• GAIL plans to double capacity at its Dabhol LNG terminal

    GAIL is planning to more than double the capacity of its LNG terminal at Dabhol, Maharashtra, and build new terminals in the country to tap opportunities expected to emerge from the future growth in gas imports.

    The nation’s largest natural gasmarketer and transporter plans to raise the capacity of its Dabhol terminal to 12 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) in a phased manner by 2030-31, GAILchairman Sandeep Kumar Gupta told ET.

    The Dabhol terminal has a nameplate capacity of 5 mtpa but operates at about 2.9 mtpa as it remains idle during the monsoon season. The company is building a breakwater infrastructure, which will help the terminal operate also during monsoon.
    GAIL is also drawing up plans for new LNG import terminals but those are in the preliminary stages, Gupta said
