IGGL is laying a 1,656 km long natural gas pipeline connecting the capital cities and demand centres of the north-eastern states. The signed hook-up agreements will facilitate the evacuation of 1,85,000 scmd of natural gas from Jorhat Asset, 82,500 scmd from Silchar asset and 7,00,000 scmd from the Tripura asset of ONGC through NEGG.

As per the strategy, the signed agreements will create further opportunities to connect more gas fields of ONGC with NEGG in future. IGGL is also continuously working towards connecting with other gas producing companies to connect their gas fields with NEGG. Apart from utilizing the hydrocarbon potential of the North-east region supported by the NEGG infrastructure, it will also pave the way for development of a gas-based economy in line with the government’s Hydrocarbon Vision 2030.
