In a notable development, Vasai taluka received its first-ever connection fitted with pipe natural gas (PNG) in a Vasai residential complex on February 23, 2021. Government representatives had been writing to the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board regarding the provision of a network of compressed natural gas and PNG in the Vasai, Virar, Palghar and other areas of the district since 2012.

A network of PNG pipelines is being laid and soon the entire district is expected to have access to natural gas. PNG is being preferred over liquified petroleum gas as it is more economical, provides better safety and facilitates uninterrupted supply.
