ONGC, Reliance In Talks With Customers To Sell East Coast Gas

India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corp Ltd and Reliance Industries Ltd have started discussions with buyers to sell natural gas from their fields in the Bay of Bengal that are expected to start production over the next three years.

The plan is to transport the gas from the east coast to the industrial heart belt of western India, an ONGC executive told Reuters.

“We want to use the pipeline to reach customers in West India to sell gas from the KG basin. We are talking to some of them for contracts,” Shashi Shankar, chairman and managing director of ONGC, said on the margins of the International Energy Forum.

ONGC plans to use Reliance Industries’ 1,375 km pipeline connecting Kakinada on the east coast to Bharuch in Gujarat in the west.
