I would like to thank my project guide Mr. ANAND THITE (Deputy General Manager – F & A) for his kind support and invaluable guidance in term of theoretical as well as practical knowledge and experience. His willingness to motivate us and showing us some examples that related to the topic of our project, has contributed tremendously to my project. Along with the project work, his real life examples and motivational talks have given me a new way to see the world in a different way. A successful project can never be prepared by an individual efforts but it also needs a guardianship and full support of some people who actively participated in guiding and completing the project. I would also like to thank Mr. HARDIK VAIDYA (Assistant Manager) whose guidance and co-operation have helped me in completing the project successfully. I would also thankful to Mr. BHARAT KAKKAD (Joint General Manager ) who has given me opportunity to enhance myself and my potentials for the purpose of summer internship project. I would also like to thank all my colleagues who directly or indirectly supported me for betterments and improvements. I would also like to thank SOM-LALIT INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT for Higher Education for permitting me to do my summer internship in VADINAR OIL TERMINAL Ltd.(ESPLL) and all faculties who were there with me to provide guidance and support. All these have helped me to make this project successful. This project has given me an exposure in terms of great learning, knowledge and practical experience. Knowledge in itself is a continuous process. At this moment, of this substantial enhancement I rarely find enough words to express our gratitude towards those who were constantly involved with me until successfully completion of my project.

Beginning of Essar Group:
The Essar Group was founded in 1969 by brothers Shri Shashi Ruia and Shri Ravi Ruia. The Ruia family’s origins are in Rajasthan. Sometime in the 19th century, it moved to Mumbai and set up its own business. In 1956, Shri Nandkishore Ruia, father to Shri Shashi and Ravi Ruia, moved to Chennai, capital of the south Indian state of Tamil nadu, to begin independent business activities. He mentored his two sons in the intricacies of business. When Shri Nandkishore Ruia passed away in 1969, the brothers laid the foundation of the Group. The Essar Group began its operations with the construction of an outer breakwater in Chennai port. It quickly moved to capitalize on every emerging business opportunity, becoming India’s first private company to buy a tanker in 1976. The Group also invested in a diverse shipping fleet and oil rigs, when the Government of India opened up the shipping and drilling businesses to private players in the 1980s. Through the 1990s, with the gradual liberalization of the Indian economy, Essar seized every opportunity that came its way. It diversified its shipping fleet, started oil & gas exploration and production, laid the foundation of its oil refinery at Vadinar, Gujarat, and set up a power plant near the steel complex in Hazira. The Construction business helped the Group build most of its business assets. Essar also entered the GSM telephony business, establishing India’s first mobile phone service in Delhi (branded Essar Cell phone) with Swiss PTT as the joint venture partner. The 21st century for the Essar Group has been all about consolidating and growing the businesses, with M & As, new revenue streams and strategic geographical expansion. The name of the company ESSAR‘ is getting from the first letter of the two brothers SHASHI‘ and RAVI‘ S‘ as ESS‘ and R‘ as AR‘ thus the combination of them make ―ESSAR.

Turn Around Time:
It is the time that takes to get a job done and deliver the output, once the Job is submitted for processing. Turnaround may be as simple as unloading and reloading a delivery truck before sending it out again, or as complex as Completing a merge/purge of several rented lists, getting a product into the Buyer’s hands once it is ordered, or receiving approval on a proof that has been Submitted to the print buyer. In most cases, a short turnaround time is economically advantageous, making the most efficient use of time and Resources. TAT starts when FAN is generated. Research Methodology:

Research methodology is a way to systematically solve the research Problem. It may be understood as a science of studying now research is done Systematically. In that various steps, those are generally adopted by a researcher in studying his problem along with the logic behind them. It is important for research to know not only the research method but also know methodology. work of describing, explaining and predicting phenomenon are called methodology. Methods comprise the procedures used for generating, collecting and evaluating data. All this means that it is necessary for the researcher to design his methodology for his problem as the same may differ from problem to Problem. Data collection is important step in any project and success of any project will be largely depend upon now much accurate you will be able to collect and how much time, money and effort will be required to collect that necessary data, this is also important step. Data collection plays an important role in research work. Without proper data available for analysis you cannot do the research work accurately.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


Problem Definition:
At Essar we analyzed turnaround time of TTs loading process. Currently the average time to load a truck is around 2hrs 5min and we are able to load near about 450 TTs a day which is a huge success for road supply. The objective of our study is to make this process more effective and efficient by reducing turnaround time at its optimal level. In short, the project is about optimization of time and resources.

