India’s demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) is set to rise by about 10% in 2020. Currently, there are four terminals receiving LNG, consuming ~23 million tonnes of the super-chilled fuel. The government is planning to include 11 more terminals in the next 15 years. This demand is strongly driven by the expanding City Gas Distribution network and CNG Vehicles.
India is showing strong commitment towards increasing its share of natural gas to 15% by 2030. All major players including Shell, TOTAL, Saudi Aramco, AG&P etc. have shown interest in investing into India’s natural gas future. However, setting up a full-fledged LNG regasification terminal comes with its own set of challenges. Knowledge of potential consumers, identification of demand centres, connectivity to the national gas grid are some of the major concerns an investor might face in monetizing its imported LNG.
