GAIL plans to double capacity of Dabhol LNG terminal

Indian state-owned natural gas company GAIL is planning to more than double the capacity of its LNG terminal at Dabhol, Maharashtra, reported the Economic Times.

By 2030–31, the expansion aims to raise the terminal’s capacity to 12 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) in a phased manner.

Currently, the Dabhol terminal has a nameplate capacity of 5mtpa; however, it operates at around 2.9mtpa as it remains idle during the monsoon season.

To address this, GAIL is constructing breakwater infrastructure to enable the terminal to operate throughout the year, including the monsoon period.

GAIL chairman Sandeep Kumar Gupta said: “Around half the current gas consumption is met by imports and the share is unlikely to come down by 2030. If more gas has to be imported, more terminals will be needed.”
