FACTBOX-Existing and proposed LNG terminals in India

    SINGAPORE, March 15 (Reuters) - India had four terminals receiving liquefied natural gas
last year, with total capacity of 30 million tonnes a year, although taking in 21 million to 23
million tonnes, up 10 to 13 percent from 2017, according to data from the Petroleum Planning and
Analysis Cell and shipping data. 
    Over the next seven years the government plans to build another 11 terminals. One of those
received its commissioning cargo this month, and at least two more are to start up or expand
later this year. 
    Apart from Indian Oil Corp's Ennore terminal in Tamil Nadu in southern India, state
power utility Gujarat State Petroleum Corp (GSPC) and Adani Group are adding a joint venture
terminal at Mundra in western India expected this year or next, and H-Energy is starting up its
Jaigarh terminal, also in the west, this year. 
    Philippines-based Atlantic, Gulf & Pacific Company (AG&P) is also adding new capacity next
year, and expansions are expected at Petronet LNG's Dahej terminal and Royal Dutch
Shell's Hazira terminal. 
    The additions and expansions will bring India's LNG import capacity to 41.5 million tonnes
this year, with import demand expected at 25 million to 26 million tonnes.     
    (Capacity in the table below is given in million tonnes per year.)
