Gas for Telangana projects

August 11, 2012

Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy mounted pressure on the Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas S Jaipal Reddy for allocation of two important power projects. The CM has written a letter to Jaipal Reddy stating that the APGENCO could not start construction on its two gas based power projects. The projects are located at Nedunur in Karimnagar and another at Shakarapalli in Ranga Reddy.

These two projects are very important to the Telangana region for agriculture and industry sectors. He said that despite repeated requests, no gas allocation was made to these two projects. The Chief Minister said that he had taken up the issue with the Prime Minister. He also requested an allocation of 9.72 MMSCMD gas to Nedunur project and 4.62 NMSCMD gas to Shakarapalli power project on priority basis.

Kiran Kumar Reddy said that Nedunur is the first gas based power project by APGENCO and is also a major project in Telangana region. For Shankarapalli project, all developmental activities including land acquisition were completed for construction once the gas was made.
