PTI cited Mathura Refinery's executive director Larry Wright Khongwir, as saying that Mathura refinery has decided to go for innovation and revamp of its two units to meet the challenge of 100 per cent production of BS-VI grade fuel by 2020. Mr Khongwir said that "With the addition of third reactor in series to the existing two reactors and furnace, Prime G (gasoline de- sulphurization) unit of Mathura refinery is being revamped for ensuring BS-VI petrol with sulphur content 8ppm (wt)."

Mr Khongwir said that both the revamped units are expected to be commissioned by September 2019. India plans to leapfrog to BS-VI fuel norms, which are equivalent to Euro-VI norms, by April 2020 directly from current BS-IV norms.

However, the government has advanced implementation the BS-VI fuels in the National Capital from 2018 to curb emissions.

Mr Khongwir said the biggest target for the refinery this year is to supply BS-VI high speed diesel (HSD) to Delhi NCR.
