LNG is the acronym for liquefied natural gas, that has been made over millions of years of transformation of organic materials, such as plankton and algae. Natural gas is 95% methane, which is actually the cleanest fossil fuel. The combustion of natural gas primarily emits water vapour and small amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). This implies that CO2 emissions are 30 to 50% lower than those produced by other combustible fuels.
LNG is touted as the Energy of the Future
LNG is a way to move natural gas long distances when pipeline transport is not feasible. In its compact liquid form, natural gas can be shipped in special tankers to terminals around the world. At these terminals, the LNG is returned to its gaseous state and transported by pipeline to distribution companies, industrial consumers, and power plants.
According to the International Energy Agency’s Sustainable Development Scenario, natural gas consumption will remain high in 2040, when the fuel is still expected to meet nearly a quarter of global energy demand. At Essar Ports, we’ve made it as a major focus of our strategy and our efforts to combat climate change.
Essar is setting up a 6.0 MMTPA LNG Terminal at Hazira. It comprises a floating storage unit, truck loading gantry and regasification facility to meet gas requirements of the steel industry and power industry as well as third party customers and LCNG fuel stations.
The LNG Terminal Project shall be implemented in 2 phases:
Phase-1: LNG Truck Loading Gantry and Regasification Unit
250mmscmd Regasification skid (2X125mmscmd) LNGS to rage Bullets, LPLNG Feed Pumps, Truck Loading Gantry(16 bays)
Phase-2: Regasification Facility (2MMTPA)
The Phase-2 project shall comprise of 250mmcsmd Regasification skid (2X125mmscmd)
