Pipeline Construction, LNG Terminal Start-Up Delayed in India

Indian natural gas company H-Energy will delay the start of its LNG import terminal at Jaigarh until the fourth quarter, company CEO Darshan Hiranandani, told Reuters. 

When completed the project will connect to the national gas grid at Dabhol through a 36-mile pipeline, which is expected to also be ready by the fourth quarter.

H-Energy, a unit of real estate group Hiranandani, initially planned to start full commercial operations at the new floating LNG terminal on India’s west coast, by the fourth quarter of 2018, but later pushed this back to the first quarter of this year.

The terminal is a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) capable of handling 4 mtpa of LNG.

The company is also building a 400-mile pipeline connecting Jaigarh to Mangalore, which will likely be ready by 2023, Hiranandani said. Work on that pipeline has been moving slower than expected due to a road highway widening in the region. P&GJ
