The Andhra Pradesh government is planning to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Andhra Pradesh Gas Distribution Corporation (APGDC) Limited for supplying piped LPG to Mori village in East Godavari district.
More than 1,100 households will get cooking gas supply through pipeline. The project would be completed soon, said East Godavari District Collector H Arun Kumar, who visited Mori village and interacted with the villagers.
´Gas wells were located in Ponnamanda village, which was very near to Mori. Piped gas supply will reduce cost and is safer than using refilled LPG,´ the Collector said. ONGC and GAIL, which were operating in the region along the coast in many places, were maintaining wells in the Krishna-Godavari (KG) basin.
