India mulling to supply gas to its NE states thru’ Bangladesh
India is now considering transporting liquefied petroleum gas to its northeastern states via Bangladesh.

A 131-km India-Bangladesh Friendship Pipeline will be constructed from Siliguri in West Bengal to Parbatipur in Bangladesh

It will transport high speed diesel to Bangladesh, Petroleum Secretary K.D. Tripathi told the media in India.

Besides, a pipeline from Dattapulia in West Bengal will take natural gas to Khulna in Bangladesh.

Besides, India is also looking for transporting gas from West Bengal to NE states through the pipelines.

Tripathi said the pipelines are part of a non-binding Framework of Understanding which India will enter into with Bangladesh for cooperation in the hydrocarbon sector, which got the Cabinet nod.

Indian and Bangladeshi firms signed during Bangladesh Prime Minister’s India visit  memoranda of understanding of over $9 billion designed to strengthen cooperation in various sectors, including power, oil and gas.
