PLL to regasify LNG at Dahej

Tuesday, February 06, 2007
Maharashtra said the LNG pipeline for supplying gas to the beleaguered Ratnagiri power plant would be completed by April this year. Petronet LNG (PLL) has been given the responsibility of procuring 1.5 million tonnes per annum of LNG on spot basis for 'short-term' supplies. Up to September 2009, LNG will be re-gasified by PLL at its Dahej plant in Gujarat and gas would be transported through the pipeline connecting Ratnagiri to Dahej.

Gail India is building the 575 km pipeline connecting LNG import terminals owned by Shell and Petronet on India's west coast to the plant at dabhol. The pipeline has been delayed for more than two years because of a legal dispute between GAIL and a contractor and farmers' objections to the use of arable land. The 2,184 MW Dabhol power plant has never worked at more than one-third of capacity because of Enron's collapse, disputes over power price and lack of gas for the furnaces. Source: Newsline