Data collection:
To make our study more on the practical basis and not theoretical all the data we used is primary and collected by analyzing each stage of process.

NE gate Office :

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


The process of truck loading starts from here.
This office is situated at North-East side of refinery. That‘s why it is called ‗North-East Gate (NE Gate)‘. There are three windows in this office: Window – 1 Window – 2 Window – 3 In Window – 1, the activity of creating database including information like TT Number, Driver‘s Name, and Khalasi‘s Name, Transporter‘s Name and Other details. For this, different-different forms have been generated according to the Customers. [A] Annexure 1A: IOCL HPCL BPCL Shell India [B] Annexure 1B: ELL/Essar Dairy Gold Plus Shah Alloys Gill [C] Annexure 1C: Kotak Vinergy Ramdoot G L Khanna Alishan GSEC Shiv Petroleum West Coast Chetak Form – 1

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


In Window – 2 & 3, an activity of putting TTs into the Online Vehicle Tracking System (VTS) is done. In these two windows, basically, checking is done. The following is the Check List Slip issued at NE Gate Office to TT drivers and the mentioned things are checked. Document Checklist: Valid Original Driving License & Registration Book Valid Insurance Certificate & Fitness Certificate (Original or notarized) Valid Explosive License & Calibration Certificate ( Original or notarized) Physical Checklist Approved Spark Arrester (Welded in front of TTs towards driver's side DCP fire extinguisher (2 No. 10 KG.

LPG height barriers, Earthling Strip of cabin / compartment LPG emergency kit ( For LPG carriers only) Condition of pressure gauge ( For LPG carriers only) Condition of temperature gauge ( For LPG carriers only) After all these checking if everything is all right, then the particular TT is entered into the Online Vehicle Tracking System by following way: Time taken at NE Gate Office is 2 minutes.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


Vehical Tracking System :

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


The average time taken at NE gate Office 2.1793 minutes. Three people are there at NE Gate Office, who handles all the activities there. Once the checking is done, the TTs are allowed to move to Time Office.

Time Office :

Time Office is the second place after the TTs have been entered into the Vehicle Tracking System. Between NE Gate to Time Office TTs are checked by security. Once the process gets over, TTs are parked in the parking in front of Time Office where it has a capacity of 700 TTs.
First of all, mails are received from the parties in which Purchase Orders / Indents have been placed. After that it is checked the amount has been

received in advance to Essar.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


After entering into the time office area, the driver sits in the truck while the khalasi comes to the Window – 1 and produce the Check List Slip to the officer, sitting in Window – 1.

After this, an Outbound Delivery Number is generated. Here, Outbound Delivery Numbers are generated according to the No. of products placed in the indent. At Window – 2, shipments are generated for PSUs (Here, the procedure is going on according to shift wise.) and then it is delivered to particular drivers. At Window – 3, Terminal Automation System (TAS) is made by which we can trace any TT in the refinery. Then, Filling Authorization Note (FAN) is generated in which all the information like TT Number, Products to be loaded, in what quantity, Gantry No., Bay No., etc. are recorded. After that Touch Key is issued. At Window – 4, planning for FO and Bitumen is done. Generally, in Time Office, the work at window – 4 is somewhat more important and with full of responsibility. It is also called ―The Hot Seat‖ and it becomes hotter as day passes. The average time taken at Time Office is 20 minutes.

Tanks Farm Area:

Tanks Farm is the area which comes under the S&D Department. Generally, S&D Department has four different areas like TLCB, RLCB, Gantry and Tank Farms. Tanks Farm is the area which act as an intermediately between PIT Area and Gantry. There are three types of tanks in Tanks Farm Area: External Floating Tanks:

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


Internal Floating Tanks Cone Floating Tanks .First of all, crude oil is refined in the refinery. Then sample from each product like MS, HSD, SKO, ATF, FO, Bitumen, LPG is taken for testing in lab and after testing these products are certified.

