Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL), India’s largest integrated energy major with presence in oil, gas, petrochemicals and alternative energy sources, has selected AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software, to drive its digital transformation and sustainability. As a key initiative under the banner of its digitalization project i-DRIVE, IndianOil aspires to transform its scheduling work process across nine refineries and one petrochemical complex in India for implementation of Refinery Production Scheduler. AVEVA Unified Supply Chain will enable IOCL to digitalize its refinery and naphtha cracker scheduling workflows, optimize blend scheduling to meet daily product dispatch plans and provide end-to-end visibility across its operations.

Vaidya, Chairman, IndianOil said, “Streamlining crude feedstocks with plant scheduling is a particular challenge for our industry, intensified by operational challenges brought on by the pandemic. By implementing AVEVA technology, we shall be able to enhance efficiency by using a digital system-driven scheduling approach for consistent and value-focused operations. Most importantly, the new relationship will allow our energy professionals to focus on the business through enhanced decision support.”
