The LNG terminal was inaugurated by the Hon. Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri Devendra Fadnavis.
H-Energy's LNG Terminal is developed in accordance with world-class engineering and safety standards with a capacity of 4 million tpy. It is scheduled for commercial operations by 4Q18 and will be capable of reloading LNG into other vessels.
