India-Oman Oil Refinery at Bina is likely to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh by this month-end, sources at the refinery said.

Although the production has begun, the formal inauguration is yet to be done, the sources said.

They said the formal opening was slated to be held on November 19 last year, for which the PM, Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Petroleum Minister Murli Deora had given their consent. But the inauguration was put off in view of US President Barack Obama’s trip to India.

Presently, preparations are being made for the inauguration latest by this month-end, they said.
