 Maharatna enterprise GAIL has said that despite facing initial hurdles, the Kerala stretch of the Kochi – Koottanad – Mangaluru-Bengaluru pipeline project will gain impetus with commencement of construction work.

The pipeline project will form part of the National Gas Grid (NGG) and will go a long way in fulfilling the vision of the centre towards building a gas based economy.
 
The construction activities are in full swing and GAIL has awarded contracts for pipeline laying works of the remaining section of 111 km stretch falling in Malappuram, Kannur and Kasargod districts at a cost of approximately Rs 160 crore.
 
As part of phase-II of the project, the pipeline section from Kochi-Koottanad (in Kerala) to Mangaluru (in Karnataka) section of 438 km is being executed.
 
Chairman and managing director, GAIL, B C Tripathi, said: “GAIL is commencing activities in the remaining 111 km stretch of the pipeline. The project activities in 100 percent of the pipe length will gather full momentum after the monsoon. With the continued support of the state government and the people at large, GAIL is confident of completing the entire Kochi – Koottanad – Mangaluru Pipeline by December 2018.”
 
The Kochi – Koottanad – Mangaluru Pipeline will give a major economic boost to Kerala by way of supplying environmental friendly industrial development.
