West Coast Project

Project Overview

H-Energy is setting up an LNG re-gasification project at Jaigarh in the State of Maharashtra. The project is to be implemented in 2 phases. Phase – I will consist of a jetty based FSRU of 4.0 mmtpa capacity, which is expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2018. In Phase-II a land based regasification terminal with an ultimate capacity of 8.0 mmtpa has been planned. This terminal will be implemented after the successful completion and stabilization of Phase-I.
H-Energy is in an advanced stage of execution of Phase-I of the project. Jetty construction work for the project has commenced at Jaigarh Port and it is expected to be completed by Q-4 2018. The company has acquired land for the onshore receiving facility close to the Jetty where the FSRU will be moored and has started work on the Jaigarh to Dabhol tie-in pipeline which will carry re-gasified LNG to the Natural Gas Grid of GAIL at Dabhol. The company has kicked off two major milestone of the re-gasification project by signing FSRU agreement with ENGIE for chartering its FSRU for a minimum period of 5 years and has also awarded the EPCM contract to Engineers India Ltd (EIL) for constructing 60 km tie-in pipeline from Jaigarh port to Dabhol. The terminal is expected to commence its commercial operations by Q4 2018.

About Jaigarh Port

JSW Jaigarh Port is an SPV of JSW Infrastructure. It has entered into a concession agreement with the Government of Maharashtra. Currently, the port is fully operational with 2 berths, having a cargo handling capacity of 15 million tonnes per annum.

JSW Jaigarh Port is an existing all-weather deep water port which provides tranquil marine conditions for berthing LNG vessels up to Q-max size. The port has an existing breakwater which ensures continuous berthing operations throughout the year. The location of the LNG terminal thus provides significant benefits and flexibility to the customers; bringing in a wide range of vessels from the LNG carrier fleet.

H-Energy Gateway Private Limited has entered into a Port Service Agreement and Sub-Concession Agreement with JSW Jaigarh Port or Ratnagiri (JSW Port)-Jetty Based Berth for setting up an LNG regasification terminal at the Port.


Port Infrastructure and Facilities:

• All weather deep water port
• Short approach channel of 1.6 nautical miles
• Port is presently handling bulk cargo vessels upto Panamax capacities
• Draft of 14.1 m all along the approach channel, sufficient to handle Q-max size LNG vessels
• Breakwater of approximately 500 m length already constructed, providing sufficient tranquil conditions at the LNG berth
• Year-round operations with night navigation facilities available at the port


Port Responsibilities:
• Maintenance of breakwater
• Maintenance of approach channel, turning basin, LNG berth, Jetty Based Berth
• Capital & Maintenance dredging at approach channel, turning basin and LNG berth pocket
• Maintenance and operation of tugs
• Pilotage and Mooring
• Construction of LNG jetty sub-structure


The LNG terminal project is located at JSW Jaigarh Port near Ratnagiri, Maharashtra. The Port is inside the Damankul Bay off the Jaigarh head. The Damankul Bay lies between latitudes 17° 18′ 00″ and 17°,18′ 18″ North and longitudes 73° 12′ and 73° 13′ East. The Port is located 55 KM from Ratnagiri district.

West Coast Tie- In pipeline project


The 60 km natural gas pipeline (Tie-in line) will connect Jaigarh LNG receiving terminal to two major natural gas pipeline networks, namely Dabhol-Bangalore Pipeline (DBPL) and Dahej-Uran-Panvel-Dabhol Pipeline (DUPL-DPPL) at Dabhol, Maharashtra. This pipeline will connect the Jaigarh LNG-receiving terminal to markets along these pipeline networks. In May 2015, the pipeline regulator (PNGRB) authorized H-Energy Gateway Private Limited to build and operate the pipeline.
