GAIL, GSPL Said to be in a Spar Over ONGC Gas Trans­port

The Economic Times - - Economy: Macro, Micro & More -

New Delhi: A fight has bro­ken out be­tween state-owned gas util­ity GAIL In­dia and Gu­jarat gov­ern­ment en­tity GSPL over who should trans­port nat­u­ral gas ONGC will pro­duce from its KG basin gas fields.

While GAIL wants to lay a small 13.6-km line from Odalarevu in AP — the land­fall point of ONGC’s Bay of Ben­gal gas — to con­nect to its ex­ist­ing pipe­line grid in the re­gion, GSPL In­dia Transco wants to lay a 50-km line to take the gas to its pro­posed Mallavaram-Bhopal-Bhilwara- Vi­jaipur cross coun­try pipe­line (MBBVPL).

The two com­pa­nies have filed ap­pli­ca­tions be­fore the sec­toral reg­u­la­tor PNGRB for au­tho­ri­sa­tion for lay­ing the pipe­lines, known as tie-in lines that con­nect a gas source with main pipe­line. — PTI
