Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated to the nation and laid the foundation of key projects of the oil and gas sector in Tamil Nadu on 17 February 2021. 
The PM inaugurated the Ramanathapuram-Thoothukudi natural gas pipeline and gasoline desulphurisation unit at the Chennai Petroleum Corporation (CPCL), Manali. He also laid the foundation stone of Cauvery Basin Refinery at Nagapattinam. 
The Indian Oil’s 143 km long natural gas pipeline from Ramanathapuram to Tuticorin being launched will monetise the gas from ONGC gas fields. This is part of a larger natural gas pipeline project being developed at a cost of Rs 4,500 crore. It will benefit Ennore, Thiruvallur, Bengaluru, Puducherry, Nagapattinam, Madurai and Tuticorin.
These gas pipeline projects will also enable development of city gas projects which are being developed at 10 districts in the state at an investment of Rs 5,000 crore. 
The gas from ONGC field will now be delivered to the Southern Petrochemical Industries Corporation, Tuticorin. This pipeline is going to supply natural gas as feedstock at a cheaper cost to SPIC for manufacturing fertiliser. 
The feedstock will now be continuously available with no storage requirements. This is expected to result in savings in the range of Rs 70 to Rs 95 crore in cost of production annually. 
The Centre has planned to spend Rs 7.5 lakh crore in creating oil and gas infrastructure over five years. A strong emphasis has been laid on the expansion of city gas distribution networks by covering 407 districts. 
A total of 95 percent of Tamil Nadu’s LPG customers have joined the PAHAL Scheme. Under the Ujjwala Yojana, over 32 lakh BPL households in the state have been given new connections. Over 31.6 lakh households benefited from free refills under the PM Garib Kalyan Yojana. 
The Cauvery Basin Refinery to be set up at Nagapattinam will have a capacity of nine million tpa. It will be set up through a joint venture (JV) of IOCL and CPCL at an estimated project cost of Rs 31,500 crore.  It will produce motor spirit and diesel meeting BS-VI specifications and polypropylene as a value-added product. 
CPCL’s new refinery at Nagapattinam anticipates about 80 percent indigenous sourcing of materials and services. The refinery is going to boost development of transport facilities, downstream petrochemical industries and ancillary and small scale industries in the region. 
He also inaugurated gasoline desulphurisation unit at CPCL, Manali. The unit has been constructed at the cost of around Rs 500 crore. It will produce low sulphur environment-friendly gasoline, help reduce emission and contribute towards a cleaner environment. 
In the past six years, over Rs 50,000 crore worth oil and gas projects have been approved for implementation in the state. Of this, over Rs 9,100 crore projects sanctioned before 2014 were completed. In addition, over Rs 4,300 crore worth projects are in the pipeline.
