  • The city gas distribution (CGD) sector is witnessing rapid growth in terms of network creation and gas demand. As of March 2022, the number of CNG stations in the country stood at4,433, a threefold increase over 2017-18. Further, there are over 9 million PNG connections (domestic, industrial and commercial), 2x more than thosein 2017-18.
  • In a big policy move, the government has modified its gas allocation policy, allowing GAIL (India) to import gas and buy from new domestic fields to meet the growing demand from households and the transport sector. This is expected to increase the pool of natural gas.
  • Elevated global natural gas prices, however, are impacting the CNG conversion economics. The prices are expected to remain high due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. With gas consumption volumes exceeding pre-Covid levels and gas allocation to the CGD sector not increasing commensurately, CGD entities are importing more LNG to meet the rising demand.
  • That said, the medium- to long-term prospects of the sector seem bright owing to the success of the recently concluded Round 11 and the ensuing infrastructure creation, which will cover 98 per cent of the country’s population. A total of 439 bids were received from 26 entities against 61 Gas, and LoIs were issued to 13 entities for 52 GAs.In addition, as much as Rs 800 billion is envisaged forsetting up CGD infrastructure in 61 GAs under Round 11.
  • CGD players also have massive capex plans for under construction and new GAs. Adani Total Gas plans to invest Rs 200 billion in setting up CGD infrastructure over the next eight years; Torrent Gas plans to invest over Rs 100 billion over the next five years in order to expand its CGD network; and Indian Oil Corporation Limited will spend over Rs 70 billion on the new GAs awarded under Round 11, among others.
  • As per government estimates, 50 million households are targeted to getPNG connections by 2030. The CNG stations are targeted to increase to around 10,000 by then.This brings in significant opportunity for stakeholders including CGD operators, contractors, investors and equipment/material/technology providers.
  • The mission of this conference is to analyse the key trends and challengesinthe CGD sector, discuss the regulatory developments, and identify the upcoming opportunities for stakeholders.The conference will also provide a platform to showcase some of the emerging technology solutions and best practices being deployed.
