IOAGPL has established its office and stockyard in the early 2016 in Dharwad district. The actual pipeline work was started in February-2017 after getting the permission from respective competent authorities such as Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation(HDMC) for laying gas pipeline. The delay in actual commencement of gas pipeline laying is due to the delay in getting permission from competent authorities for laying gas pipeline. Till date 8”x 25.1 Kms & 4”x 0.7 Kms of Steel pipeline has been laid (Total Inch-Km :203.6 ) and permission for laying of another 27.5 kms of steel pipeline is in hand.
