India: Court gives nod for Gail’s Kochi LNG pipeline

The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave the green light to GAIL India to resume works on its Kochi-Mangalore natural gas pipeline project in Tamil Nadu.

The pipeline will connect Petronet’s Kochi LNG terminal to industries in the States of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

The Kochi LNG terminal has been running at a very low capacity utilization due to non-availability of a pipeline network.

Land acquisition issues and opposition by farmers and the TN government had disrupted the construction of the Kochi-Kuttanad-Bengaluru-Mangalore gas pipeline project.

GAIL will work in close coordination with the Government of Tamil Nadu to restart the pipeline laying work of the 310 km long stretch passing through the state of Tamil Nadu,” the company said in a statement on Tuesday.
