The Central government’s Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) has approved the Indian Oil Corporation’s (IOC) Ennore-Kancheepuram underground pipeline project in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

The 120 km pipeline will act as a feeder line for the upcoming city gas grid distribution (CGD) project, which aims at replacing LPG cylinders with piped natural gas (CNG) supply. The project is valued at Rs 849 crore.

Earlier in 2019, IOC started operations along Ennore-Manali pipeline project. Industries like the Chennai Petroleum Corporation, Madras Fertilizers and Tamil Nadu Petroproducts have started receiving gas through these pipes.

As per the project design, 30 inch pipelines will be laid from Ennore LNG Terminal situated inside Kamarajar Port, Ennore to Salavakkam Village in Kancheepuram via Ponneri and Uthukottai. Natural gas imported at the terminal will be transported to gas consumers along this route, including Hyundai Motors and Saint Gobain near Sriperumbudur.
