India’s Adani and France’s TotalEnergies have started supplying natural gas to the grid from their Dhamra LNG import facility located in Odisha, on India’s east coast, as part of the terminal’s commissioning phase.

According to Adani Total, the 50/50 JV that operates the new LNG import terminal, the facility began sendout into GAIL’s network on April 18.

“Terminal performance tests will be concluded in the next couple of weeks, with commercial operations soon thereafter,” Adani Total said in a social media post.

LNG Prime reported on April 3 that the 138,273-cbm Milaha Ras Laffan delivered the commissioning cargo to the Dhamra LNG terminal from the giant Ras Laffan LNG complex, operated by Qatargas.

Qatargas sold the LNG cargo on a delivered ex-ship (DES) basis to French energy giant TotalEnergies, who delivered it to Adani Total.

Dhamra is home to India’s seventh operational LNG terminal, the second of its kind on the east coast of the country.

Moreover, the facility is Adani Total’s first LNG import terminal with a capacity of five million tonnes per annum (mtpa).

The terminal features two tanks of 170,000 cbm capacity each, while the facility’s jetty is capable of handling LNG carriers from 70,000 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) as well as GAIL.
