AGARTALA, INDIA: State-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) recently said they were planning to set up hydrocarbon-based urea fertiliser plant in Tripura after completion of Rs 3,950 crore power project at Palatana in South Tripura district. “A survey for setting up an urea plant is going on. Based on gas availability in Thobal plant in North Tripura district and if it is feasible, the plant would be set up,” said Sudhir Vasudeva, Chairman and Managing Director, ONGC.

While visiting the state, Vasudeva met Manik Sarkar, Chief Minister, Tripura and Manik Dey, state Power Minister. He said two months ago Sarkar requested ONGC to set up the urea plant on basis of which the survey was started. The gas-based thermal project at Palatana would start generation by May next year, he said, adding that in the first phase 363.3 MW would be generated by May 2012 and three months later another 363.3 MW would be generated.
