Prime Minister Narendra Modi formally inaugurated the Hollong Modular Gas Processing Plant (HMGPP) of Hindustan Oil Exploration Co. Ltd. (HOEC) at Dirok Field in Assam.
Located in Margherita, Tinsukia district of Assam, the plant will initially have a capacity to process 35 million standard cubic feet per day of gas equivalent to 15 per cent of Assam gas production and 800 barrels of condensate.
The gas produced from this field will be supplied to consumers in the North-East region, including Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Ltd.
In the second phase, the company will drill four new wells, expand HMGPP and build a 35-km long pipeline to connect to the gas marketing hub at Duliajan and increase the production capacity to 50 mmscfd.
In a statement, the company said modular, innovative and standardised design of this plant, a first of its kind in India, enabled fast-track delivery of the project.
