Indian refiners, which rarely bought Russian oil in the past, have been snapping up discounted barrels after Western buyers shunned purchases from Russia following its invasion of Ukraine.

He said firm had no plans to import Russian oil in the immediate future.
During the call, a company executive said MRPL planned maintenance at crude unit-II at its 300,000 barrels per day refinery in the September quarter of next year. The refinery has three crude units.
