 Gas authority of India limited (GAIL) has sought support from the Uttar Pradesh government for expeditious implementation of piped natural gas (PNG) connectivity and compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicular conversions at several places in the state.

The Maharatna PSU has a long-standing partnership with UP and operates gas based petrochemical complex at Pata in Auraiya district, at an investment over Rs 10,000 crore. It also supports supplies of natural gas to refinery and fertiliser units in addition to fuelling glass industry in Agra-Ferozabad.
 
Assuring the enterprise of the government’s support in ensuring crucial permissions for expediting Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga pipeline and also the Varanasi city gas projects, UP chief secretary Rajive Kumar asked the district magistrates and commissioners to facilitate smooth and timely execution of capital investments under the natural gas projects at Rs 4000 crore for over 800 km trunk pipeline network scheduled to be completed 2018-19 and Rs 1000 crore per annum for city gas development in various cities.
 
GAIL, CMD, BC Tripathi stressed on the need for expeditious grant of right of way and other permissions for completing the energy highway and CGD projects of national importance. Tripathi said that Varanasi CGD project is progressing satisfactorily and with few more permissions made available in the next couple of days, commissioning of the city gas network could be targeted for December this year. The pipeline construction to Gorakhpur is scheduled for completion by July, 2018.
