MAN Industries (India) Ltd said it has bagged a Rs 370-crore pipe supply order from IHB Private Ltd. which is a joint venture company of Indian Oil Corporation Ltd, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd, and engaged in implementing the 2,805-km Kandla-Gorakhpur LPG pipeline project. 
 
The order is for supply of SAW welded pipe of X-70 API grade, to be delivered in 6-8 months.
 
The pipeline, once constructed, is expected to be the world's longest LPG pipeline to be built by IHB.
 
MAN Industries Chairman R C Mansukhani said, "There has been an increased dependence on LPG which further increases the importance for the pipelines."
 
He added that by bagging the new order, "we are ensuring that we are part of the overall growth of the economy and are on course of continuous growth that can be witnessed by our current order book".
 
Being constructed at an investment of Rs 10,088 crore, the pipeline will source LPG from the LPG import terminals on the western coast located at Kandla, Dahej and Pipavav and also from two refineries at Koyali and Bina. The pipeline would be directly linked with 22 LPG bottling plants - three in Gujarat, six in Madhya Pradesh and 13 in Uttar Pradesh.
