Haldia LNG Terminal is an LNG terminal under development in West Bengal, India.
In 2017, Essar Ports, part of the Essar Group, won the bid to build a future LNG regasification terminal in Haldia with a 1.0 mtpa receiving capacity. The Haldia LNG Terminal is expected to be completed in two years, or 2019.
In January 2019 it was reported that construction would begin in June 2019 and be complete by the end of 2020, at a cost of 1,500 crore ($277 million). However, there have been no development updates since then and the project is presumed to be shelved.
