New Delhi: Reliance Industries will start supplying natural gas from its eastern offshore KG-D6 fields by April, petroleum minister Murli Deora has said.
“It has been decided to supply the first 40 million standard cubic meters per day of gas to meet the shortfall of exiting gas-based urea plants, LPG plants and power plants,” he said.
Gas would also be supplied to meet the requirement of CNG and piped natural gas for residential and transport sectors.
“The decision would go a long way to increase the supply of fertiliser in the country, bring down the fertiliser subsidy, increase production of power and LPG,” he said.
