HYDERABAD: The Chief Minister, N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, has appealed to Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas S. Jaipal Reddy to expedite the setting up of Naphtha Cracker Plant (NCP) in the Petroleum, Chemicals and Petrochemicals Investment Region (PCPIR) in the State.
In a letter sent to the Union Minister on Wednesday, Mr. Reddy said the NCP would be crucial for the development of the first PCPIR and for making it a hub of entire east coast of the country.
The Centre has constituted the first PCPIR of the country in the State spread over an area of 605 square kilometres. The State has bountiful resources to excel in petrochemical and natural gas sectors on the strength of its resource potential in Krishna- Godavari basin.
He said he had detailed discussion with representatives of the Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) on setting of the NCP. The AP Industrial Infrastructure Corporation was working closely with GAIL for creating the required infrastructure for the project. Assuring full support of his Government, he wanted the Union Minister to direct the concerned officials to speed up the process of locating the NCP in PCPIR.
