Union Oil Minister to dedicate two CNG stations in city today

Bhubaneswar: Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan will inaugurate two CNG stations at Chandrasekharpur and Patia in the city today afternoon.

The Union Minister will also launch the CNG-fuelled scooters. CNG is one of the most environment-friendly fuels as compared to conventional fuels.

After the two CNG stations at Chandrasekharpur and Patia, two more such stations will come up Khandagiri and Tamando soon.

Initially, natural gas will reach Bhubaneswar in special containers called cascades which will be transported by road from Vijaywada in Andhra Pradesh.

Later, natural gas will be supplied through the 2,655 kilometre long Jagdishpur Haldia and Bokaro Dhamra Natural Gas Pipeline (JHBDPL), popularly known as the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga. The proposed pipeline will connect major industrial clusters of Khurda, Jharsuguda, Rourkela, Sambalpur, Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Angul, Dhenkanal, Kalinga Nagar, Jajpur and Paradip.

The Union Minister will also lay the foundation stones for new Dhamra-Angul 36-inch main pipeline and Bhubaneswar-Cuttack-Paradip 12-inch spur line on Sunday at Haripur in Sukinda in Jajpur district.
