  • However, GAIL is executing Lingala-Kaikaluru pipeline which would interconnect the Lingala-Kaikaluru isolated gas field grid with KG basin pipeline network.
  • The project work relating to laying of 42 km pipeline has been completed except for two railway crossings, stretch of 345 metres of pipeline laying and few Station Works.
