Fuel pipelines to North,Northeast under study

Viraphol Jirapraditkul, director-general of the department, said at a press briefing yesterday that the Petroleum Institute of Thailand completed the investment plan for the pipelines which would be extended from the oil depot in Saraburi to Lampang (613km) and Khon Kaen (345km). Oil depots would also be built in Phitsanulok, Lampang, Khon Kaen and Nakhon Ratchasima. While the pipelines should cost the investment of about Bt8 billion, oil depots will require an investment of Bt4 billion.

He said that the pipelines would save transportation cost by truck by as much as Bt42 billion in a 25-year period. Plus, it would save the truck maintenance cost by Bt19.5 billion and reduce greenhouse gases at the value of Bt530 million, aside from a cut in road maintenance cost.
