The Jagadishpur-Haldia-Bokaro-Dhamra Natural Gas Pipeline (JHBDPL) is a proposed natural gas pipeline. 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. 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. 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. 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.