After this, all these products are stored safely Product Intermediate Tanks (PIT). According to the requirements, products are transferred PIT to Tanks Farm Area by pipelines. In Tank Farm, there are 23 tanks.

1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8)

4 Tanks – HSD 4 Tanks – MS 4 Tanks – FO 4 Sphere – LPG 1 Tank – ATF 2 Tanks – SKO 2 Tanks – Bitumen 2 Tanks – Ethanol

Tanks Farm Area is also known as ―Dispatch Tanks‖. There are some rules and regulations and procedure before storing products in the tanks Farm Area. First of all, samples from Dispatch Tanks are collected for testing. These samples are again tested and certified in the lab. The result from testing at both places PIT and Dispatch Tanks should be same. Once the sample is same then only, products are allowed to transfer to Tanks Farm Area. If there is inequality in testing then retesting is done. Testing the sample always proves to be correct. There are very less chance retesting for inequalities in the products.

These are 1) Inlet 2) Outlet 3) Water ‖ Inlet pipeline is for product receipt. ‖ Outlet pipeline is for product dispatch. ‖ Water pipeline is to sort out water from tanks at the time of raining.

The Gantry is the place where all the TTs are loaded.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


First of all, trucks are parked in the bays. Then ‗Earthling Strip’ connected to TTs and then Touch Key is touched at Batch Control Unit Machine.

Yellow Light – For Acknowledgement Green Light – For Process Red Light – For Emergency
There is new Gantry 6 starting in year 2009-10 which is due to Expansion in the capacity to 18 mmtp from 12.5 mmtp for HSD 3. Other Gantries are also proposed due to expansion.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


Truck loading system :

In each Gantry, there is one officer to handle all operations. This officer is called ‗Gantry Officer‘. ‗Gantry Log Book‘ is maintained at each Gantry to record all information about loading. This information is recorded from Filling Authorization Note (FAN). Gantry log book :

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


The Average time taken at Gantry is 35 minutes.

Out Gate Office :

Out Gate Office is the last place after the TTs have been loaded. Here, before going out side of the refinery, the driver parks the truck near by road and goes to Out Gate Office with Invoice / Bill, Indent and FAN.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


The Officer, sitting at Out Gate Office do the checking as following: 1) Check TT Number 2) Check Products and its quantity in Invoice / Bill and Indent both. 3) Check Invoice No. After all these procedures, Essar‘s bill‘s copies and FAN are kept in Out Gate Office and Company‘s (IOCL, HPCL, BPCL) Indent / bill is given to TT driver / cleaner by stamping on it. At last, TTs are made ‗Out from Vehicle Tracking System‘ and then allowed to go outside the refinery. The average time taken at Out Gate Office is 3 minutes.

Here, Total Time 128 Min and 29 Sec includes time from Time Office to Out gate.

Existing System:

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


[A] NE Gate: ‖Security Checking:

As we are supplying the most explosive and valuable products, it is
very necessary for the company to maintain full security checking to avoid any uncontrollable circumstances. Security Checking helps to

Maintain and precede the regular procedure easily.
‖Online Tracking of TTs: Essar Oil Ltd. Uses vehicle Tracking System (VTS) to track any TTs at any stage and at any time. Due to this we have been able to control all the TTs and manage daily turn over of 700 TTs approximately. It is also useful to prevent any misconduct or malpractices into the company

Premises during the loading process.
‖Records of drivers / khalasis and TTs are maintained: At the time of entering into the NE Gate, it is the first and primary activity to enter the TTs into the Vehicle Tracking System (VTS). At this time, information like driver‘s name, khalasis‘ name, TT Number, etc. are Recorded. so that, it is very easy to judge responsibility at the time of any

critical situation.
[B] Physical Checking for Safety: It is necessary to know that the vehicle that has come for loading is completely fit to load the respective product, so any accident can be

Avoided from the scratch.
[C] Time Office: Planning and management of information of TTs: Time office does very complex work that is planning the dispatch on the bases of TT capacity and availability of product as well as gantry for the loading. It crates balance between all stages of loading process and avoids unnecessary rush of TTs at a single stage.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


