Should GAIL get monopoly rights over the national gas grid 02 May 42612 (08:02 AM)
GAIL has of late gone on the offensive for becoming the sole agency for implementation and operation of the proposed nationwide gas grid. The gas operator's case is quite strong. The company has claimed complete ownership of the grid on grounds of sensitivity and project value, both in terms of cost and energy security. Further, it has argued that globally 38 out of 39 countries preferred single ownership of the gas network. What is more, the usual practice is to ensure public or state ownership, except USA which has a multiplayer system. Also, the argument goes, single ownership of gas grid would ensure uninterrupted and consistent supply of gas to the markets, along with operational cost savings for the economy. However, others disagree with GAIL's views, notably Reliance, Shell and BP. Their argument is that the 7,900 km. gas grid should not be restricted to one player. Rather, it should be left to market forces. The government conferred  monopoly status on GAIL in its draft gas pipeline policy. But, continuing debate on the matter and vehement objections from the abovementioned private players has shaken the government's resolve and it is still undecided on the ownership pattern of the gas grid . How about you? Do you feel the national gas grid would be better off with a GAIL monopoly or do you think other players should also take part in the process?

In my view only GAIL should be given the right as Gas pipeline involves high safety related issues and GAIl have an excellent past record and also being government company has accountability . Where as private players can manupulate with the figures as the case of UC Bhopal which every one knowes.Also this right is only for construction and maintenance of pipeline. Hence all company has the right to send their product. But by giving ownership to one company ie GAIL the cost of maintenance will be reduced which will benefit the consumers.

GAIL has been given undue priority to lay and own natural gas pipelines in India Courtesy goes to MoP& NG This Jinx was earlier broken by companies like GGCL and GSPC due to empowerment given by Natural gas transmission and distribution act Gujarat,2001. but this kind of act should be repeated to provide a level playing field and not just feeding one kid over the other and making it a monster. When it is the matter of laying pipeline for expansion of Panipat refinery then the hold ofthe pipeline should be given to IOC only

INDEED , GAIL IS ONLY PLAYER WHICH CAN DO THIS UPHILL TASK SUCCESSFULLY, HOWEVER TO MANY PRIVATE PLAYERS ARE IN LINE AND TRYING TO FORCE THE GOVT. TO DIVERT THE GAS GRID TO OTHERS. BUT I SAY THAT THIS IS NOT ONLY THE ISSUE OF BUISNESS BUT LINKED WITH SECURITY OF NATION. AND GAIL HAS RICH AND VAST EXPERIENCE IN THIS FIELD IN SPITE OF THAT IT'S A GOVT. PSU. GAIL IS RUNNING WITH CHANGING TIME AND PROVING THAT IT CAN DO... SO IN TODAYS , GAIL IS ONLY OPTION FOR NATIONAL GAS GRID..

Hey, why don't you guys initiate another relevant issue? GAIL's monopoly is long gone-- truly buried and dead and for all you know, resurrected and buried again. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, pal! So, rise and shine, rise and shine. Aren't you guys supposed to be THE news site for the OIL & GAS Industry in the whole gig? So, get your asses moving and rack your rusted brains!

its the real time to give rights to the psu and other goverment owned industry to take part in the profit making rather than bearing the burden of the whole economy. think in the point of view of the GAIL why it is not becoming the real rolr model in the industry? private players are allowed to slash down the prices but the goverment one have to give them competition by bearing the burden of more than 240000 crores of subsidies. this can really be breakeven if the gail is allowed for the national grid so that he can easily control the demand and pricing of the gas sector.

Giving monopoly right to a party is likely to distort especially gas market and very purpose of flow of gas from one part of India to another part may hamper. This may also lead to a situation when consumers may have to pay higher transportation charges.
