The Government of Tamil Nadu (GoTN) released a detailed policy and appointed the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation Limited (TIDCO) as nodal agency to speed up the supply of piped natural gas (PNG) across the state. 

Currently, only a few households have PNG connection in Nagapattinam district. Torrent Gas Chennai Private Limited is likely to provide infrastructure for 3.3 million domestic connections in Chennai and Tiruvallur and 222 compressed natural gas (CNG) retail outlets in Chengalpet and Kancheepuram. Besides, AG&P Pratham is likely to provide 0.11 million domestic connections.
