At present, Public Sector Oil Marketing Companies are supplying LPG through bulk LPG/cylinder manifold installation (piped/reticulated system) to domestic customers on pilot basis in Visakhapatnam, Bangalore and Mumbai. M/s Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited has taken initiative to introduce the reticulated system in individual societies in various cities. In the deregulated scenario, Public Sector Oil Marketing Companies would be free to adopt different modes of supply of LPG to the consumers keeping in view their market interest and customers’ needs. As per the available information, in some countries distribution of LPG through piped/reticulated system is prevalent.

The above information was given by Shri Ram Naik, Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas in the Lok Sabha in reply to a question.
