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