○GAIL eyes foray into global LNG trading --FE
【New Delhi】GAIL (India), which has tied up LNG contracts from the US and Russia, is looking to expand its footprint into the global gas trading market.
The idea is that even if the Indian market for the fuel fails to live up to expectations, there would be an assured market overseas. “We have allocated 1 million tonne for Singapore to test out the international market.
We hope sizeable LNG would be absorbed in India. We have about six million tonne of LNG off-take right now. There is full flexibility for us on whether to bring it to India or sell it in the international market,” said GAIL chairman and managing director BC Tripathi.