Maintains flow of information: Time office does the work of entering TTs into Terminal Automation System (TAS) and maintaining the flow of information Throughout the process using SAP system. [D] Gantry: Essar Oil has fully automated gantry system which reduces manpower cost and at the same times makes loading system more efficient and


[A] NE Gate: ‖Wastage of Time and Manpower: At NE gate physical checking of all documents related to driver and TTs are checked. This process creates unnecessary wastage of time and manpower as this process can be avoided by maintaining database of Drivers and TTs and making the whole system automated so it will tack Optimum time and will be worth full for the company.

‖ less utilization of Resources than their capacity : In 2008- 09 only 1179 Rail rakes has been dispatch through two birth of rail Gantry. Generally railway authority gives 6 hours to fulfill the rakes and send it back. And dispatch area takes maximum of 4 hours to fulfill it. Gantries are working 24*7. in each Rake there are 5 tankers with different capacity , different

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


type & different demand. So we can say that per rail birth only 118 trains dispatch which takes maximum of 708 hours means 1 or 1.5 month with 20 hours of working. In full year they have work only of 1 to 1.5 month and remaining of months they have just waste the Resources.

1. We have two berths with service of only Rail with just 10 loading pipes. We can do multi purpose Pipes. Like we can have FO & HSD both at 1 point with different pipes so whenever tankers with same requirement comes we should not wait for filling up of one and than other. So we can fulfill the requirements of train less than 4 hours and can load more & more trains. With this change we can save our time at loading of rail rakes and utilize more & more of resources. 2. As we visit the Gantries and look at their system all the procedure of filling the tankers are handled through control room. At both the road & rail Gantry for accounting and receipt SAP is used. In this software fully pre generated challan comes out with all the detail of demand, purchaser, qty, product, time and many more things.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


3. We can change the some variable of SAP with the help of IT Department and make Rail Gantry as multi-purposed Gantry. After this we can fulfill the demand of trucks also at the time where there is no train on rail gantry. For that we just have to construct road parallel to railway tracks and make some change in SAP. With these thing now we should not establish new road gantry and the cost of that gantry can be saved and use at other place. We can also control on the time of waiting of truck at parking nearly 35 minutes. And by this we can give full satisfaction to our customer.

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


Cost – Benefit Analysis
For Expansion of capacity of Essar oil , VOTL also has to increase the capacity of transportation to 16.5 from 13.5. for expansion project these all things must be needed. PART - I:- TANK AREA PART – II:- POWER PLANT PART – III:- SEA WATER COOLING TOWER & RETURN RESERVOIR PART – IV:- PROCESS AREA – ISOM & DHDT HALF PORTION WEST SIDE PART – V:- ARU UNIT SOUTH SIDE PART – VI:- DCU – 1, DCU – 2, ESSAR HOUSE AND NARMADA RESERVOIR PART – VII:- ETP AREA, COOLING TOWER AND WEST SIDE COOLING TOWER, HMU AREA, N2 PLANT AREA PART – VIII: - REMAINING BOREHOLES FOR D AND B BLOCK. PART – IX: - LPG AND DESPATCH AREA Here for comparison we are calculating only for dispatch area that is for gantry. We are doing cost-benefit analysis of new road gantry and our recommendation of using rail gantry as multy purpose.

Additional gantry
Land for construction: Construction: Piping : Pumps & Machinery : IT department: Extra man power: Total 45 crore 9 crore 23 crore 46 crore 12 crore 1 crore (per year) 136 crore

For additional gantry service with 8 bays VOTL can have 8 filling station with same product.

For changing in SAP: Construction of road: Addition of pipes & pumps: 5 crore 9 crore 33 crore

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.



47 crore

Conclusion of this analysis of costing of two alternatives gives the perfect answer for increasing the capacity of VOTL. we can see that when we made new gantry it have all the capital cost which we mention earlier and additionally it have expense of additional staff salary, depreciation of gantry , expense of safety measures and many more. Instead of this we can see that VOTL is not using their Rail gantry as per their capacity. They uses very less just 1179 rakes (1179/5 =236 trains).it simply means 1 train at 1.5 day. But instead of this VOTL has dispatch 8 trains per day maximum. Even though we don’t compare with maximum capacity they must have minimum 3 to 4 trains per day.

