GAIL (India) may commission RLNG pipeline by March 2020

December 12, 2019
GAIL (India) which is executing the 438 km Kochi-Koottanad-Mangaluru re-gasified liquefied natural gas (RLNG) pipeline intends to commission it by March 2020.
The RLNG supply will begin thereafter to industries. GAIL (India) could not meet the earlier deadline of September 2018 following difficulties faced in crossing Chandragiri river in Kasargod district of Kerala and Netravathi river in Dakshina Kannada district.

The company awarded the contract to lay the 111 km pipeline in North Kerala and Karnataka at a cost of Rs 160 crore in August 2017. Work on crossing the Netravathi river between Innoli and Arkula will be completed by 15 January 2020.

Work on RLNG Terminal is underway on the Arkula side to pump gas towards Malavoor and further towards the terminal near MCF. Kochi is already deriving the benefits of clean fuel. However, the city gas distribution (CGD) in Mangaluru along with CNG as auto fuel will take time as distribution pipelines have to be laid across the city by the contractor.

The pipeline is designed to transport 16 MCM of RLNG with Kochi’s demand for five MCM and Mangaluru industries assured demand for four MCM.
