GAIL, IOCL ink MoU for cooperation in Petrochemicals
GAIL (India) Limited and Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for cooperation in the area of Petrochemicals to collaborate for exploring the possibility of setting up of cracker complex including downstream derivatives at Barauni.
GAIL shall assess the
prospect of natural gas availability from the
KG basin field
including the potentiality of the rich gas to be used as part of
the feedstock for the Project and work out the modality for
distribution of the same from KG basin field to the Project site.
GAIL will subsequently develop appropriate definitive agreement
for supply of the gas to the joint venture, once formed.
IndianOil shall assess the prospect of availability of off-gas and naphtha not only from Barauni refinery but also from other operating refineries of IndianOil, to be used as predominant feedstock for the said Project and work out the modality for positioning of the same to the Project location. IndianOil will subsequently develop appropriate definitive agreement(s) for supply of the feedstocks to the joint venture, once formed
The proposed chemical plant will use 250,000 tonne of naphtha produced by IOC's Barauni refinery and the natural gas that GAIL plans to bring from eastern offshore and imported LNG through the planned Jagdishpur-Haldia pipeline.
Project structure and equity participation has not yet been decided. "It could be a 50:50 joint venture between Gail and IOC... it may also be a public-private partnership," Choubey said indicating that the alliance had room to induct a strategic partner.
A 130-km spur line from Gaya to Barauni would be laid to transport gas to Barauni fertiliser plant, IOC's refinery and the proposed petrochemical unit. Gail's Jagdishpur-Haldia pipeline would transport gas found in eastern offshore.
