India boosts LNG imports in November

India’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports rose in November compared to the same month last year, according to the preliminary data from the oil ministry’s Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell.

The country imported about 2.34 billion cubic meters, or about 1.8 million tonnes of LNG, in November, a rise of 5.3 percent compared to the same month in 2022, PPAC said.

During April-November, India took 20.09 bcm of LNG, or some 15.4 million tonnes, up by 12.4 percent, PPAC said.

India paid $1.2 billion for November LNG imports, down from $1.5 billion last year, it said.

As per India’s natural gas production, it reached 3.04 bcm in November, up by 7.1 percent compared to the corresponding month of the previous year.

During April-November gas production rose by 5.1 percent to about 24 bcm, PPAC said.

At the moment, India imports LNG via seven facilities with a combined capacity of about 47.7 million tonnes.

India’s Adani and France’s TotalEnergies started supplying natural gas in April to the grid from their 5 mtpa Dhamra LNG import facility located in Odisha, on India’s east coast. In August, the partners completed the first truck loading operation at the facility.

During April-October, Petronet LNG’s 17.5 mtpa Dahej terminal operated at 95.1 percent capacity, while Shell’s 5 mtpa Hazira terminal operated at 37.1 percent capacity, PPAC said.

The Dhamra LNG terminal operated at 26 percent capacity, it said.
