The existing petroleum pipeline from Motihari to Amalekhgunj will be extended to Lothar by connecting pipes and for this, the joint task force is working on the DPR action plan modality after the required survey completed on mutual understanding between the governments of Nepal and India.

One lakh kiloliters of petroleum will be stored in Lothar. Earlier, diesel was brought from Motihari to the Amalekhgunj-based corporation’s depot through the pipeline since August 2020, but now the homework of bringing petrol through the same pipeline has started, said Bharat Regmi, chief of NOC Province 2 Office. For time being, diesel comes from Motihari to Amalekhgunj passing Raxaul from the Nepal-India interstate petroleum pipeline.

It is believed that the shortage of petroleum products in western and northern Nepal will end with the expansion of the petroleum pipeline from Amalekhgunj to Lothar.
