GAIL to enter distributed LNG production business

The project is envisaged to provide a thrust to Government of India's focused initiatives to increase the share of natural gas in the primary energy basket

  • By ICN Bureau | June 23, 2022

In a first-of-its kind endeavour in the country, GAIL (India) Limited plans to enter into distributed Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production with the vision to cater the demand from off-grid locations and transport sector.

GAIL has placed an order for two small-scale liquefaction skids capable of producing LNG on a pilot basis. Liquefaction will be achieved through proprietary technology-based mobile liquefaction skids.

These plants will help in distribution of natural gas through liquefaction in new CGD areas, liquefaction of gas at isolated fields and will support setting-up of LNG fueling stations and in bunkering. It will be first of its kind in the country to introduce portable and scalable liquefaction units.

The project is envisaged to provide a thrust to Government of India's focused initiatives to increase the share of natural gas in the primary energy basket. Further, GAIL is also under discussions for manufacturing of liquefaction skids in India.
