For achieving greater synergies, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) is planning to amalgamate two of its wholly owned subsidiaries, Bharat Oman Refineries (BORL) and Bharat Gas Resources (BGRL) into the company. After amalgamation, BPCL is expected to be in a better position for optimising its business plan of retailing compressed natural gas at its city gas distribution networks further. This will be done in the light of BPCL’s 24 per cent share of the number of Indian fuel retail outlets, enhancing its potential to transform these outlets into holistic energy stations that can cater to multiple types of fuel needs. Currently, BORL owns and operates a 7.8 million tons a year refinery in Binar, Madhya Pradesh while BPCL operates oil refineries at Mumbai and Kerala.
