Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ), India's leading port infrastructure developer and part of the Adani Group, today said it had signed a long term agreement with GAIL (India), the state run gas company, to provide Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) regasification services on a use or pay basis, at its upcoming LNG import terminal at Dhamra in Odisha.

As per the contract, GAIL (Q,N,C,F)* India has booked 1.5 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) regasification capacity for a period of 20 years. GAIL plans to supply the gas to its portfolio of customers located in the eastern region and along the under development Jagdishpur-Haldia gas grid.

''Partnering with GAIL India for facilitating LNG imports is a notable milestone for Adani Ports. (Q,N,C,F)* This project is now close to being fully subscribed and will play a pioneering role in powering eastern India towards a prosperous and economical gas based future.  It will also become a hub for supply to Bangladesh and Myanmar,'' said Karan Adani, CEO, APSEZ.

The foundation stone of the project was laid on July’17 and construction has commenced by Larsen & Toubro, a leading infrastructure firm, winning the contract to set up the tankages for gas storage and by CTCI Corporation, a Taiwanese firm, that has won the contract for the regasification package. The terminal is expected to be commissioned during the second half of 2021.

The proposed Dhamra LNG import terminal is designed for an initial capacity of 5 MTPA, expandable up to 10 MTPA. Initially, it will have two full containment type tanks of 180,000 m3 capacity each.  It will be first of its kind in India and second LNG terminal on the east coast after IOC's Ennore terminal in Tamilnadu. 

It will have a jetty capable of handling a wide range of LNG supply vessels, including the largest Q-max fleet from Qatar. The terminal will be capable of reloading LNG to service proximate markets via the marine route and will also have truck loading gantries to help grow the nascent but exciting LNG by truck market.

Shares of the company gained Rs 0.05, or 0.01%, to trade at Rs 400.05. The total volume of shares traded was 24,096 at the BSE (9.18 a.m., Friday).
