Ambassador of the Republic of India to Mongolia Mohinder Pratap Singh, Senior Advisor to the Prime Minister B.Enkh-Amgalan and other officials got acquainted with the ongoing infrastructure development of the new oil refinery in Dornogobi aimag.


The road construction is running at around 80 percent while the railroad construction was completed on May 22 this year. The road construction is planned to be completed within September.


Aside from the auto and rail roads, a 110 kW power transmission line and sub-station will be commissioned by July 1.


Ambassador of the Republic of India to Mongolia Mohinder Pratap Singh:


“I got the confidence that the oil refinery establishment project will wrap up within the timeframe. Thank you, the Government of Mongolia and Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh for giving your full support to the project which is very significant to bilateral relations and cooperation. I would not have believed this much work could be done if I had not seen it with my own eyes. I am pleased with the fruitfulness of the investment.”


Even the locals are taking part in the construction works and local companies are supplying concrete, cement, gravel, other materials and food for the workers.

“We agreed with Ambassador Mohinder Pratap Singh to train the refinery’s staff at the local vocational training center and to make up 30 percent of the people to be upskilled in India from the locals.”


With a yearly capacity of 1.5 million tons, the oil refinery which is being built with a soft loan from India will replace imports worth USD 1.2 billion and its establishment opens a new page in Mongolia-India relations and cooperation.
