Bitumen is exceptionally difficult to extract, with most processes requiring some level of physical mining as opposed to pump extraction. Bitumen crude is found impregnated in sedimentary rock, much of which is located in Canada. This rock is often referred to as “oil sand” or “tar sand.” The company imports and distributes these products throughout the country through its own office and associates present in different parts of the country.
Ratan International Pvt. Ltd under the umbrella of Shivam groups has been appointed as distributor in Nepal of Lanka IOC for distribution of bitumen in Nepal.
