    IOCL inaugurates LNG hub and first D-PNG connection in Salem

    May 30, 2023 - Indian Real Estate News


      May 30 -- The Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) inaugurated its first liquified natural gas (LNG) hub and first domestic piped natural gas (D-PNG) connection in Salem. The LNG hub is located at Mohan Nagar and will be used to distribute natural gas to domestic, industrial, and commercial consumers in the city. The D-PNG connection was inaugurated at the residence of the Salem Steel Plant Executive Director.

      Natural gas is a cleaner-burning fuel than LPG, diesel, and petrol, and it is also more economical. The Indian government has set a target of raising the share of natural gas in the energy mix to 15% by 2030. The expansion of the CGD network is one of the main steps towards achieving this target.

      The CGD network will cover 96% of India's population and 86% of its geographical area. This will allow natural gas to be used to meet the energy needs of a wider range of consumers. The use of natural gas will help to reduce pollution and improve air quality.

      The inauguration of the LNG hub and D-PNG connection in Salem is a significant step towards the government's target of increasing the use of natural gas in India. The expansion of the CGD network will benefit a wide range of consumers and help to improve the environment.
