Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal to Set Up Energy Cooperation Network

7 August 2017

Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas, India, announced India's plans to set up an energy cooperation network with neighboring countries Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Nepal. The network would pave the way for installation of huge pipelines that would carry diesel, liquefied petroleum gas, and other petroleum products to the mountainous northeastern states of India and the surrounding region.

To be implemented under the Hydrocarbon Vision 2030, the 6,900 kilometer pipeline would link Sittwe (Myanmar), Chittagong (Bangladesh), states in northeastern India, and Siliguri and Durgapur in West Bengal (India). The pipeline aims to address geographical challenges of carrying petroleum products in the region, such as frequent landslides.
