US-based company designs barge-based LNG facility for TN
The US-based VGS Group has completed the design of its second $400-million Floating LNG Regasification Unit (FRU) and
said it will start supplying gas to the Tamil Nadu market from 2016. “We have completed the feasibility study and design
of our second barge-based project for Tamil Nadu,” VGS Group President Gaurav Tiwari.
“It will be similar to VGS’s FRU project in Kakinada, which is scheduled to commence commercial operations in the first
quarter of 2015,” Tiwari said on the sidelines of the two-day CWC World LNG Series — Asia Pacific Summit. “We will
commence operation with a 4 million tonne per annum (mtpa) storage capacity at the terminal, and then increase it to
7.2 mtpa,” he said, pointing to the flexibility of the terminal in supporting supplies to the Indian market.
The terminal has attracted three players, including a leading power company in India, to store gas at the VGS terminal
on the East Coast of the country, said Tiwari.
The $400-million VGS East Coast India LNG Import Terminal would supply gas to the Andhra Pradesh market, especially
aiming to serve the 7-gigawatt of idling power generation capacity around Kakinada, which has not commenced
operations due to the shortage of fuel supply.
Tiwari said VGS’ floating regasification plant with a ship-based storage facility, located near the Kakinada Deepwater
Port, has become a global trendsetter in facilitating LNG supplies to consumers. The Indo-American VGS Group would
link the North American and Gulf Region's natural gas supply with its LNG import terminals on India’s heavily
industrialized yet gas-starved East Coast markets.
