Operating 12,500 kms of natural gas pipeline network in India, the Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) has projects ranging from Indradhanush North East Gas Grid to 2,655-km gas pipeline project from Jagdishpur in Uttar Pradesh to Haldia in West Bengal. GAIL will be completing the section connecting Bokaro and Angul in Odisha of the Urja Ganga by March 2022. Further, the pipeline extension to Guwahati would take place by laying an additional 729-km line from Barauni in Bihar. At Guwahati, the extension will interconnect with the upcoming 1,500-km ‘Indradhanush’ pipeline network. While Barauni will be connected with Guwahati by June 2023, GAIL also plans on laying a 750-km Srikakulam-Angul natural gas pipeline.
