Background

Dhabol LNG Terminal is an LNG terminal in Maharashtra, India.[2]

Commissioned in early 2013, Dhabol LNG Terminal consists of three 160,000 cubic meter storage tanks and a receiving capacity of 5 mtpa and provides access to natural gas to India’s southern and western states.[3] Future expansion of the terminal has been put on hold since 2014 due to low capacity utilisation of the terminal because of high LNG prices and lack of breakwater infrastructure to receive tankers during the monsoon season.[4][5] As of 2017, the terminal cannot operate during the monsoon season, but plans for a breakwater project is estimated to be completed in 2019.[6]

In 2020 the Dabhol LNG terminal in Maharashtra commissioned its third 160,000 m3 LNG storage tank. In June, the breakwater construction contract was awarded to Larson and Toubro. It is expected that a fully functional breakwater would be ready by 2022-2023 which will allow the terminal to be fully operational throughout the year.[1]
