Reuters are reporting that a 5 million tpy LNG import terminal at Mundra on the west coast of India will likely be operational in April or May.
The terminal will have receiving, storage and regasification facilities for LNG and will be connected to Gujarat State Petronet’s existing pipeline network at Anjaar, Gujarat.
Construction on the terminal is completed, but Adani is unable to commission operations due to issues with a 90 km section of pipeline.
Adani is also planning to build a 5 million tpy LNG terminal at Dharma on the east coast of India.
Adani’s plans are in line with a broad push in India to more than double the share natural gas has in the country’s energy mix to 15% by 2022.
India has four LNG terminals now and imports around 20 million tpy of LNG, but the government plans to build another 11 terminals over the next seven years.
