Construction of underground rock caverns for storage of imported crude oil

SKE&C-KCT JV has undertaken the construction of underground rock caverns for the storage of 1.5 MMT of imported crude oil, at Mangalore.

The Ministry of Petroleum & Gas, the Government of India, set up a special purpose vehicle, the Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserves Limited ("ISPRL"), to implement, maintain and operate the strategic storage of crude oil. This storage is to provide the necessary energy security to the country, 5MMT of crude oil or the equivalent of 20 days of cover, during emergencies/ disruption of supplies.

The initiative comprised of three Projects at Mangalore, Padur and Visakhapatnam for the storage of 5MMT of crude oil which is expected to be completed by 2012.

Engineering investigation works

The work involved:

  • the boring of exploration drift; a cross sectional area 6-9 sqm along a total length of 1,300m;
  • pit excavation of surface 5-15m deep;
  • diamond drilling with recovery of core at surface as well as underground in vertical, inclined and horizontal planes; and
  • permeability and other laboratory tests for soil, rock and concrete.

The Investigation Report was submitted in March 1994.
