented over three years at Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. at their Mumbai refineries and at Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Ltd in Mangalore — and aims to help the three coastal refineries achieve margin improvements of US$ 25 cents/bbl over their total refining capacity of about 32 million metric tons per annum.
