About GAIL


GAIL (India) Ltd. was incorporated in August, 1984 as a Central Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) under the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas (MoP&NG), with the mission of “accelerating and optimizing the effective and economic use of Natural Gas and its fractions for the benefit of the national economy”. Government of India now holds 51.45% shares of the company. GAIL became a Navratna in 1997 and is now one of the ten Maharatna Public Sector Undertaking, the highest status conferred to any PSU.

GAIL started as a Gas Transmission Company during the late eighties and has grown organically by setting up a large network of Natural Gas pipelines of ~ 14380 Km; two LPG Pipeline systems of ~ 2000 Km; five Gas Processing plants for production of LPG and other liquid hydrocarbons with a combined production capacity of around 1.4 MMTPA and a gas based integrated petrochemical plant of capacity 810 KTPA of polymer.
