 Stepping up the momentum for construction of the Jagdishpur-Haldia and Bokaro-Dhamra natural gas pipeline (JHBDPL) and Barauni – Guwahati Pipeline (BGPL) pipeline, GAIL (India) has winded up finalising awards for Rs 10,500 crore contracts for pipe supply and laying of the integrated 3,400 km-long project.

 
GAIL has placed an order worth Rs 475 crore for steel line pipes of around 280 km to provide pipeline connectivity from Durgapur to Haldia including spur line to Kolkata. Till date, the company has committed over Rs 12,500 crore for the project.
 
The pipeline has already reached Barauni and GAIL is ready for supplying gas to refinery and upcoming fertilizer plant. The pipeline also supplies Natural Gas for Patna city gas distribution network (CGD). This is a major milestone towards providing green fuel to eastern part of the country. The work for balance portion is going on in full swing and is scheduled to be completed by December 2021 in a phased manner. The construction work of Dobhi–Durgapur pipeline section is likely to be completed by December 2019 for supplying gas to Matix Fertilizers, Durgapur in West Bengal.
 
GAIL is currently executing around 5,500 km of pipeline related projects for Rs 25,000 crore to provide gas supply largely to areas of eastern and southern parts of the country. Another 1,400 km of pipeline involving capex of Rs 7,000 crore is under evaluation which is targeted to be completed by 2023. These pipeline projects by GAIL will be part of the National Gas Grid providing Natural Gas to areas hitherto untouched by the green fuel.
