GAIL To Make Investment For Construction Of Natural Gas & CNG Pipelines 

Khabar India , Jan 10, 2019

GAIL (India) Limited, the largest state-owned natural gas processing and distribution company, is all set to make a fresh investment of Rs 5,000 crore for the construction of pipelines to supply gas and CNG in Bengal in the next 5-6 years. The project is being executed as a part of Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga Pipeline Project. A 555 km long pipeline will pass through eight districts in the state, such as Purulia, Bankura, Burdwan, Nadia, Hooghly, Howrah, East Midnapore and North 24-Parganas.

S Bairagi, CGM (Marketing), GAIL, was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an interactive session on ‘Gas Industry in West Bengal’, organised by FICCI at a city hotel on Wednesday. The project is expected to be completed up to Durgapur within July 2019, while it would be done up to Kolkata within July 2020. Gas pipeline will then go up to Haldia in East Midnapore. The projects will be done in various phases. Further project activities for execution of pipeline in Bengal up to Haldia and city gas distribution in Kolkata are also expected to commence shortly. The project will usher industrial development in the eastern part of the country by supplying environmentally clean natural gas to fertiliser and power plants, refineries, steel plants and other industries.
