Trafigura will deliver 1 MMbbl of Mars crude from the US Gulf of Mexico to BORL on Nov. 16 to 25, they said.

BORL is likely the third Indian oil refiner, after Indian Oil Corp and Bharat Petroleum Corp, to import US crude.

Hindustan Petroleum Corp has also said it plans to buy US crude in the next few months.
