India’s Dhamra LNG terminal received 20 cargoes in first year of operations

India’s Adani and France’s TotalEnergies have received 20 shipments at their Dhamra LNG import facility located in Odisha, on India’s east coast, since the terminal’s launch last year.

Adani Total, the 50/50 JV that operates the LNG import terminal, revealed this in a social media update reflecting the first year of commercial operations.

LNG Prime reported on April 3, 2024 that the 138,273-cbm Milaha Ras Laffan had delivered the commissioning cargo to the Dhamra LNG terminal from the giant Ras Laffan LNG complex in Qatar, operated by QatarEnergy LNG, previously know as Qatargas.

The Dhamra LNG terminal started supplying natural gas to the grid on April 18, 2024 as part of the commissioning phase.

Adani Total said that the first commercial LNG cargo arrived at the facility on May 22, 2024 onboard the 2008-built 165,500, Seapeak Methane.

The terminal received in total 20 cargoes and “exceeded 50 percent of the first year contractual capacity,” the JV said.

Dhamra LNG has regasified nearly 63 TBTU of LNG during the period, Adani Total said.

Besides regasification, the JV completed the first truck loading operation at the facility in August last year.

Dhamra LNG has “achieved more than 50 percent truck loadings with 100 percent availability and reliability in tis first year,” Adani Total said.

According to data by PPAC, the Dhamra LNG terminal operated at 27.4 percent capacity during April 2023-March 2024.

This facility is India’s seventh operational LNG terminal and the second of its kind on the east coast of the country.

It has a capacity of five million tonnes per annum (mtpa), with plans to double it in the future.

Dhamra LNG features two tanks of 170,000 cbm capacity each, while the facility’s jetty is capable of handling LNG carriers from 70,000 cbm to 265,000 cbm capacity.

As per capacity takers, the JV entered into 20-year LNG regasification agreements with state-owned Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) and GAIL.
