Government diverts gas from industry for CNG, PNG

NEW DELHI: The oil service has requested the redirection of petroleum gas from ventures to the city gas dissemination area to cool CNG and funneled cooking gas costs that have shot up by 70% on the utilization of imported fuel.


Under 90 days after it requested the utilization of costlier imported LNG to satisfy steady need for auto fuel CNG and family kitchen gas PNG, the service on August 10 returned to an old approach of basically providing locally delivered gas for city gas activities.


The distribution for city gas administrators like Indraprastha Gas in Delhi and Mahanagar Gas of Mumbai has been expanded from 17. 5 million standard cubic meters each day (mmscmd) to 20. 8 mmscmd, authorities said. The expanded allotment will fulfill 94% of the need for CNG to vehicles and channeled cooking gas to family kitchens in the country. Prior, 83-84% of the interest was met and the excess was met through the import of LNG by GAIL, they said.


Utilization of homegrown gas rather than imported fuel will cut down the expense of natural substance and simplicity CNG and PNG rates, authorities said.


The move follows a monstrous leap in CNG and PNG costs in the country over the most recent one year as administrators utilized costlier imported LNG. CNG costs in Delhi went up by a gigantic 74% (from Rs 43. 4 for every kg in July 2021 to Rs 75. 6 for every kg), while PNG costs rose by 70% (from Rs 29. 7 for every standard cubic meter to Rs 50. 6 for every scm).


Flammable gas is the natural substance utilized for CNG and PNG. This gas comes from fields like Mumbai High and Bassein in the Arabian Sea. As the homegrown creation of gas is deficient to meet every one of the necessities, the fuel is imported as LNGin ships.
