GAS-Based Power Plants in the Country

New Delhi: April 30,2013

 

As on 31st March, 2013, there are 53 gas based power plants totalling to a capacity of 17721.47 MW. Power generation from gas-based power plants has been affected due to short supply of gas. Government is making all out efforts for additional availability of gas to power plants and taking necessary steps to increase domestic production of gas in the country and a multi-pronged strategy have also been adopted by the Government to augment gas supplies and bridge the gap between supply and demand for the domestic market including that for power sector which includes:-

 

Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MOP&NG) is taking necessary steps to increase availability of gas from domestic sources by awarding gas blocks for Exploration & Production (E&P) activities in various sedimentary basins of the country under the New Exploration Licensing Policy (NELP).

MOP&NG is encouraging import of gas in the form of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and also making efforts for import of gas through international pipelines projects.

In order to explore and produce new sources of natural gas from coal bearing areas, Government has formulated a Coal Bed Methane (CBM) Policy providing attractive fiscal and contractual framework for exploration and production of CBM in the country.

Government is encouraging Under Ground Coal Gasification (UGCG) and coal liquification and investment by private entrepreneurs in development of these frontier technologies.

 

Also MOP&NG on 01.01.2013 has issued Guidelines on Clubbing/Diversion of gas between power plants of same owner to enable use of domestic gas more efficiently to improve the Plant Load Factor with corresponding increase in total generation of electricity.
