AG&P To Develop Major LNG Import Terminal In India

The Karaikal Port is a deep-water facility located on the east coast of India. Since commencing operations in 2009, the Port has handled over 46 million t of multi-cargo and received over 1400 commercial vessels. As part of the Port’s expansion beyond commercial cargos, the Port allocated an area within its existing breakwater to develop an LNG terminal to serve power, industrial and other customers in the region. The Port received its Environmental Approval (EA) for this LNG terminal development in May 2017.

“Karaikal Port is a center of trading for Southeast India and is crucial to the region’s GDP. With the addition of AG&P’s LNG import terminal, Karaikal Port will continue to be an engine of growth for the region’s future. Offering an all-weather operation with a breakwater ensuring 99% availability, night navigation, limited dredging requirements, proximity to GAIL’s existing Cauvery Basin gas pipeline network and 24/7 access to port services, we are immensely proud of the Port’s facilities that attracted AG&P to this prime site,” said Mr. GRK Reddy, Chairman and Promoter Director of KPPL.
