GSPL pipeline commissioned

Our Bureau


GUJARAT State Petronet Ltd (GSPL) has commissioned the Rs 30-crore, 25-km Mora-Utran pipeline which will soon be used to carry gas to the Gujarat Electricity Board's (GEB) Utran power station. The present contractual obligation between GSPL and GEB is to carry 2.25 lakh MMSCM/day gas to Utran. The new outlet is scheduled to generate a daily revenue of Rs 2.5 lakh for GSPL.

This 12-inch pipeline, which has a capacity to carry of 1.5 MMSCM gas per day, would also be used for transportation of LNG to other major consumers in that area from the various LNG terminals that are coming up in south Gujarat.

With the completion of this section, GSPL has successfully commissioned 85 km of pipeline. The completed sections, includes Hazira-Mora (14 km), Amboli-Dahej (45 km) and Mora-Utran (25 km). Another 40 km stretch of pipeline - Bhadbhut-Paguthan (30 km) and Suvali-Mora (10 km) is nearing completion.

Currently, the GSPL is working on another 200 km of pipeline network including the Paguthan-Vadodara stretch and the Vadodara-Ahmedabad-Kalol line. This is scheduled for completion in the next 12 to 18 months.
