Tripura: ONGC to set up state’s first gas-based tea processing plant; CNG-PNG corridor in the works

Three years after they failed to float a gas-based urea fertiliser plant in Tripura, ONGC has now worked out an alternative business model to use its 0.4 mmscmd small gas deposit lying defunct at Khubal of Tripura’s North district by setting up the state’s first gas-based tea processing plant and a CNG, PNG corridor through Tripura.
