The world's first CNG port terminal

The world's first CNG port terminal

Gujarat Government has given its nod to the world's first CNG port terminal at Bhavnagar. The U.K. based Foresight group and Mumbai based Padmanabh Mafatlal group joint venture will invest Rs.1900 Crore in setting up a CNG port terminal at Bhavnagar port.

Key Points:

  • The CNG port terminal will have an annual capacity of 6 million metric ton, which will increase the total handling capacity of the port to 9 million metric ton. MoU for this project between Gujarat government arm-Gujarat Maritime Board and London based Foresight Group was signed during the 2019 Vibrant Gujarat summit.
  • The new facility will be developed in the Northen side of the port, under which container terminal, Ro-Ro terminal and the liquid terminal will be developed in the future.
  • The GMB will manage the existing port at Bhavnagar, which has the capacity to handle three MMTPA cargo. The new terminals would take the overall capacity to nine MMTPA.
