NTPC and GAIL may exit Dabhol project if LNG terminal is sold

NTPC and GAIL may exit Dabhol project if LNG terminal is sold

NTPC Ltd and Gail India is likely to exit the beleaguered Dabhol power project ( Now known as Ratnagiri Gas & Power Pvt Ltd (RGPPL)) in Maharashtra if the government hives off the adjacent LNG import terminal and sells it to a third party. The boards of the two companies have said the power project is viable only if the LNG terminal is included in the total project. Both the boards have asked the government to protect their equity in the event the LNG terminal is sold off.

The NTPC board in a recent meeting has resolved that LNG terminal should be maintained as an integral part of the power plant to get maximum benefits out of the project. It has also decided that in the event of a sell off, the promoters’ equity need to be protected, an official source said. A similar resolution was passed by the co-promoter Gail board recently.
