The Jagadishpur-Haldia-Bokaro-Dhamra Natural Gas Pipeline (JHBDPL) is a proposed natural gas pipeline.[1] LiveMint reported in September 2015 that GAIL was in the process of laying pipe for the Jagadishpur-Haldia-Bokaro-Dhamra Natural Gas Pipeline with an expected commission date of 2020.[3] However, The Dollar Business reported in October of 2016 that the project would be completed by 2018 due to a capital grant to jumpstart the project, used over a period of five years.[4] In May 2019 it was reported that construction of the pipeline to Barauni was complete, and that the entire pipeline would be commissioned by December 2021.[5] In August 2020 GAIL's annual report for 2019-20 stated that the 750-km Phulpur-Varanasi-Gaya-Patna-Barauni section of the pipeline had been commissioned.[6]
