Adani Gas Limited, Indian Oil Corporation and a few other private players have won the tender to set up similar pump stations and PNG connections in other parts of Tamil Nadu. These projects aim at making Indian cities greener by putting up a gas grid all across India.

In Tamil Nadu, natural gas supply might be routed through GAIL pipelines, which run from Kochi through western districts. Another possible route is Ennore-Tuticorin line, an LNG terminal is also under construction at Ennore, according to a PNGRB official.
