INDIA: Pradip-Haldia pipeline online in four weeks

The 217-mile pipeline of India's largest refiner, Indian Oil Corp., will be sending crude from Paradip to Haldia within three to four weeks.

IOC Chairman Sarthak Behuria affirmed the start date Saturday in Kolkata, formerly Calcutta, the capital of the state of West Bengal, the Press Trust of India reports.

The $299 million project will cut transportation costs as ships off the coast of Paradip, in Orissa state, load crude heading to the West Bengal city of Haldia.
