GAIL moots `industry gas plan' for timely supplies

Our Bureau

New Delhi , Jan. 11

GAIL (India) has proposed developing an `Industry Gas Plan' for closer interaction between the suppliers and the shippers to ensure timely supplies to the customers.

"The Industry Gas Plan meetings may be held on a monthly basis. During the monthly meetings, each supplier of natural gas will table next month's firm availability of gas from each source of supply," a company press release said here.

According to the release, indication for any planned shutdown during the next three months would also be provided and source-wise linkages for the distribution of available gas would be finalised.

"GAIL believes this would help in handling the supply and distribution of regassified LNG and natural gas in an organised manner," it said.

Currently, gas is being supplied from different points for the transportation by GAIL through its Hazira-Bijapur-Jagdishpur (HBJ) pipeline and eight regional pipelines.

"Based on the availability, shippers can draw distribution plan, which in turn will help them plan day to day operations in a better way and provide better service to the customers," the release said.

The current gas consumption in the country is around 73 million standard cubic metres per day (mmscmd), including 64 mmscmd of APM and 9 mmscmd of R-LNG.

"With the introduction of R-LNG, the day-to-day operating issues regarding the availability of gas and its distribution are requiring more co-ordination for ensuring uninterrupted supplies of natural gas," it added.
