India’s Dabhol terminal ups LNG deliveries

April 4, 2016

India’s Dabhol LNG import terminal has more than doubled the number of LNG cargoes it received during the fiscal year that ended in March, as compared to the same period a year ago.
The 5 mtpa Dabhol LNG terminal received 22 cargoes (1840 mmscm) during the fiscal year from April 2015 to March 2016, GAIL India, the country’s biggest natural gas supplier said on Monday.
The LNG plant received ten cargoes in the fiscal year that ended in March last year. It has been operating at about 60 percent of its capacity as it lacks infrastructure, such as breakwater and is not able to receive LNG tankers during monsoon rains.
The Dabhol LNG terminal, located some 340 km south of Mumbai is owned by Ratnagiri Gas and Power (RGPPL).
RGPPL is a joint venture of Gail and National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC), who are the major shareholders, with remaining equity held by financial institutions and Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB).
