The Government of Jharkhand and GAIL (India) Limited on 15 October 2015 inked a Gas Cooperation Agreement (GCA) for creation of Natural Gas and City Gas Distribution infrastructure. The infrastructure will assist the construction of Urja Ganga Jagdishpur-Haldia Pipeline project in the state.

The project aims at connecting eastern India to the national natural gas grid.

As per the terms of agreement, GAIL will set up a 174 kilometres main line and 166 kilometres spurlines in Jharkhand as part of the 2050 kilometres Jagdishpur-Haldia gas pipeline project linking Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal.

The pipeline will pass through six districts, Bokaro, Giridih, Hazaribagh, Dhanbad, East Singbhum and Ranchi.
