Engineering

During the year, the Engineering Divisions of EIL continued their efforts towards providing optimized and value added services for all ongoing projects consistent with the client requirements and objectives of the Company. The various divisions maintained focus on key areas like System Improvement and quality of deliverables, enhanced productivity by adopting knowledge from past data, repeatability of design, enhanced software application and implementation of Electronic Data Management System (eDMS) alongwith improved information exchange and communication systems resulting in lesser manual interfaces. Major emphasis was laid on Automation and Standardization of systems, implementation of Internal Audit and Monitoring and updation of specifications standards and guides. A large number of innovative processes, concepts and technologies were implemented for the first time this year and some of them are as follows:

- Maiden Implementation of 66KV Gas Insulated Indoor Switchboards for a project being executed in EPCM mode including development of specifications, data sheets, offer evaluation and preparation of contract specifications (Technical). Till recently, EIL had been going in for 33KV as primary distribution voltage for all projects being executed in conventional mode. For DORC''s 20MMTPA refinery cum petrochemical project, 66KV has been designated as the primary distribution voltage across the plant in view of the large quantum of Electric Power required to be handled and distributed because of the mega size of the plant and future expansion plans for the same.

- Development of new specifications for XLPE insulated Fire Retardant Low Smoke Extra High Voltage Cables, suitable working voltage being enhanced from 66KV to 220KV. This was done in view of mega projects wherein 66KV or higher voltage is required.

- Use of energy efficient electrical equipment/systems has been initiated in all projects. As a responsible corporate with concern for global warming and carbon foot print, use of energy efficient motors of min. 1E2 type and 100% LED fixtures for lighting of process / offsite and utilities has been initiated. This has been made a standard practice for all projects being handled.

- To provide protection from soil side corrosion of carbon steel mounded bullets (new construction) with operating temperature not exceeding 55 deg.C, application of thermally sprayed Zn coating (TSZC) with paint top coat on external surface mounded bullet is employed as sacrificial type CP System. This requires no maintenance and monitoring. For corrosion protection of steel components exposed to water, bimetallic component (new construction) of cooler and condenser, application of thermally sprayed aluminum coatings (TSAC) with top coat Sealant on channel, tube sheet, flange faces, gasket seating surface is used as sacrificial type CP System. This also does not require maintenance and monitoring system.

Focused Services for corrosion protection and refurbishment of existing facilities:

- Revamping the Corrosion Protection system for LPG mounded storage tanks at GPU, Usar.

- Corrosion Protection audit for Vizag Refinery.

- Pipeline Inspection and CIPL survey of five pipelines from Jawahar Dweep to Pirpau, Mumbai Port Trust.

- Miscellaneous troubleshooting/consulting related to Corrosion Protection activities in IOCL, Mathura/ONGC/GAIL etc.

New technologies implemented/proposed by Instrumentation Department during the year are as under:

- GSM/RF based automatic water consumption data gathering system for household water metering in AMRUT Project for nine cities of Odisha.

- Study Report on implementation of Wireless TETRA system in BORL Refinery complex and its adjacent township. The study includes integration of existing VHF based system with TETRA system.

- A PLC based loading arm system for sensing loading arms and enforcing shutdown of the same in case of emergencies at Mumbai Port Trust Jetty Project.

- Maiden usage of Inception type aspiration based smoke detection system for the rooms of offshore platforms in Neelam Redevelopment project, ONGC.

New technologies implemented/proposed by Equipment Division during the year are as under:

- Basic design and engineering of Non-Conventional Coke Dispatch scheme for Aishwarya Project of IOCL to accomplish complete rake loading in space constraints i.e. in space approximately 3 times lesser than that required in conventional scheme. This has been achieved for the first time in EIL.

- Design and engineering of Truck Loading gantry to take care of wide variation in tanker sizes from 33 kl to 60 kl was carried out for Dangote Refinery & Petrochemical plant for the first time.

Risk Management

The Company has a Risk Management policy and a supporting frame work which facilitates the identification and assessment of new risks and review of existing risks. The process is based on identified risks and the risk events or factors which require regular assessment and quick response. Based on the probability and impact of the risk, the requisite controls and action plans are designed. To measure the adequacy, effectiveness and efficiency of these controls and action plans, the concept of Key Risk Indicators (KRIs) has been implemented. KRIs have been designed and are being implemented to measure presence, level, or trend of the risk.

The objective of risk management in the Company is to act as enabler in maintaining its knowledge edge, sustaining and expanding the business, being competitive and ensuring execution of projects within budgeted cost and time resulting in improved turnover and profitability.

In order to cover all the elements of risks while identifying, nine categories have been defined by the management & risks in each have been identified at enterprise level. Risks, their root causes, controls and action plans are prepared by process owners and updated regularly. These are approved by the Risk Management Committee (RMC) with Director (Finance) as chairman of RMC and all the Executive Directors, CGM (ITS), GM (Inspection) & Company Secretary as members, with Head of Risk Group as member secretary. Risk audits are conducted regularly to test the compliance of controls and the same is reported to RMC.

Based on periodic reviews and implementations of recommendations resulting from review process, the ERM process is continuously improved and strengthened. Project Risk Management is being implemented for high value and important projects as per the criteria approved by RMC. A risk register is prepared by listing all possible risk events of every discipline associated with the project. Risk Management Team approves the first risk register & meets every month to update it and continuously focuses on the identified risks. The risks severities are categorized in critical, major, cautionary and minor based on the probability and overall impact. Project Risk Management helps in facilitating management towards risk mitigation for effective project implementation.

