  • (1888PressRelease) January 22, 2016 - Shell, which set up a 5 million tonne LNG terminal at Hazira in Gujarat nearly a decade back, is aiming to grab a bigger share of the growing demand for imported gas in India. The Hague-based global energy giant is planning to set up a Floating LNG facility on the east coast - at Kakinada in Andhra Pradesh. Recently, Andhra Pradesh Gas Distribution Corporation (APGDC), GDF Suez, Shell and GAIL have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to set up a Floating LNG terminal with an initial capacity of 5 mt, which could be doubled at a later stage.
