Gas pipeline to boost natgrid

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) today granted autho­risation to the State Government-controlled Gujarat State Petronet Ltd-led consortium for constructing the Mallavaram (Andhra Pradesh)-Vijaipur (Madhra Pradesh); Mehsana (Gujarat)-Bhatinda (Punjab) and Bhatinda-Srinagar (J&K) trunk pipeline for carrying natural gas.

GSPL owns a controlling 52 per cent stake in the consortium with IOC (26 per cent), BPCL (11 per cent) and HPCL (11 per cent). Overall, the con­sortium will lay nearly 4,000 km of Pipeline at an estimated investment of Rs 12,500 crore.

GSPL believes the three pipelines together will give a reasonable shape to the proposed national gas grid.

The Mallavaram-Bhopal (MP)­-Bhilwara (Rajasthan)-Vij­a­i­­pur pipeline will connect the gas bearing Krishna-Godavari basin in Andhra Pradesh with consumption centres in Central India.
