Adani, TotalEnergies nearing completion of Dhamra LNG terminal in India

India’s Adani and France’s TotalEnergies have almost completed their Dhamra LNG import facility located in Odisha, on India’s east coast.

This was revealed on Wednesday in a social media post by Total Adani, a 50/50 joint venture between the the two firms and the owner of the Dhamra LNG terminal.

ATPL and Dhamra LNG CEO, SatinderPal Singh, visited the Dhamra LNG terminal earlier this week to plan for commissioning of the new facility.

He also inspected the last remaining section of the interconnecting Dhamra-Angul pipeline built by state-owned GAIL, Total Adani said.

“We are days away from achieving mechanical completion of this historic LNG and gas infrastructure that will fill a critical gap in eastern India,” the JV said.

Dhamra LNG to become seventh operation terminal in India

A unit of TotalEnergies said in February last year that the facility was more than 70 percent complete as of December 2020.

Construction of the facility started back in 2018, with India’s Larsen & Toubro responsible for setting up the LNG tanks while Taiwan’s CTCI Corporation won the contract for the regasification package.

Designed for a capacity of 5 mtpa, the Dhamra terminal features two tanks of 180,000 cbm capacity, each. There is a potential to double the capacity to 10 mtpa.

In addition, the terminal’s jetty will be capable of receiving the world’s largest LNG carriers but also reloading smaller vessels. TotalEnergies and Adani also plan to distribute LNG via trucks to the region.

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

Following completion, this would be the seventh operational LNG terminal in India and second on the east coast.

At the moment, India imports LNG via six facilities with a combined capacity of about 42.7 million tonnes.

These include Petronet LNG’s Dahej and Kochi terminals and Shell’s Hazira terminal.
