On 16 October 2018, Adani and TotalEnergies announced the beginning of a new partnership to develop sustainable energy projects for the Indian market. This project involved setting up a LNG import and regasification terminal on the East Coast of India, which is the seventh operational LNG terminal in India and second on the East Coast.
Dhamra LNG Terminal Private Limited (DLTPL) completed the commissioning of the terminal on 6 May 2023 and is ready to receive commercial cargoes. DLTPL is a 100% subsidiary of Adani Total Private Limited (ATPL), which is a 50:50 joint venture between Adani and TotalEnergies.
DLTPL will play a significant role in helping meet India’s target of 15% share of Natural Gas in its primary energy mix by 2030. DLTPL has entered into a 20-year LNG regasification agreement with Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) and GAIL (India) Limited (GAIL). The terminal will act as a primary source of natural gas supply to the JHBDPL (Jagdishpur Haldia Bokaro Dhamra Pipeline), also referred as the Urja Ganga Gas Pipeline network, which transverses across multiple geographies over its length of 2,800 kms. It will cater to energy requirements of Eastern Indian states like Assam, Bihar, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal.
