Bhubaneswar: Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) will set up an LPG bottling plant in Balangir. This will be the BPCL’s second LPG bottling plant in Odisha.

Union minister of petroleum and natural gas Dharmendra Pradhan will lay the foundation stone for the proposed plant on May 21. Union minister of social justice and empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot will also be present on the occasion.

Regional LPG manager (east) Atul Kumar said: “We are committed to provide LPG gas to our consumers on time. We already have an LPG bottling plant at Khurda. This will be our second plant in the state that is going to be constructed in Balangir.”

The new LPG bottling plant will be constructed at Barkhani village, around 12km from Balangir railway station. The plant will come up on 23 acres and will have the capacity to produce 42 lakh cylinders per year. The plant is expected to be operational by March 2020.
