India sends first diesel consignment to Myanmar
India has sent its first consignment of 30 metric tonnes (MT) of high-speed diesel (HSD) to Myanmar by land. Numaligarh Refinery (NRL), dispatched the first diesel consignment, said a government statement. NRL has been supplying HSD to Bangladesh. NRL entered into an agreement with Parami Energy Group of Companies for the supply of diesel, and collaboration in the retail petroleum sector of Myanmar. NRL, situated 420 km from the India-Myanmar border, is ideal to supply diesel to northern Myanmar, where connectivity is a challenge. NRL has already exported 1700 MT of Paraffin wax to Myanmar.
