BPCL Mangalore LNG Terminal is an LNG terminal under development in Karnataka, India.
Feasibility studies for the BPCL Mangalore LNG Terminal began in 2013 with plans for an initial receiving capacity of 2-3 mtpa, with an eventual capacity of 5 mtpa. The initial goal was to bring LNG to the area to replace the use of heavier fuels such as naphtha in industrial uses.
In October 2015, Bharat Petroleum scrapped plans to develop the terminal.
