India is likely to remain as one of the major countries to drive Asia’s new-build trunk / transmission pipeline additions, contributing about 37% of the region’s oil and gas pipelines projects count by 2026, says GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.
GlobalData’s latest report, New Build Trunk-Transmission Pipelines Projects Analytics and Forecast by Project Type, Regions, Countries, Development Stage, and Cost 2022-2026, reveals that out of 57 projects to commence operations by 2026 in India, gas pipelines projects would be at 30, product pipelines would be at 23, and oil pipelines at four.
Sudarshini Ennelli, Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “India is striving to develop a robust transmission pipeline infrastructure for greater transport of oil and gas to meet the ever-growing demand for energy.”
The Kandla–Gorakhpur product pipeline is one of the key projects with a length of 2,809 km and costing US$1.4bn. The LPG pipeline would run from Kandla port in Gujarat state to Gorakhpur in the Uttar Pradesh state. The pipeline project would serve LPG bottling plants in the states of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh and meets growing demand for the commodity.
The Jagdishpur–Haldia Phase II gas pipeline is also one of the key projects with a length of 1,900 km and estimated at US$1.4bn. The pipeline would be operated by GAIL covering the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, and West Bengal. The pipeline project aims to connect India’s eastern region with national gas network catering to the needs of domestic and industrial consumers.
