The pipeline also supplies Natural Gas for Patna City Gas Distribution network (CGD). This is a major milestone towards providing green fuel to the eastern part of the country. The work for balance portion is going on in full swing and is scheduled to be completed by December 2021 in a phased manner. The construction work of Dobhi – Durgapur Pipeline section is likely to be completed by December 2019 for supplying gas to Matix Fertilizers, Durgapur, West Bengal.
