  • The city gas distribution (CGD) segment has made significant headway over the past couple of years. New geographical areas (GAs) have been bid out, CNG and PNG infrastructure has grown, bigger players are expanding their presence in new cities, and a handful of global players have also entered the CGD space.
  • On the regulatory front, several initiatives have been taken by the government to provide a favourable business environment to CGD entities. In a major development, the PNGRB announced that any entity can set up an LNG filling station in a GA or anywhere else. Draft regulations have been drawn up for the determination of the transportation rate for CGD after the end of the period of exclusivity. The regulatory board has also issued force majeure guidelines for city gas operators. An electronic platform for gas trading is also expected to be authorised by November this year.
  • The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has certainly brought about a series of unprecedented challenges for the CGD sector. The roll-out of CGD projects has been delayed due to labour availability issues, delays in getting approvals and deferment of investments. CGD entities have also suffered revenue losses due to a reduction in demand from the transport, commercial and industrial segments. Gas demand is expected to gradually limp back to normal in the near term, supported by low gas prices.
  • As the sector progresses towards normalcy in operations, the industry is keenly awaiting the bidding process for the 11th round, which was postponed on account of the pandemic. The PNGRB is working on a revised set of regulations for the upcoming round and proposes to offer 44 new GAs under it.
  • The implications of the virus outbreak have also pushed the CGD sector to look at technology solutions for facilitating its operations. Increasing the deployment of advanced IT-OT convergence solutions such as ERP, SCADA, terminal automation systems, smart metering, CRM, GIS and satellite surveillance are finding an increasing number of takers, who are looking to monitor their assets with greater precision and in real time.
  • In the coming years, the CGD segment is expected to maintain a high growth trajectory. More than Rs 1.2 trillion is expected to be invested in the development of CGD infrastructure over the next four to five years. Gas demand from the CGD sector is expected to reach 50-55 mmscmd by then. However, effective execution of regulatory changes, timely completion of pipeline connectivity projects and development of skilled manpower will be essential for ensuring faster development of infrastructure.
  • The mission of this two-day virtual conference is to analyse the emerging trends and regulatory developments in the CGD sector, understand the impact of Covid-19 on project execution, gas sales and future investments, and highlight the key opportunities and challenges. The conference will provide a platform to showcase recent innovations in technology and equipment, noteworthy projects and best practices.
