Hiranandani Energy (H-Energy) is setting up a LNG re-gasification project at Jaigarh, India, starting with the construction work of a jetty for the floating regasification and storage unit (FRSU) at the port.

The 4 mmtpa capacity terminal is being developed with JSW Jaigarh Port and will ultimately be expanded to 8 mmtpa.

In addition to the FRSU, H-Energy has also confirmed that work has started on the Jaigarh to Dabhol tie-in pipeline which will carry re-gasified LNG to the Natural Gas Grid of GAIL at Dabhol.

The partnership between H-Energy and the port has been called a major step in the development of LNG infrastructure for importing natural gas into the country.

According to the agreement, the port is managing the construction of the civil jetty works and the design has been appointed to L&T Infrastructure Engineering Ltd.

India.com news agency said that three bidders have been shortlisted to operate the terminal, but these are as yet unconfirmed. The successful bidder is due to be announced imminently though.

The LNG regasification project is to be implemented in two phases. Phase 1 consists of the jetty based FSRU.

Phase 2 consists of a land based regasification terminal with an ultimate capacity of 8.0 mmtpa which is in the planning stages. The second phase will be implemented after the successful completion and stabilisation of the first phase of the project. Commercial operations at the facility are due to start before December 2018.
