GAIL Revives $4-Bn Plan To Lay Pipelines
In line with government’s plan to build a national gas grid, state-run GAIL (India) has revived pipeline projects worth $4 billion. These projects had been put on the back burner in absence of enough consumers. “GAIL is implementing five natural gas pipelines. In addition, GAIL will be augmenting the capacities of two existing pipelines. The total length of the new pipelines will be around 5,000 km and the estimated investment on these would be $4 billion. When these pipelines are commissioned, the capacity is expected to increase from 206 mmscmd at present to around 300 mmscmd,” a senior company official told.
