 Indian Oil, a major supplier to core sector
Supplier of fuel (more than 80% of requirement) to Government organizations i.e. army, railways, state road transports, air force & navy Key sectors fertilizer, power & aviation are largely dependent upon Indian Oil.

Bottom Line
In marketing, IndianOil is set to leverage the combined strength of over 32,000 marketing touch points, with focus on hitherto untapped rural markets, non-fuel revenues and pure retailing business. IndianOil aspires to be Asia’s leading commercial R&D organisation in the downstream hydrocarbon sector by building on its capabilities in developing innovative technologies, products and processes, and nodal research in alternative fuels. 
Beyond core businesses, IndianOil is working to emerge as a major player in the petrochemicals business by the year 2011-12, with two petrochemical hubs shaping up at Panipat and Paradip. In natural gas business, it is attempting quantum growth in LNG imports, infrastructure and marketing, besides city gas distribution. In the high-risk business of oil exploration & production, IndianOil’s consortium approach with established players is paying off well in terms of exceptional Government support and successful forays in India and abroad. Its current interests are focussed on oil equity and sourcing of natural gas, predominantly from African and CIS countries, by leveraging its downstream capabilities to form joint venture partnerships with reputed enterprises overseas.
With India’s energy needs projected to grow by 40% in the next five years, the future is indeed full of promise for IndianOil; a future the 31,700 strong IndianOil team shall build as they fuel the dreams of over a billion of their countrymen.
