INOX India Pvt Ltd (INOX) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Shell Energy India Pvt Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc, for partnering and developing the market for LNG supply by road from Shell's LNG terminal in Hazira (District Surat), Gujarat.

The MoU envisages deployment of distribution infrastructure including logistics and receiving facilities at customer end and will offer LNG access to the customers not connected to the pipelines. This will help in increasing the penetration and consumption of clean, reliable and cost-efficient LNG to commercial and industrial (C&I) users all over the country. The MoU also covers cooperation in developing a larger market for LNG as a transport fuel for long-haul heavy-duty trucks and buses.

Shell Energy India (SEI) owns and operates a 5 million tpy LNG receiving, storage and regasification terminal at Hazira in Gujarat. SEI is building a truck loading facility at its Hazira Terminal. This new partnership with INOX will help Shell to develop the market for LNG as a preferred fuel in the rapidly growing city gas distribution, LCNG and industrial sector as well as use of LNG as an auto fuel.

Announcing the MoU, Siddharth Jain, Executive Director, INOX India Pvt Ltd said, “Our partnership with Shell, underlines INOX's innovativeness and our futuristic approach. LNG is not only a clean and cost-effective fuel but is also safe and reliable. We are delighted that our collaborated efforts will make this green fuel more accessible. A larger gas-based industrial ecosystem augurs well with Indian economy as well as for the environment at the same time and is a win-win situation for all stakeholders.”

Speaking on the occasion, Ashwani Dudeja, Country Head, Shell Energy India added, “We look forward to working with INOX to deliver LNG by trucks and create access to LNG for customers not connected via pipeline. There is a growing demand for gas, the cleanest-burning fossil fuel, from the City Gas Distribution sector, commercial and industrial customers and as a fuel for heavy-duty transport. We are excited to explore this new segment and develop other such partnerships which will enable us to continue playing a key role in meeting India's long-term need for more and cleaner energy.”
