Mumbai-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) re-gasification terminal developer H-Energy inaugurated India’s first First Floating Storage Re-Gasification Unit (FSRU) based LNG Terminal on Monday.
The 4 million metric tonne per annum (MMTPA) capacity FSRU is located at Jaigarh Port in Maharashtra and is scheduled for commercial operations by Q4 2018.
The LNG terminal will offer storage, re-gasification, re-loading, fuel bunkering and truck loading facilities.
“We are happy to see our vision turning into reality,” says Darshan Hiranandani, MD & CEO, H-Energy.
“Inaugurating the first FSRU project and Jetty infrastructure is a key milestone towards completion of this LNG terminal project.
“The FSRU-led approach will usher a sectoral change in terms of reducing the time taken for commissioning such re-gasification projects.
“This project enables H-Energy to become a large scale provider of natural gas to India, a much desired green fuel.”
