 Indian Oil Corp (IOC) has awarded a contract to build two football stadium-sized liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tanks at its upcoming Ennore LNG import terminal in Tamil Nadu to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Pvt Ltd (MHI) of Japan.   "We have received an EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) order from Indian Oil  to construct two LNG storage tanks. The LNG tanks will be the main facility at the first LNG receiving terminal to be constructed on India's east coast. This is also the first LNG storage tank order that MHI has received from India. Construction of the tanks is slated to begin in July of this year; completion is scheduled for the spring of 2018," says a statement from MHI.   The ordered LNG tanks are high-capacity storage tanks capable of holding 180,000m3 each and will be installed at an LNG terminal that IndianOil will build near Ennore port, approximately 25 kilometers north of Chennai on the Bay of Bengal.    LNG imported to the terminal will be supplied as feedstock to fertilizer plants, and to utility company power generation plants for use as an alternative fuel. Plans also call for the use of LNG as city gas in urban areas in the future. The terminal will initially have the capacity to handle five million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA), expanding to 15 MMTPA in the future.
