MoPNG begins discussions on priority allocation of domestic gas

The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has begun inter-ministerial consultations on its proposal to end the power sector’s priority access to domestic gas. It will send the proposal to the cabinet after the consultation process. The ministry has proposed to permit the use of domestic gas only for fertiliser manufacturers, city gas distributors and liquefied petroleum gas companies, while power plants and other industries would be restricted from using domestic gas, most of which is priced as per a government-set formula and is cheaper than the imported LNG.
