The oil and gas sector is one of the core sector in India and plays a major role in influencing decision making for all the other important sections of the economy. The Government of India has adopted several projects and policies to fulfil the increasing demand of oil and natural gas. This paper investigates critical factors in laying of MDPE pipeline and GI work facing by city gas distribution Company in Mumbai. The success of any project depends on three major aspects i.e. cost, quality and time. Time delays lead to increase in variable cost of the project and non-attainment of the targets. In addition to this major constraints scope, resource and risk play significant role. Mumbai is a vast city to convert under PNG connection, daily hundreds of requests for new gas connection pool the system. In order to achieve this huge target proper planning and execution is needed. This report categorizes various phases of project in Gas Company providing domestic gas and analyzes critical factors associated with them with possible solutions. A discussion with people from different areas like ZICs, AICs, Contractors, TPEs and Plumbers, their perceptions have been taken with the help of questionnaires. The need for change in methods of doing work have been discussed to improve the existing ones. There are also various social, political and other internal factors which affects the project completion time. Though the effect of these factors can’t be eliminated completely yet it can be minimized to spur the quality work.
