It is produced from the oil / gas wells and transported through a network of pipelines across the country. Presently over 35 lakhs domestics PNG connection are present in India.

Unlike LPG, Natural Gas does not require storage cylinders. The pipeline ensures constant flow of fuel to your household through a countrywide distribution pipeline.
3. HOW DOES GAS PIPELINE REACH OUR HOMES ?
GNGPL gets the source natural gas through the main transportation pipe and receives it at city gate station and steel grid network. To regularize the pressure of the gas, District Regulatory System is installed. Further a network of MDPE (Medium-density polyethylene), is developed to reach to different societies and building etc. The regulator, followed by raiser with GI pipeline is installed which is connected to a meter. A copper pipe and further rubber tubing is done to get PNG reach to stoves.

No. GNGPL ensures seamless conversion experience from your existing LPG to PNG. GNGPL provides the PNG connection to your kitchen cook top along with installation services including necessary supporting fittings, pressure regulator and meter.
