During his visit to Mongolia, the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India had announced an extension of a line of credit worth USD 1 Billion by the government of India to Mongolia.

After several discussions, the Government of Mongolia decided to utilize this line of credit towards setting up Mongolia's first Oil Refinery. This project is the harbinger of energy and economic independence of Mongolia. This will ensure its sustained growth and development.

After continued efforts, EIL secured the contract for providing the project management consultancy (PMC) services for the 1.5 MMTPA Grassroot refinery project. The work on this refinery is progressing well. While creating tremendous job opportunities in Mongolia, it would also provide great opportunities to Indian industry to provide its goods and services for the refinery.