So we can say that our alternative is better than expansion of new gantry.

Finance Project “Ratio Analysis”

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


Meaning & Utility of Ratio analysis & Financial Statement
Meaning of Ratio Analysis: Ratio analysis is a widely used tool of financial analysis. It is defined as the systematic uses of ratio to interpret the financial statement so that strength & weakness of a firm as well as its historical performance & current financial condition can be determined. Utilities: (1) Ratio analysis helps to appraise the firm in term of their profitability & efficiency of performance, either individually or in relation to these of other firms in the same industry. Proper Comparison of ratios may revel where a firm is placed as compared with earlier period or in comprise with other firms in the same industries. Ratio analysis is one of the best possible techniques available to the management to impact the basic function the planning & control. Ratio’s calculated on the basis of historical financial statement may be good assistant to predict the future.

RATIOS of VOTL Current Ratio :
The current ratio is the ratio of total current assets to total current liabilities. It is calculated by dividing current assets by current liabilities. This most widely used ratio is also known as ‘Working Capital Ratio’ as it is a measured of working capital available at a particular time. It is measure of sort-term financial strength of the business and shows weather the business will be able to meet its current liability, as and when they mature. Remember that a liability which will mature within a period of twelve months is a current liability at the business and shows weather the business will be able to meet its current liability, as and when they mature. Remember that a liability which will mature within a period of twelve months is a current liability. Formula: Current Ratio = Current Assets Current Liability Particulars Current Assets Current liability Current Ratio

2009 2251547900 2738680472 0.8221

1 0 2008 2009

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


Interpretation: The relationship between current assets and current liability it is use to judge the liquidity position of company. And ideal current ratio is 2:1.It is generally believed that 2:1 ratio shows a comfortable working capital position i.e. the current assets should be twice the current liabilities. However, this rule should not be taken as a hard and fast rule, because a ratio which is satisfactory for one business may not be satisfactory for the other. There may be instances when an enterprise may function satisfactorily even with a current ratio of one to one or less and some enterprises required much higher ratio than 2 to 1. If the amount of stock-in-trade is unduly large, then the 2 to 1 ratio may not be satisfactory. so, the current liability must be reduced if possible. And due to increase in current liability current ratio is decreased to 0.8221 and it is worst situation for the company, the ratio must be 2:1.and the reason of that is due to expansion and with this the capital expenditure is so increased upto 2510061638 rs. From 323886592.

Acid Test Ratio :
Quick ratio shows that one defect of the current ratio is that it fails to convey any information on the composition of the current assets of a firm. A rupee of cash is considered equivalent to a rupee of inventory or receivable. But it is not so. A rupee of cash is more readily available to meet current obligations than a rupee of, say, inventory. This empires the usefulness of the current ratio. The acid-test ratio because is a measure of liquidity designed to overcome this defect of the current ratio. It is often referred to as quick ratio because it is a measurement of a firm’s ability to convert its current assets quickly into cash in order to meet its current liability. Thus, it is a measure of quick or acid liquidity. The acid-test ratio is the ratio between current assets – inventory and current liability and is calculated by dividing the (CA-Inventory) by the current liability.

Formula: Quick Ratio (Acid-test ratio) = (Current Assets – Inventory) Current Liability Table of Quick Ratio: Particulars Quick Assets (In Rs.) 2008 2009

2008 2009


Interpretation:This ratio measured that the absolute liquidity may be obtained by comparing only cash and bank balance as well as readily marketable and it is satisfactory if the ratio is 0.5 : 1.This ratio calculated to know that weather the firm will be able to pay its current liabilities immediately ? Also it is used analysis position of a company into detail. Due to increase in current liability this ratio is decreases and another reason for this the money is blocked more in inventory than the previous.

