The gross refining margin (GRM) during the first quarter of fiscal 2019-2020 was $4.69 per barrel as compared to $10.21 per barrel in the corresponding quarter of the previous financial year.”

GRM is a measure of the gain per barrel of crude oil processed by the refiner. The GRM, excluding inventory gain/loss and price lag for the quarter under review, is $2.27 a barrel as compared to $5.18 a barrel in the same quarter of the previous year, a company statement said.
