Chennai-Trichy-Madurai petroleum products pipeline
In September 2004 Stroytransgaz, in a consortium with Indian company Essar Construction Ltd., began building-assembly work on the Chennai-Trichy-Madurai petroleum products pipeline in the southern part of India. The pipeline runs 688
kilometers. The Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. was customer for the project.
The Chennai-Trichy-Maurai pipeline was designed to transport petroleum products from the Indian Oil Corporation’s refinery in the city of Chennai in the Trichy and Maurai area of the Indian state Tamil Nadu.
The pipeline consists of the following sections: the first—a 258-kilometer section of 14 inches in diameter, the second—a 158-kilometer section of 12.75 inches in diameter, the third—a 272-kilometer section of 10.75 inches in diameter.
As leader of the consortium, Stroytransgaz provided technical assistance to the Indian partner and delivered specialized construction equipment.
Work was completed in 2005.
