According to the bank documents, this project will finance the development of city gas distribution (CGD) network in 9 geographical areas (the "Project") across the states of Andhra Pradesh (with 2 GAs), Karnataka (with 5 GAs), Kerala and Tamil Nadu (with 1 GA each), thereby reducing consumption of more polluting alternative petroleum products. These projects will be developed by a special purpose vehicle known as AGP City Gas Private Limited (AGPCGPL) and awarded by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board via an international competitive bid. The target of the project is to connect 10 million residential households to piped natural gas (PNG), install 1,351 compressed natural gas (CNG) stations to supply to the transport sector, and lay 16,186 inch-km of steel pipelines.
