H-Energy’s AC LNG project secures NEB approval
December 31, 2015
An Asian plan to open an Atlantic Coast liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker terminal for U.S. and Canadian production advanced Wednesday, when the National Energy Board(NEB) granted the project a 25-year import/export license. The NEB authorized AC LNG Inc. a license to import up to 2.3 Bcf/d from the United States and to export up to 2 Bcf/d from a proposed terminal in Nova Scotia (NS). AC is a Halifax subsidiary of Hiranandani Group of Mumbai, India.
The permit would allow the terminal to deal in a variable blend of U.S. and Canadian gas that would become available when Spectra Energy reverses the flow on Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline (M&NE) to northbound from southbound, AC told the NEB. “Ultimately New Brunswick and Nova Scotia will import gas from the United States with the gas flowing over [M&NE] irrespective of the [LNG] project,” AC stated.
An open season of flow reversal delivery service has been held, but no date for the change has been announced. AC earlier this year submitted an application to the NEB to import gas from the United States into Eastern Canada and then export it from a facility in Middle Melford, NS. The application sought to export up to 15.5 million metric tons (mmt) a year of LNG. At full build-out the facility as envisioned would include two marine jetties and LNG loading facilities.
No dates have been set for starting the forecast overhaul of the Atlantic Canadian gas trade, construction of AC’s proposed terminal, conversion of Canaport into an export outlet, or full reversal of M&NE. The LNG projects have also not yet identified gas sources or overseas customers.

KoPT Awards FSRU Project to a Consortium of H-Energy Private Limited and Excelerate Energy
September 2, 2015
The Kolkata Port Trust (KoPT), on 10th August, 2015, has sent the Letter of Award(LoA) to a Consortium of H-Energy Private Limited (HEPL) and Excelerate Energy(Excelerate), for setting up a 4.0 MMTPA Floating Storage and Regasification Unit(FSRU) in the offshore Digha region of West Bengal. “It was the culmination of a tendering process initiated by the Kolkata Port Trust in September, 2014,” said Mr. Darshan Hiranandani, CEO, HEPL.
HEPL and Excelerate will pioneer an offshore FSRU operation in India by setting up this facility, where the end-consumers and marketers will book the capacity to unload, store, regasify and transport LNG to an Onshore Receiving Facility (ORF) atContai in Purba Medinipur — West Bengal, through a subsea pipeline.
Expressing satisfaction on the development, Mr. Darshan Hiranandani commented, “On behalf of HEPL and Excelerate, I would like to thank KoPT for reposing confidence in our Consortium. We believe that our Project has the requisite potential to act as a gateway for introducing an environmentally friendly and attractively priced source of energy i.e. natural gas to West Bengal, Odisha andWestern Bangladesh.
Mr. Darshan Hiranandani further said that in order to facilitate connectivity of the proposed FSRU to gas markets, HEPL had already submitted an Expression of Interest (EoI) to the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) for laying of a 705 km Natural Gas pipeline, which will extend from Paradip in Odishato Contai in West Bengal to Dattapulia on the India-Bangladesh border. “We believe that this pipeline in addition to serving natural gas markets in Eastern India will act as a catalyst for stronger trade relations between India and neighboringBangladesh,” he said.
The Project and the proposed gas pipeline infrastructure will promote rapid economic growth in Eastern India in a sustainable manner by assuring supply of a clean fuel to industrial, commercial and domestic consumers in the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha and Western Bangladesh, said Mr. Darshan Hiranandani, adding that the project will help generate direct and indirect employment through development of all major gas based industrial units such as power, fertilizer, refineries and petrochemicals, small and medium scale industries and city gas distribution networks in the region.
