Central Govt asks Reliance to supply LNG to Dabhol - NTPC objects

Central Govt asks Reliance to supply LNG to Dabhol - NTPC objects

Government has asked Reliance Industries to supply natural gas from its eastern offshore KG-D6 fields to the beleaguered Dabhol power plant in Maharashtra. An Empowered Group of Ministers on pricing and utilisation of natural gas, headed by External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee, at a meeting last month decided that Ratnagiri Gas and Power Pvt Ltd, the owner of Dabhol power plant, will get 1.4 million standard cubic meters per day of gas from KG-D6 from January 2009.This quantity will rise to 2.7 mmscmd from April and the plants full requirement of 8.5 mmscmd would be met from September 2009.

Reliance is to begin production from its prolific KG-D6 fields lying off the Andhra coast in January 2009 with an initial output of 5 mmscmd. This will rise to 25 mmscmd by March and to 55 mmscmd by July 2009. Dabhol, at present, gets about 5.4 mmscmd of imported gas for two of its three units at USD 4.98 per million British thermal unit. Petronet LNG imports 1.5 million tonnes a year of LNG from RasGas of Qatar at USD 8.5 per mmBtu but since this price is too high, the rates are averaged with cheaper long-term LNG imports to arrive at USD 4.98 per mmBtu. "As an alternate, KG-D6 will now be sold to Dabhol at Government approved rates of USD 4.20 per mmBtu," he said.
