Petrofac was awarded a contract by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) in 2018 for its Sulphur Recovery Unit (SRU) Block Package for the Visakh Refinery Modernisation Project (VRMP), Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Both demonstrate our growth strategy in action and the continued strength of our capability in the refinery sector.
