Carrying forward the momentum for natural gas pipeline works in Kerala, GAIL India Ltd. (GAIL) has awarded additional pipelaying contracts for the Kochi-Koottanad-Mangaluru pipeline, for another 131 km section from Areacode (Malappuram) to Kurumathoor (Kannur).

The additional pipelaying words will cost approximately Rs 200 crore.

The balance 111 km stretch in Malappuram, Kannur and Kasargod districts will be awarded by July 2017.

Construction works from both the ends of the Kochi-Koottanad-Mangaluru pipeline (i.e. in the 91 km Kochi-Koottanad section as well as in the 105 km Perole-Mangaluru section) are already in full swing.

Now, with this new award of contracts, over 75% of the Kochi-Koottanad-Mangaluru pipeline is in the construction phase.

GAIL has been able to make substantial progress in acquisition of right of user due to the continued support of the State Government, Administration, police and the public at large. The pipeline project is likely to give a major economic boost to the state of Kerala by way of environmentally benign industrial development.

The pipeline project has a targeted completion date December 2018.
