HPCL acquires 50% stake in Chhara LNG terminal

Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) has acquired the balance 50% equity stake in ‘HPCL Shapoorji Energy Private Limited (HSEPL)’ from M/s S P Ports Pvt Ltd on 30th March 2021. Post-acquisition, HPCL’s stake in HSEPL gets enhanced to 100%, making HSEPL a wholly owned subsidiary of HPCL.

HSEPL is constructing a 5 MMtpy LNG Terminal at Chhara, Gujarat at a project cost of about Rs 4300 crore which is likely to be completed by end of calendar year 2022. The Terminal will have all facilities for receipt of LNG through ocean going tankers, marine unloading, storage, LNG Road Tanker loading, regasification, and supply of regasified LNG to the gas grid. The project is further expandable to a capacity of 10 MMTPA in future

The acquisition is in line with overall future strategy of HPCL to diversify its product portfolio and is an important step in the direction of having a strong presence in the total Natural Gas value chain. Percentage of Natural Gas in the overall energy basket of India is expected to grow from 6% at present to 15% by 2030 which makes it one of the important growth drivers in future.

HPCL, along with its joint venture companies, has presence in CGD business in 20 Geographical Areas (GA) in 34 districts covering 9 states in the country. HPCL on its own operates 674 CNG stations as on date which it plans to expand further. It is also foraying into setting up of LNG dispensing stations. These, together with the focus on enhanced use of Natural Gas in refineries of HPCL and its joint ventures/subsidiaries add to the strategic value of the acquisition.

Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Register Now

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
