India’s new Mundra LNG terminal ramps up utilisation as demand rises

Having begun operations earlier this year, India’s new liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal at Mundra is expected to boost utilisation from 45% currently to 55% within four to six months, a senior company official said on Friday.

Jointly owned by Gujarat State Petroleum Corp (GSPC) and Adani Group through GSPC LNG, the terminal in western Gujarat has annual capacity of five million tonnes, and its current throughput is running at over 2.2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), GSPC’s managing director Sanjeev Kumar told Reuters.

The terminal in the western state of Gujarat is currently connected to Anjar in southern Kutch — which is about 40 kilometres away from Kandla port — through a gas pipeline that has a diameter of 32-inches.

Another pipeline connecting Anjar to Banaskantha district in Gujarat only has a diameter of 18-inches, which limits the terminal’s utilisation.
