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 (Kasargod) – Mangaluru Section are already in full swing. With today’s award of contracts, over 75% of the Kochi – Koottanad – Mangaluru Pipeline will be 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 Kochi – Koottanad – Mangaluru Pipeline is likely to give a major economic boost to the state of Kerala by way of environmentally benign industrial development.
GAIL is targeting to complete the entire Kochi – Koottanad – Mangaluru Pipeline by December 2018.
