Kakinada LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Andhra Pradesh, India. It was proposed to import LNG through Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU).
The future of the Kakinada LNG project is uncertain. In May 2017, Engie and Shell pulled out of the project. Engie and Shell Indian insisted on a guaranteed minimum volume to reach a final investment decision.
As of April 2020 there has been no further progress and the project appears to be shelved.
