Udaipur Soon to Get CNG filling Stations

Udaipur is on its way toward establishing Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) filling stations in the city. Directions were provided for speeding up the process of the construction of the stations in a meeting between the Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) and the state government officials which was held on May 12.

Udaipur, along with 11 other cities of the state, will soon get CNG filling stations. These locations, which were finalized in the meeting, are Jaipur, Dungarpur, Jodhpur, Jhunjhunu, Bikaner, Sriganganagar, Ajmer, Barmer, Jaisalmer, Chittogarh and Bhilwara.

“In our meeting, we requested the company officials to expedite the process of city gas distribution network project in other cities. However, this can only be done with the approval of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB). We hope that the identified cities will soon have CNG stations,” said Sudhansh Pant, Secretary for Mines & Petroleum.

“We are willing to expand our operations in the state. But we can only proceed after the permission is granted by PNGRB. If the board awards the contract to us, it is likely that we will follow the same model of city gas distribution network in other parts too,” said an official from GAIL.

The only operational CNG outlet in the sate so far is in Kota. This filling station supplies gas to a total of 6 industrial, 8 commercial and 25 domestic consumers.

CNG, apart from being a pollution free gas, is also a cost effective alternative to other hydrocarbons. The CNG filling station in Kota provide the fuel at Rs 47.60 per kg, a much lower price as compared to petrol which has crossed the Rs. 75 per litre mark.
