Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday said that efforts are being made to establish a petroleum refinery in the state soon.

After dedicating the Kota-Jobner multi-product pipeline and the Jobner installation of Bharat Petroleum to the nation near Jaipur, she addressed her speech about the setup of a refinery.

The state has become one of the biggest on-land oil and gas producing region in the country and now to get the full benefit of its resources, the state is making efforts to set up petroleum refinery soon.

An ultra-modern petroleum product storage and distribution installation located in village Asalpur in Jaipur district, the Jobner installation is built in an area of 95.75 acres at an investment of Rs.145 crore.

The pipeline, built at an investment of Rs.276 crore, is expected to ensure uninterrupted supply of petroleum products at Jaipur and the nearby markets.

Raje also urged Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who was the chief guest, to ensure supply of domestic gas through the pipeline in the cities selected to be developed as smart cities. Pradhan assured supplies would be made to Jaipur, Ajmer, Kota, and Udaipur.

Union Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Rajasthan’s Urban Housing and Development Minister Rajpal Singh Shekhawat were also present in the occasion.
