Darshan Hiranandani, CEO, HEPL said that in order to facilitate connectivity of the proposed FSRU to gas markets, HEPL had already submitted an expression of interest to the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board for laying of a 705 km natural gas pipeline, which will extend from Paradip in Odisha to Contai in West Bengal to Dattapulia on the India-Bangladesh border.