Gross Profit Ratio :
Gross profit ratio expressing relationship between (Net Sales – Cost of Good Sold) earned to Net Sales. It is a useful indication of the profitability of business. Gross Profit ratio is the results of prices, sales volume and costs. A Change in the Sales can be brought about by changes in any of these factors. The Gross Profit Ratio represents the limit beyond which fall in sales price are outside the tolerance limit. Further the Gross Profit Ratio can also be used in determining the extent of loss caused by theft, spoilage, damage and so on in the case of those firms which fallow the policy of fixed gross profit ratio in pricing their products.

Interpretation:Gross Profit Ratio of the company for two year consecutive years is 77.85%and 83.07% respectively. As the ratio is better in both the two years it shows that there is ability of the management to improve gross profit ratio day by day.

Net Profit Ratio :
Net profit ratio is measure the relationship between net profit and net sales. The objective is to determine the overall profitability due to various factors such as operational efficiency and trading on equity. The net profit ratio is indicative of management’s ability

Vadinar Oil terminal Ltd.


to operate the business with sufficient success not only to recover from revenues of the period, the cost of merchandise or services, the expenses of operating the business and the cost of the borrowed funds, but also to leave a margin of reasonable compensation to the owners for providing their capital at risk. The ratio of net profit to sales essentially expresses the cost price effectiveness of the operation.

Formula: Net Profit Ratio = Profit After Tax x 100 Net Sales ( In Rs.) 2008 2009 (559121067) (1438817394)

Table of Net Profit Ratio :-

Profit After Tax

Interpretation : Net ratio is computed on the basis of net profit earned from operation of business and non-operating expenses and incomes are excluded. E.g. income from investments of surplus funds of business is non-operating income and so it is to be excluded. Loss on sale of asset is non-trading loss and it is not taken into account. Generally, tax is deducted from profit while calculating this ratio. Although near about 83% and 77% gross profit margin, the company is in loss due to higher interest paid to the depositors and other financial institutions. So, net profit ratio can’t be found out due to loss in the company.

Operating Ratio :
Operating ratio shows the efficiency of the management. This ratio is to be measured by 1-Operating profit ratio. The higher the ratio, the less will be the profit available to proprietors. The lesser the ratio, the high will be the profit available to proprietors. This ratio is also usually expressed as a percentage. Operating ratio show about how any expenses during the year for making more profit in the firm.

The Return on Capital Employed is the second type of ROI. It is similar to the ROA except in one respect. Here the profits are related to the total capital employed. The term capital employed refers to long-term funds supplied by the creditors and owners of the firm. It can be computed in two ways. First, it is equal to non-current liabilities plus owners’ equity. Alternatively, it is equivalent to net working capital plus fixed assets. Thus, the capital employed basis provides a test of profitability related to the sources of long-term funds. A comparison of this ratio with similar firms, with the industry average and over time would provide sufficient insight into how efficiently the long-term funds of owners and creditors are being used. The higher the ratio, the more efficient is the use of capital employed.

The higher this ratio, it shows that with less amount of investment in total assets, the business has a capacity to sell more and as such its profitability is also more. While using this ratio, some care must be taken just like above mentioned fixed assets ratio. If the assets are very old and more depreciation has been deducted, then the turnover seems to be more which in fact does not show more efficiency. Formula: Total Assets Turnover Ratio = Net Sales .

Conclusion :
Finally I can Say that it’s my great fortune that I can work in Vadinar Oil Terminal Ltd. That is subsidiary of Essar Shipping, Port and Logistics. From VOTL I can learn many things like How corporate world work?, Some Financial Aspects & also how they operate such a big company so nicely. Here I can also learn MIS of VOTL that is used for transportation of tankers, trains, pipes & marine. From Financial ratio analysis we can say that VOTL is newly established subsidiary of ESOLL is working under loss due to highly paid interest to their holding / sister companies only. Still in comparison to 2008 it’s better in 2009. From Asset turn over ratio we can found out that company can do turn over only 10 % (approx) of total turn-over. From operation project we can say that VOTL is not working under full utilization of their assets. But all the Findings are due to the Reason that VOTL is newly established. And the other Reason is that VOTL is working only for their holding company. So, it has to be dependent on holding company. But as per my suggestion VOTL should also work for other companies for more utilization of resources.
