The India-Bangladesh Friendship Pipeline (IBFPL) may become operational next month. Official sources gave this information on Sunday. The 130 kilometer long ambitious project has cost Rs 377.08 crore.
Through the international oil pipeline IBFPL, the fuel will be transported from Assam-based Numaligarh Refinery Limited’s (NRL) marketing terminal at Siliguri in Bengal to Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation’s (BPC) Parbatipur depot. The foundation stone of this pipeline was laid in September 2018 in the presence of the Prime Ministers of India and Bangladesh through video conference. The project is truly an engineering ‘miracle’, said a senior official of the largest refinery company in the Northeast. This has been accomplished with mutual cooperation and technical understanding between the two countries. This is a testimony to the good relations between the two South-Asian countries.
