The development of a gas pipeline in Bengal — from Kanai Chatta near Digha to Shrirampur in Nadia — could be hit because of lack of clarity on the supply of the fuel from H-Energy Pvt Ltd, a subsidiary of real estate firm Hiranandani Group.
“The availability of FSRU (floating storage regasification unit) timeline is not being provided by H-Energy in spite of repeated reminders. The bidders may take note of this development,” the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board said.
The bids have to be submitted by March 15.
H-Energy is setting up the FSRU unit on the east coast with annual capacity to convert 3 million tonnes of imported LNG to natural gas.
