Mahanagar Gas Limited lays pipeline for supply to Mumbai.


A natural gas pipeline has been laid bLike other world class cities, Mumbai will soon have its own gas pipelines etween Andheri and Dahisar by Mahanagar Gas Limited(MGL). The supply of piped cooking gas by MGL is part of the project envisaged by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, which has allocated 1.5 MMSCMD of natural gas to the Maharashtra government for distribution in Mumbai.

The prime aim of this Rs 1000-crore project is to substitute other fuels with natural gas in accordance with internationally recognised standards. The project is designed to provide piped natural gas to around 6 lakh homes, 125 industrial consumers, 4500 commercial consumers and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to around 25, 000 vehicles including 15,000 taxis, in Mumbai.

MGL is currently laying a basic grid of steel pipeline network of around 115 kilometres and a distribution of polythene network of about 3000 kilometres, which is expected to be complete by 2001. Natural gas from Mumbai High is supplied to Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) via Uran and channelised to Mumbai by steel pipelines. Further, this gas flows through polyethylene pipes to residential areas. The piped cooking gas supplied by MGL is not only cheaper but even safer, more user and eco-friendly than LPG.

To date, MGL has laid 56 kilometres long steel pipelines and 448 kilometres long polyethylene pipe lines, for supply of natural gas. In addition, MGL has created an infrastructure of 1,60,000 households in various areas in Mumbai. It also supplies gas to around 291 commercial establishments and 24 industries.

Around 16,34,820 BEST buses and 2-wheelers and 3-wheelers are running on CNG, supplied by the 21 retail outlets operating in the city. Daily, on an average around 72,000 kilogram of CNG is consumed by the vehicles and thereby the level of vehicular pollution has reduced by 72 percent
