The operation of the Nepal-India Interstate Petroleum Pipeline has been completed for almost two years, resulting in a saving of Rs 3 billion. The pipeline reduced the cost of transportation.

Nepal Oil Corporation established the pipeline from Motihari, India to Amalekhgunj, Nepal, stretching in 79 km distance. The pipeline was established under the assistance of the Indian Oil Corporation. The petroleum product is being supplied via underground pipeline since Bhadra 2076 BS.

The NOC informed that with the implementation of the pipeline, it was able to save Rs 2.23 billion.

In this period of two years, NOC imported 1.61 billion litres of diesel. A total volume of 150,000 litres of diesel is imported daily.

NOC Executive Director Surendra Pandey said NOC was able to make this saving from the transportation cost and reduced technical loss. He further said the process was initiated with the help of the Indian Oil Corporation to import petrol and kerosene from the same pipeline.

The import of diesel via pipeline has been one of the successful G2G models.

Chief of NOC at Province-2, Pradip Kumar Yadav, informed that the supply of petrol, diesel, and kerosene from the same pipeline would begin after one and half years.
