APGIC is an instrument to fulfill this dream of Government of Andhra Pradesh.

As a special purpose vehicle, APGIC as a magnificent thruster made its entry in to upstream, midstream and downstream activities for utilization of abundant Natural Gas available in the East Coast.

APGIC, from the day of its inception on 2nd Sep 2009 through its fabulous endeavour formed consortium with Oil and Gas Majors like ONGC, BG, OIL, and NTPC, bagged three numbers of Shallow water and one number of deep water blocks in KG basin through global bidding of NELP VIII.

While continuing its zeal, APGIC, retained Mecon Limited, Delhi as its Project Management Consultant to roll out state wide Natural Gas Pipeline Grid and City Gas Distribution.