The risk identification & assessment processes have been automated by Enterprise Risk Management System (ERMS) software.

The communication is being done regularly, across the organization to spread awareness on risks, root causes and action plans through in-house risk management awareness programs, external trainings & seminars, certification program on Project Risk Management.

To create awareness & increase the involvement of employees, the quarterly news letter ''Risk Screen'' was converted into a bi-monthly newsletter during this period. It is being shared with all the employees to inspire them to control risks in their work processes & areas.

The management is committed to further strengthen its risk management capabilities in order to protect and enhance shareholder value by improving its business performance.

Management Discussion & Analysis

A separate report on Management Discussion and Analysis is annexed to this Report.

Petroleum Refining

Petroleum Refining sector continued to play a dominant role in Company's business. During the year, EIL has achieved good progress on the following major jobs, some of which were commissioned/likely to be commissioned in the next financial year. These jobs include:

- 9 MMTPA grassroot Guru Gobind Singh Refinery Project of HPCL - Mittal Energy Limited at Bathinda, Punjab has been successfully commissioned in record time of less than 44 months. The Refinery was dedicated to the Nation by the Hon'ble Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh on April 28, 2012. The Refinery consists of SPM (Onshore & Offshore) for receiving crude from tankers and crude oil terminal at Mundra for storage and onward pumping to refinery at Bathinda through 1014 km of 30" / 28" cross country pipeline, CPP of 165 MW capacity and secondary process units viz. VGO HDT, PFCC, DCU, MS Block, DHDT to achieve high distillates yields meeting EURO-IV norms and a petrochemical unit producing Polypropylene. The Refinery is energy efficient and environment friendly. Diverse environment protection measures have been incorporated in the design of all project facilities which includes SRU, state-of-the-art ETP, Vapour Recovery System and low NOx burners in furnaces. This has provision for producing Euro-V product also along with alkylation unit in the future. The Refinery has been built at the cost of USD 4 billion.

- Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL), a subsidiary of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited having a nameplate capacity of 9.69 MMTPA, has processed close to 12 MMTPA of crude with their Phase-I and Phase-II units. As part of Phase-III Refinery facilities, MRPL has planned to upgrade the refinery to meet Euro-III/IV specifications for its entire Diesel pool, including exports and also increase the crude processing capacity to 15 MMTPA by adding CDU/VDU of 3.0 MMTPA capacity. Associated Utilities/Offsites are being augmented to cater to MRPL's Phase-III requirements. The entire Project is being implemented on hybrid mode of LSTK/OBE/conventional system for various units. Major secondary processing facilities are being implemented on LSTK/OBE route while all the Utilities/Offsites are being implemented on EPCM route. EIL is the PMC for the LSTK contractors and EPCM consultant for Utilities/Offsites works. EIL has also been awarded the OBE-orders for the PFCC, SRU and PPU of Phase-III Project.

MRPL had targeted to commission, at least, the CDU/VDU before March, 2012. They declared mechanical completion of CDU/VDU in November, 2011. Utilities/Offsites, being implemented in EPCM mode under EIL had faced several unique impediments during construction phase like the enormous site grading, hard rock in patches of the site, PDFs, saving Benkinatheshwar temple, unprecedented rains and many more issues. EIL's management encouraged and supported its team for making all-out efforts for Utilities and Offsites to be made ready before March, 2012. Dedicated efforts by EIL/MRPL team of engineers, well- supported by the Managements of both the organizations and Contractors led to completion of the required Utilities/Offsites also, ensuring smooth commissioning of CDU/VDU on March 29, 2012 i.e. well within the targeted dates. Client could dispatch all the products from the new units and could realize the huge Income Tax benefit under section 80 (ib) for which Govt. of India had fixed March 31, 2012 as last date.

Other process units, DHDT, HGU and CHTU are also in the process of commissioning.

MRPL under Phase-III Expansion Project have embarked upon a major initiative to not only upgrade the value of the products from their existing refinery, but also to enhance their profitability considerably by installing a Petrochemical Fluidized Catalytic Cracking (PFCC) for production of Polymer Grade Propylene. The PFCC Unit has been awarded to EIL on OBE convertible to LSTK mode. The PFCCU forms the key secondary processing facility of this Project and is one of the pivotal units which add substantive value to the Project. The unit has been licensed by M/s Shaw Stone & Webster and is designed for a high severity operation with a capacity of 2.2 MMTPA to produce about 4,45,000 TPA of Polymer Grade Propylene. The difficulty factor is highly exacerbated on account of the extreme criticalities arising out of the unit size and associated complications. The sheer magnitude and the volume of work involved in the Project itself poses critical challenges of building one of the most complex process units in the Refining industry, implemented hitherto in India. The construction activities of the Unit are in advanced stage of completion.

SRU Block is also being implemented on OBE convertible to LSTK mode. Mechanical completion of Amine Regeneration Unit achieved as part of SRU and balance works is in advance stage of mechanical completion.

MRPL also awarded the Polypropylene Unit (PPU) to EIL on OBE convertible to LSTK mode of implementation. Detailed engineering and procurement activities are in advanced stage of completion.
