India, Nepal inaugurate Motihari-Amlekhganj energy pipeline


Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Nepal counterpart K.P. Sharma Oli inaugurated the 69-km Motihari – Amlekhganj energy pipeline via video link. PM Modi said India – Nepal ties shall continue to expand across multiple sectors.

The Prime Minister also welcomed the announcement made by the Nepal Pm to reduce the price of petroleum products by Rs. 2 per litre in Nepal.

The pipeline was in planning stages for several years and the deal to construct the pipeline was finally inked in 2015. The pipeline has the capacity to supply Nepal with 2 million metric tonnes per annum and shall greatly reduce the cost of transporting oil products to Nepal.

A test supply was successfully carried out last month. The project is being led by Indian Oil Corporation and Nepal Oil Corporation which has built the necessary infrastructure at Amlekhganj for distribution of energy in the Himalayan country.
