Mangaluru: Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited’s (MRPL) Single Point Moorin (SPM) Station has successfully created a milestone by unloading 500 crude oil vessels on Monday November 15, that has made significant savings in foreign exchange while generating revenue to both State and Central exchequer.

MT Euroglory from Saudi Arabia with 1.35 MMT capacity which is being unloaded at SPM, has become the 500th Vessel unloaded by MRPL.

MRPL’s SPM was inaugurated in August 2013, Ratna Puja being the first vessel to be unloaded. Since then Team MRPL has successfully unloaded 75.5 Million Metric Tonnes through 500 vessels in 3 different categories namely, Afra Max (below 1 Lakh Metric Tonne), Suez Max (1.5 Lakh MT) & VLCC – Very Large Crude Carriers (upto 2.8 Lakh MT).

MRPL at SPM has unloaded vessels from countries like Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and also USA. Team MRPL has bravely withstood various challenges in achieving this incredible feat.

Till 2012, MRPL unloaded crude only through smaller ships which were unloaded at Jetty 11 & 12 of NMPT. The smaller ships with less than 245 metre length and 14 metre draught (part of ship within sea) only could be unloaded at Jetty. At SPM now MRPL is able to attend vessels with 330 Metre length and with 22 metre draught.

M. Venkatesh, Managing Director congratulated team MRPL on achieving this great feat and thanked teams from operations and maintenance. He also thanked service provider of Underwater Service Co. Ltd., Pomila Jaspal Director- Finance and Sanjay Varma, Director- Refinery who were directly involved in making this achievement possible.
