Gujarat is one of the highly industrialized states in India. Looking on to the sharp rise in gas availability on account of exploration and development of LNG terminals, a well developed natural gas transportation infrastructure was required to serve various industrial belts of the state.
GSPC identified Gujarat's concern for infrastructure development to support the future hydrocarbon economy and industry. A new company was set up in December 1998, Gujarat State Petronet Limited (GSPL), with a mandate to create a high-pressure pipeline network for natural gas transportation in Gujarat.
GSPL's primary objective is to connect various supply sources and users of natural gas in Gujarat through gas pipeline network.
GSPL commenced transporting natural gas following completion of the first segment of network in November 2000. Currently GSPL operates a medium-to-high pressure natural gas transmission grid comprising approximately 1874 km of pipeline network
