India to build diesel, gas pipelines to Bangladesh

PTI New Delhi | Updated on January 15, 2018

India will build pipelines to carry diesel and natural gas to Bangladesh as the world’s third largest energy consumer looks to strengthen ties with the neighbour.

While a 131-km pipeline will be laid from from Siliguri in West Bengal to Parbatipur in northern Bangladesh to transport diesel, a line from Dattapulia in West Bengal will take natural gas to Khulna, the third-largest city of Bangladesh.

Oil Secretary KD Tripathi said the pipelines are part of a non-binding Framework of Understanding which India will enter into with Bangladesh for cooperation in the hydrocarbon sector.
