About Event  | Brochure


 Pipelines constitute an important segment of transport infrastructure for material such as hydrocarbons, water and slurry. In fact pipelines contribute significantly to the growth when the economy is in infrastructure Creation mode.

In addition there is a need for an efficient system and devices that could monitor flow and other parameters. A sustainable pipeline system is essential for the public use and industrial requirement. India's petroleum and water sector has small pipeline density when compared to countries like US, Canada, UK or China.

 The midstream gas pipeline has good connectivity in major city areas for compressed natural gas and piped natural gas. On the other hand remote areas and parts of major cities have to rely on LPG bottled cylinder for domestic and industrial use. Hydrocarbon Vision 2025 has put a major emphasis to create additional infrastructure for distribution and marketing of oil and gas.

 To supply the future demand, with no cross country pipeline in place, the importance of R-LNG is set to increase. The 2540 km long Jagdishpur-Hadia & Bokaro-Dharma Natural Gas Pipeline Project (JHBDPL) under Urja Ganga Pipeline Project when completed will supply natural gas to Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Bihar, Odisha and Jharkhand and will benefit 20 lakh families.

 Like the fundamental requirement of universal energy access for all cross section of the society, clean drinking water has been declared as a basic human right by the international community. Around 225 mn people in India do not have access to safe drinking water. Many states including Gujarat, Maharashtra and Karnataka are setting up bulk pipelines to meet the demand of their respective states.

 Gujarat government has laid down water pipeline from Chavand (Amreli) to Dhoraji (Rajkot) for providing Narmada water to 156 villages & 5 towns in Rajkot.

Telangana water grid (a network of pipeline carrying water), is a major initiative by the Government of Telangana towards a sustainable and long lasting solution to the drinking water non-availability. It is a huge 1.26 lakh km length of pipeline that will carry water to towns and villages in Telgana apart from meeting the industrial requirement. The state Government will be using latest technology for the proposed Water Grid Project.

While Land acquisition, profitability, risk management, safety, environmental and local clearances are some of the issues that are being faced by pipeline projects in the country, undoubtedly they provide an eco -friendly and efficient mode of transport. Pipelines that are protected from corrosion cracking, collapse and strain is desired in a network.

In view of the large scale development of pipelines infrastructure in the country, it is anticipated that

implementation of pipeline projects both in the water and hydrocarbon sector will be taken both in the PPP mode as well as through Government funding.


In this context ASSOCHAM is organising a Summit on “India Pipeline: Opportunities in Energy, Infrastructure, Water and Slurry" on 13 June 2017 at Hotel Le-Meridien, New Delhi.
