IOCL (Indian Oil Corporation Limited) partners communities in which it operates by supporting innumerable initiatives connected with health, family welfare, education, environment protection, provision of potable water, sanitation, and empowerment of women and other marginalised groups. IndianOil has always been in the forefront in times of national emergencies, and IndianOil People have time and again rallied to help victims of natural calamities by maintaining uninterrupted supply of petroleum products, and contributing to relief and rehabilitation measures in cash and kind. If you want to become a part of this company, you can find out all the necessary information related to IOCL recruitment on this page.

IOCL (Indian Oil Corporation Ltd.) is India's  largest company by  sales with a  turnover of   Rs. 4,37,526 crore and profits of Rs. 5,273 crore for the year 2014-15.

IndianOil is the highest ranked Indian company in the latest Fortune ‘Global 500’ listings, ranked at the 96th position. IndianOil's vision is driven by a group of dynamic leaders who have made it a name to reckon with.

In this section, read about IndianOil’s business and its spread across the country & abroad. You can also know about IndianOil's current financial performance, special initiatives and recognitions & awards that have come its way.

Indane is today one of the largest packed-LPG brands in the world and has been conferred the coveted ‘Consumer Superbrand’ status by the Superbrands Council of India.

Having launched LPG marketing in the mid-60s, IndianOil has been credited with bringing about a ‘kitchen revolution,’ spreading warmth and cheer in millions of households with the introduction of the clean and efficient cooking fuel. It has led to a substantial improvement in the health of women, especially in rural areas by replacing smoky and unhealthy chulha. Indane is today an ideal fuel for modern kitchens, synonymous with safety, reliability and convenience.

With the status of an exclusive business vertical within the Corporation, the Indane network delivers 1.2 million cylinders a day to the doorsteps of over 8.95 crore households, making IndianOil the second largest marketer of LPG globally, after SHV Gas of The Netherlands. Indane is available in compact 5 kg cylinders for rural, hilly and inaccessible areas, 14.2 kg cylinders for domestic use, and 19 kg and 47.5 kg for commercial and industrial use.

Indane at your doorstep LPG is a blend of Butane and Propane readily liquefied under moderate pressure. LPG vapour is heavier than air; thus it normally settles down in low-lying places. Since LPG has only a faint scent, a mercaptan odorant is added to help in its detection. In the event of an LPG leak, the vapourisation of liquid cools the atmosphere and condenses the water vapour contained in it to form a whitish fog, which is easy to observe. LPG in fairly large concentrations displaces oxygen leading to a nauseous or suffocating feeling.

AutoGas (LPG) is a clean, high octane, abundant and eco-friendly fuel. It is obtained from natural gas through fractionation and from crude oil through refining. It is a mixture of petroleum gases like propane and butane. The higher energy content in this fuel results in a 10% reduction of CO2 emission as compared to MS.

AutoGas is a gas at atmospheric pressure and normal temperatures, but it can be liquefied when moderate pressure is applied or when the temperature is sufficiently reduced. This property makes the fuel an ideal energy source for a wide range of applications, as it can be easily condensed, packaged, stored and utilised. When the pressure is released, the liquid makes up about 250 times its volume as gas, so large amounts of energy can be stored and transported compactly.

The use of LPG as an automotive fuel has become legal in India with effect from April 24, 2000, albeit within the prescribed safety terms and conditions. Hitherto, the thousands of LPG vehicles running in various cities have been doing so illegally by using domestic LPG cylinders, a very unsafe practice. Using domestic LPG cylinders in automobiles is still illegal.

The fuel is marketed by IndianOil under the brand name ‘AutoGas’

IndianOil has setup 350 Auto LPG Dispensing Stations (ALDS) covering 192 cities across India.

AutoGas impacts greenhouse emissions less than any other fossil fuel when measured through the total fuel cycle. Conversion of petrol to AutoGas helps substantially reduce air pollution caused by vehicular emissions.

The saving on account of conversion to AutoGas in comparison to petrol is about 35-40%. Low filling times and the 35-40% saving is a reason enough for a consumer to convert his vehicle to AutoGas.
