LPG THROUGH PIPELINES
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.
