Imphal, July 3: The 2nd Sub-committee meeting of Hydrocarbon vision 2030 for North East India has been scheduled on July 7 at Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) office at the national capital. The meeting is to discuss and deliberate on Gas pipeline and related issues. Hydrocarbon vision 2030 for North-East India is a plan released by Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, on 9 February 2016 to empower the hydrocarbon sector for development of the North-East region covering the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, and Tripura. The purpose of the vision document is to plan and prepare a roadmap for the next decades and-a-half to enhance the Oil and Gas production in the North-East-Region of India; to outline and put in the required investment in hydrocarbon sector in the region to enhance exploration activities; and to expand the Piped Natural Gas (PNG) network and secure the availability of petroleum products, including Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in the remotest corners of the North-East region. The vision also focuses on other areas including exploring hydrocarbon linkages and trade opportunities with neighbouring countries like Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal and Bhutan. As part of the plan, a pipeline connecting Sitwe (Myanmar) – Silchar – Imphal has been envisaged (subject to availability of Gas from Myanmar) which will be implemented in the 3rd phase for which a timeframe has not yet been prepared. The success and timely implementation of the proposal will largely depend on availability of statutory permissions such as Forest, Environment Clearance, Wildlife Sanctuaries etc. which are pre-requisites.
