Natual Gas

Tripura has vast reserve of natural gas. The gas is available in non-associate form, with high methane content of up to 97%. Present availability of gas is 1.5 MMSCMD which is likely to go up at the level of 6.0 MMSCMD by 2012-13 onwards. Concessional Gas Pricing and vast reserve creates potential for setting up industries in this sector.

Geological Mapping and exploration undertaken by Geological Survey and Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. has proved economic mineral deposit of Natural Gas (including condensate).
