In a bid to meet the additional demand for compressed natural gas (CNG), Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) is planning to develop better city gas distribution (CGD) infrastructure. At present, there are 15 CNG stations operated by IGL with sale volumes more than 100,000 kg fuel per day in Gurugram. The IGL network’s current installed capacity in Gurugram is enough to meet an additional 50 per cent demand for CNG. Further, IGL is working towards augmenting its retail infrastructure in Gurugram with five more CNG stations. In addition to this, the compression capacity at the existing CNG stations is being enhanced to cater to the increasing demand for CNG.
In another important development, IGL’s CNG station at Kohand in district Karnal, Haryana has commenced operations on July 20, 2022. The CNG station is located on NH-44 and will cater to thousands of CNG customers passing through the National Highway.
IGL, a joint venture of GAIL (India) Limited and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, is already engaged in supplying CNG and piped natural gas in Delhi, Gautam Budh Nagar, Ghaziabad, Rewari and Gurugram.
