PLL welcomes decision for establishment of LNG dispensing station in country
Petroleum Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) in its public notice on 2nd June 2020 announced that any entity can set up an LNG station in any Geographical Area (GA) or anywhere else, even if it is not the authorised entity for that GA.
This clarification by the PNGRB has been wholeheartedly welcomed by PLL management. PLL being the pioneer and the largest LNG infrastructure company of India would like to facilitate LNG dispensing infrastructure across the country on major national highways and invites OMCs, CGD entities or any interested parties to partner up for this project.
Petronet’s MD&CEO Shri. Prabhat Singh said “PLL in its endeavour to contribute towards vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and relentless efforts of Cabinet Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas and Minister of Steel Dharmendra Pradhan of making India a gas based economy is putting in all efforts to promote LNG as a cleaner, greener and economic automotive fuel for Medium and Heavy Commercial Vehicles(M&HCVs) in India.”
In these efforts, PLL has already launched its first commercially registered LNG buses and LNG dispensing stations at its Dahej and Kochi Terminals.
