India-Bangladesh Gas Pipeline Via Siliguri
In an attempt to boost mutual cooperation in the energy sector, India is planning to build an oil and gas pipeline with Bangladesh, Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister of India Dharmendra Pradhan.
Pradhan said he had a very fruitful discussion on energy cooperation with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina during his recent visit to the country.
"The Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) has started the process for a pipeline from Contai in West Bengal via Haldia to Duttapulia on the India-Bangladesh border for supplying oil and natural gas," the news portal quoted the minister as saying.
"We have discussed with our Bangladesh friends and have agreed to take the pipeline to Bangladesh. There are also talks to bring the pipeline back to India through Siliguri," he said.
