Paonta Sahib and Kalaamb industrial areas in Sirmaur district of Himachal Pradesh will soon be connected by a compressed natural gas (CNG) and piped natural gas (PNG) pipeline. Indian Oil Adani Gas Private Limited (IOAGPL) recently conducted a survey in Kalaamb and Paonta Sahib and the work on laying the pipeline is expected to commence soon. The site for the CNG station at Badripur in Paonta Sahib has also been finalised and the station is expected to be commissioned by March-end.

The Union Government has identified three districts of Himachal Pradesh namely, Solan, Sirmaur and Una, for development of CNG and PNG infrastructure. IOAGPL has received in-principle approval for laying CNG and PNG pipelines in these districts.
