Cross-Border Fuel Pipeline Project to Adopt HDD Tech

Date : Aug 13, 2018

Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) and Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) have decided to adopt the Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) technology to lay pipes beneath a few encroachments and other natural obstructions along the planned Motihari-Amlekhgunj Petroleum Pipeline Project, source. Though a majority of public and private encroachments along the planned route of the cross-border fuel pipeline project have been cleared and the pipe laying process has already begun, a few encroachments like temples and permanent buildings and natural obstructions like rivers have been affecting the pipe-laying process.


Hence, both NOC and IOC have decided to adopt HDD technology in laying pipes along such sections, which measures almost two kilometres.
