Petronet LNG at pole position, for now

Feb 18: Why is it that despite emerging competition, Petronet LNG's Dahej LNG project continues to remain a winner

Petronet LNG at pole position, for now

Feb 18: Why is it that despite emerging competition, Petronet LNG's Dahej LNG project continues to remain a winner
8Despite the Mundra facility being ready since Oct’18, not a single cargo has been received at Mundra. What is more, the pipeline evacuation capacity is limited
8H-Energy’s 4mmtpa FSRU has been delayed as the 60km pipeline linking it to GAIL’s existing network is not yet ready.
8Upcoming Ennore LNG has problems of its own.
8This means that Petronet LNG's Dahej terminal remains the lowest-cost LNG terminal due to brownfield expansion, which has come at a fraction of green-field capacities.
8But in the face of rising gas demand, it is only a matter of time before new capacity begin spinning of LNG
