Larsen & Toubro to build two pipelines for Cairn India.

The Engineering and Construction Projects Division of Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) has been awarded EPC contracts by Cairn India for an export crude oil insulated pipeline and a gas pipeline from Barmer, Rajasthan to Salaya, Gujarat.

The scope of work involves the laying of a cross country 24-inch skin heat maced insulated pipeline for crude oil transportation from the Mangala terminal, located at Barmer, Rajasthan to the Salaya Oil Export terminal, near Jamnagar. The pipeline route will run 205 miles south from the Mangala Field to a pump station and oil take off point at Viramgam. From Viramgam the pipeline continues for 2,162 miles southwest to an export oil terminal at Salaya.

Another 8-inch diameter pipeline will be laid for transporting natural gas from the Raageshwari Fields which will be laid alongside the 24-inch pipeline to the Salaya receiving facility for feeding the gas generator sets located at 32 sites along the route. Pipe manufacturer Jindal Saw has secured a $200 million order from Cairn Energy India to supply line pipe, tracer tube, insulation and bends for India's Barmer Salaya Pipeline project. The company will execute this order between May and December.
