Barauni- Guwahati pipeline likely to provide gas in Guwahati by December

Gas supply in Guwahati is likely to commence by December 2023 via Barauni- Guwahati natural gas pipeline. It would link the state of Assam with the national gas grid. The Barauni- Guwahati natural gas pipeline, being developed by GAIL (India) Limited under the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga project, involves laying of 729 km lomg natural gas pipeline between Barauni and Guwahati in the states of Bihar and Assam, respectively, which will link the north- eastern part of the country with the national grid to meet increasing fuel needs of households and factories in the region.
