The entry of a private player in the state, which was previously estimated to have huge natural gas reserves, is likely to disrupt the existing gas-based business scenario. However, ONGC Tripura Asset officials declined to comment on the issue.
The ULFA faction, in a statement e-mailed to media offices here on Monday, held North-Eastern Electric Power Corporation (NEEPCO) responsible for the recent floods in Lakhimpur district, and asked it to leave Assam, and said NHPC’s Lower Subansiri hydel project would cause a much bigger disaster.
NEEPCO operates five hydro, three thermal and one solar power stations with combined installed capacity of 1,251 MW. The company posted a standalone net profit of Rs 372.55 crore for the year ended March 2016, against a profit of Rs 318.54 in the previous financial year.
