Meanwhile, he praised the Assam Gas Company Limited (AGCL) for being able to reach over 42,000 domestic customers and 1,200 business entities in both urban and rural areas throughout all of Upper Assam’s districts.

The Assam CM, citing the Central government’s ‘Hydrocarbon Vision-2030,’ said that the potential of hydrocarbon in Northeast India can be gauged by the fact that the region possesses a vast number of hydrocarbon reserves, which, if properly utilised, can create a spectacular growth narrative.

The potential for hydrocarbon in northeast India may be gauged by the fact that the region possesses a substantial quantity of hydrocarbon deposits, which, if properly utilised, can help the region write a spectacular growth story, he said.

The Assam CM also asked AGCL to engage closely with the Government of India PSUs, sister organisations, and the local community to revitalise the company’s operations and development.

The Assam CM spoke at the Assam Gas Company Limited’s diamond jubilee celebrations in Duliajan, Dibrugarh district, according to the sources.

Assam CM urges AGCL to expand its capacity and reach to transport gas to neighbouring states and countries

Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma encouraged the Assam Gas Company Limited (AGCL) to strengthen its gas grid network, extend its capacity and reach, and transport gas to neighbouring states and nations. 

Moreover, Assam CM also encouraged AGCL to enter the electric vehicle charging station business in the state.

Moreover, Sarma said, “AGCL should venture into tapping energy generated from electricity other than energy produced from fossil fuel in view of the growing importance of innovation and diversification in today’s business world.”

In light of the growing importance of innovation and diversity in today’s corporate world, he also suggested that AGCL consider accessing energy created from electricity rather than energy produced from fossil fuels.

However, he congratulated AGCL’s previous and present executives and officials on their contributions to the state’s industrial landscape over the last six decades, and he paid tribute to individuals whose vision and actions were crucial in establishing this industry.

In addition, Assam CM praised AGCL for winning a bid to establish the City Gas Distribution (CGD) Network in Lakhimpur, Dhemaji, Darrang, Udalguri, Sonitpur, and Biswanath districts on the north bank of the Brahmaputra, as well as numerous districts in Tripura, with Oil India Limited.

Meanwhile, the Assam CM praised AGCL for being a pioneer in recognising the market potential for alternative green fuels in Assam by establishing the state’s first CNG station in Chowkidingi, Dibrugarh.

He also praised the achievements of recognised technocrat and engineer Debendra Nath Acharya, who was instrumental in the consolidation of AGCL when it was still in its infancy.

“Assam Gas Company has played a major role in tea production by providing gas in about 420 tea gardens and tea factories located in districts like Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Sivasagar, Charaideo, Jorhat and Golaghat. In addition, the use of natural gas supplied by AGCL at Power Sector Industries has also played an important role in the generation of environmentally friendly energy in the state”, he said.
