Maytas Infra successfully commissions RJPL Pipeline

Gujarat state owned Gujarat State Petronet Ltd. (GSPL) awarded the Rs. 303.45 crores, EPC contract to MNJV which is a joint venture between Maytas Infra and Naftogazbud, a Ukrainian giant in pipeline construction. The pipeline is being laid to supply Natural Gas to Reliance’s upcoming refinery at Jamnagar from the Godavari Basin in Kakinada.

The commissioning also marks Maytas Infra winning the certification to do jobs for line diameters of 48” in O&G projects – which puts Maytas Infra into an elite league.

Commenting on the project commissioning, Mr. Chander Sheel Bansal, President–Transportation, Oil & Gas, Maytas Infra said, “We are very elated at this proud achievement. It gives us great pleasure to weather the current situation and come out with a winning project. Commissioning of GSPL is not only a testimony to Maytas Infra’s execution capability but also has proven that we will battle unfavorable conditions to ensure we meet our commitments towards our clients. Moving ahead, Maytas Infra will now be able to participate in niche Oil & Gas projects. This will only motivate us to do better. This renewed confidence will greatly boost the morale of the employees who are raring to delight the clients.”

The Oil & Gas Team has completed the mechanical completion of the pipeline in October, and Nitrogen filling was completed in December last year. The high pressure 30 inch diameter and 110 km long pipeline is laid between Jamnagar and Rajkot which is part of the GSPL pipeline from Bharuch to Jamnagar.

The scope of work for this project includes complete residual / detailed engineering, procurement and supply, fabrication, storage at site, transportation, erection, installation, inspection, testing, preparation and restoration of ROU, pre-commissioning, commissioning, one month operation, construction of terminal and tap off stations along with all associated works.
