Background

The pipeline would be owned and operated by GSPL India Gasnet Limited (GIGL). The Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board authorized GIGL to build the pipeline in July 2011.[1] The pipeline was listed as "Under Construction" in a January 2018 report by the Petroleum Planning & Analysis Cell of the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas.[4] However in August 2019 it was reported that construction had not yet begun due to delays in acquiring land, and that it was scheduled to begin in September 2019.[3] Land acquisition is expected to happen more quickly after the August 2019 revocation of Article 370, which gave autonomy to the states of Jammu and Kashmir.[5]
