IGL provides 1 lakh domestic gas connections

Indraprastha Gas Ltd, the sole CNG and piped natural gas retailer in national capital region, today said it has provided a record 1.01 lakh domestic cooking gas connections in 2014-15.

“Carrying forward the vision of the government towards expansion of piped natural gas (PNG) network in the country in a mission mode, IGL provided a record number of 101,285 domestic PNG connections in 2014-15,” the company said in a statement here.

IGL, a joint venture of state-owned gas utility GAIL India and BPCL for retailing CNG to automobiles and PNG to households in Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad and Greater Noida, said this feat was unparallelled in its 16 years history.

“The number of PNG connections provided by IGL in 2014-15 is the highest among all city gas distribution companies in the country in a financial year,” the statement said adding the total number of domestic PNG connections has now risen to 560,752.

IGL had added 72,771 connections during 2013-14.

Its Managing Director Narendra Kumar said IGL was committed to maintaining highest level of safety standards in its operations and appealed to all the customers to strictly follow the safety precautions as disseminated by IGL from time to time.

He added that it would be the endeavour of IGL to better its record in the current year by covering new colonies and increasing PNG penetration in the already covered colonies for which resources in terms of material and manpower are already in place.

IGL sells clean fuel to nearly 8 lakh vehicles in NCR through a network of over 300 CNG stations. IGL is supplying PNG to over 5,60,000 households in Delhi and NCR towns.
