The Energy for India's Rise
Being The Energy of India is much more than just notching up a high revenue (Rs 5,14,890 crore revenue from operations in 2020-21). It is far more than being the highest-ranked Indian Energy PSU (Rank 212) in Fortune's 'Global 500' listing and the vision to become 'A Globally Admired Company.'
Being The Energy of India is about IndianOil, with its over 33,500-strong team, taking the lead in meeting India's energy demands efficiently and effectively today, just as it has done over the last six decades and an enterprise that fuels India's core sector for economic development.
Being The Energy of India is about IndianOil's business interests encompassing the entire hydrocarbon value chain- from refining, pipeline transportation & marketing, to exploration & production of crude oil & gas, petrochemicals, gas marketing, alternative energy sources and globalisation of downstream operations.
Being The Energy of India is also about IndianOil's global aspirations, fulfilled to an extent by the formation of subsidiaries in several countries, including Sri Lanka, Mauritius, the UAE. It is about pursuing diverse business interests by setting up multiple strategic joint ventures with reputed business partners from India and abroad to explore global opportunities.
