Rayong to Nonthaburi Gas Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline. The pipeline is also known as the Fifth Transmission Project and Fifth Transmission Project - Phase 2, a name that has also been used to describe the Chachoengsao-Nonthaburi Gas Pipeline.
The proposed pipeline would run from Rayong, Thailand to Sai Noi, Nonthaburi to the North Bangkok Power Plant and South Bangkok Power Plant. The exact route appears on p.14 of a September 2016 TRC Corporate presentation on the project.

Rayong is the receiving port for Thailand’s LNG imports and is located adjacent to the country’s only regasification plant. In June 2017 it was reported that JFE Steel had received an order for 230,000 metric tons of pipes for building the pipeline. In August 2017 the project was included in TRE Construction's overview of current projects.
In March 2020 the pipeline was reported to be 85.62% complete.
