Shapoorji Pallonji Group bids for LNG regasification terminal

28 August 2017 | Mumbai


The Shapoorji Pallonji Group has submitted a bid to build an LNG regasification terminal at the Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT).

Shapoorji Pallonji Infrastructure Capital Company Limited (SP Infra), a unit of the Mumbai-based conglomerate, is one of the two entities that have submitted bids to develop a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) that can load 3.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG at Mumbai Port.

Unlike a conventional, high-cost LNG regasification terminal, a floating unit is a cost-effective and faster way to secure energy supplies.

It allows loaded LNG carriers to dock alongside for a ship-to-ship transfer of LNG.

The Mumbai Port Trust LNG FSRU, estimated to cost over INR 2,690 crore, including INR 1,500 crore for an FSRU vessel, has received environment and coastal regulation zone (CRZ) clearances from the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.

A Mumbai Port Trust spokesman said Cabinet approval for the project is awaited ahead of finalising the tender, and confirmed that Shapoorji Pallonji has placed a bid for the same.

SP Infra has also acquired a 60% stake in Gopalpur Ports Limited, the entity that runs a port at Gopalpur in Odisha’s Ganjam district.

The acquisition value has not been made public yet. The Port’s master plan is designed to handle 40 million tonnes of cargo in three phases.
