Union Minister of State for Petroleum & Natural Gas, Labour and Employment Rameswar Teli Tuesday informed that a project report for renewal and upgrade of Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) Dimapur depot had been submitted to IOC marketing department for necessary action.
Talking to Nagaland Post during his visit and inspection of the depot here on Tuesday, he said this had been done as the depot was old and required upgrade.
He mentioned that the proposal for upgrade and renewal of the depot, which was set up in 1987, had been submitted to IOC marketing department for an estimated cost of Rs 200 crore. He assured of consulting with the marketing department and instruct it to take up the work of upgrading the depot at the earliest, so that the depot could continue catering to the needs of the entire State.
“Since Dimapur depot caters to the entire demand for oil in Nagaland, I will emphasise upgrading the depot with top priority,” he added.
Asked about exploration of oil in the State, Teli replied that he along with senior officials from the Ministry held a meeting with chief minister Neiphiu Rio to discuss oil exploration. Though there was no immediate outcome of the meeting, he expressed the hope that something positive would happen.
