Indian state-run Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL) is seeking to import 12,000 metric tons of calcined petroleum coke, company sources said on Wednesday, February 27.

The sources said that the imports of petcoke are aimed as a partial replacement of metallurgical grade coal for its coke oven batteries and also as a partial substitute for pulverized coal directly injected into the blast furnace.

The overseas supplies to be selected through competitive tender bidding will need to make deliveries of 500 mt every fortnight starting from April 2019, the sources added.

Supplies will need to meet specifications of minimum fixed carbon content of 99 percent, maximum sulphur of 1.0 percent, maximum silicon content of 0.05 percent and maximum iron content of 0.04 percent, the sources added.
