Kochi gas supply will be extended to the whole district – New Indian Express




from Express News Service

KOCHI: The government has decided to implement the city gas supply scheme in all the taluks of Ernakulam district. Currently, the natural gas pipeline is available from Karingachira through Kundannoor and Edappally to Aluva. It has now been decided to extend the supply to Angamaly, Perumbavoor and Kolenchery as well. Work on the same has begun in all six municipalities.

The Secretary General of the Department of Local Self-Government gave instructions in this regard to local authorities during a video conference meeting held on Saturday which was chaired by County Development Officer Afzana Parveen.

Currently, 2,500 houses in Thrikkakara municipality have benefited from the scheme. Plumbing work on 1,500 homes has also been completed. In addition to nine CNG stations, work is underway on Wellingdon Island, Kalady, Perumbavoor and Poothottam. Municipalities that have not been allowed to implement the project have been instructed to decide within 21 days.

Most municipalities opposed digging roads for the project. The heads of the local bodies raised their concerns about the re-laying of the roads after they had dug for the laying of the pipes.

They also complained that even the newly built roads were cut for laying pipes and left without proper restoration. At the meeting, local authorities assured that Indian Oil-Adani Gas Pvt Ltd (IOAGPL), which is implementing the project, will carry out the reconstruction work. Municipalities demanded that once the pipes are laid, the roads should be temporarily filled within two days and all restoration work should be completed in another 30 days. The implementing agency has agreed to this request, thus reaching a consensus with local authorities.

With the implementation of the scheme, natural gas will be available to every household at all times without interruption. In addition to domestic customers, CNG vehicles, commercial and industrial customers will also benefit from the scheme. Alsosht is also safer to use as the gas density is much lower than that of other cooking gases.

Natural gas reaches the GAIL gas pipeline from the Petronet LNG terminal in Puthuvype. GAIL supplies natural gas to the IOAGPL pipeline from the valve station in Kalamassery. The IOAGPL then supplies gas to customers through steel or MDPE pipelines. In Kerala, the IOAGPL received permission to supply natural gas to the Ernakulam district in the fourth round of bids of the Oil and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB). The Board approved gas supplies from the IOAGPL to Thrissur, Palakkad, Malappuram, Kannur, Kasaragod, Kozhikode and Wayanad in the ninth round of bids.


Like water and electricity bills, gas bills must be paid according to meter reading based on usage
For domestic customers, the price is C752.92 per MMBTU (British Metric Million Thermal Unit)
For commercial purposes, the price is C850.33 per unit
C720.72 per unit for industrial customers
For CNG customers, the price is C57.30 per kg
Average monthly natural gas consumption for a family of four is estimated at 0.4 units (C300 consumption only)
