Petronet LNG Ltd. plans to raise its base capacity for liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports from 2.5 million today to 17.5 million tons at two terminals by 2014.

It is building another LNG terminal, India's third, at Kochi in southern India with a capacity of 2.5 million tons. Dasgupta said the new terminal, along with an initial expansion of Dahej to 10 million tons, would be complete by 2009 or 2010.
