GAIL (India) Limited has awarded contracts for the purchase of 616 km of line pipe worth ₹1,100 crore for the Barauni-Guwahati pipeline.

A company statement said that this fast tracks the project execution of the 729 km feeder line linking the entire North-East region with the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga pipeline network.

The award of the contract will ensure commencement of spurline laying activities of the Barauni-Guwahati pipeline from December 2018. The under construction pipeline will connect the upcoming ‘Indradhanush’ gas grid network which is being developed by GAIL along with joint venture partners Indian Oil Corp (IOC), Oil India Ltd, Numaligarh Refineries Ltd (NRL) and Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) to provide uninterrupted supply of natural gas across all the North Eastern States, the statement added.

Work across India’s single largest pipeline spanning 3,400 km under Jagadishpur-Haldia-Bokaro-Dhamra project is progressing as per schedule. Physical progress under phase-1 of the flagship project is 92 per cent complete and is expected to be completed within next two months, whereas the rest including the additional section under Barauni-Guwahati spurline are lined up for sequential completion by December 2021.
