Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: GAIL (India) has commenced natural gas supplies to the Trombay region near Mumbai through its Dahej-Uran pipeline. The 40-km line to Trombay is one of the several spur links connecting GAIL’s main Dahej-Uran (DUPL) and Dabhol-Panvel (DPPL) pipelines to consumers, according to an official release here.

GAIL would be transporting gas from different supply sources such as Panna-Mukta and Tapti fields through DUPL and DPPL.

Other gas supply sources include re-gassified-LNG from Dahej and Hazira terminals in Gujarat and Reliance Industries’s Eastern offshore gas.

The Dabhol LNG terminal will also be a source when it gets completed in 2010. GAIL is in the process of connecting a number of other consumers in the Trombay region like RCF by next month.
