Natural Gas is the cleanest, efficient, non-polluting, environmentally friendly, and relatively economical of the fossil fuels. Natural gas pipelines are the core and strategic assets for India’s energy security and backbone to achieve the gas-based economy.

The Government of India is planning to invest billions of dollars to expand the gas pipeline network. Odisha has several cross country, city gas distribution and slurry gas pipeline projects ongoing from Indian Oil, GAIL, BGRL and JSW.

TCR Engineering Services has been leading the charge and is on its way to scale the regional hub branch established in Bhubaneshwar to perform Testing, Quality Assurance and Inspection activity in East and North-East India.

Several prestigious projects including the Paradip-Somnathpur-Haldia Pipeline, Paradip-Haldia-Durgapur LPG Pipeline, Koyali-Ahmednagar-Solapur Pipeline, as well as several city gas distribution pipeline projects are part of this engagement. TCR has also been approved by IOCL to work in multiple spreads of the prestigious 2,800 km long Kandla-Gorakhpur LPG pipeline which at once constructed, is expected to be World’s Longest LPG Pipeline.

As a Qualified Radiography provider, the team at TCR has also undertaken testing for multiple spreads of the Srikakulam-Angul project, which is a gas pipeline, with a maximum diameter of 24 inches, that starts in Andhra Pradesh and ends in Odisha (India).
