K’taka scouting for gas supplies for 2,800 mw plants

NEW DELHI, Mar 24: The Karnataka government is scouting for natural gas supplies for 2,800 mega-watt power plants it plans to put up at four locations in the state, a senior state government official said today.

Karnataka needs some 26 million standard cubic meters per day of gas for power plants at Tumkur, Davangere, Gadag and Belgaum, each with 700 MW of electricity generation capacity. The projects will cost about Rs 3,500 crore each and will be built in public-private partnership mode.

Power Company of Karnataka Ltd (PCKL) Managing Director N Naveen Kumar said the projects will be awarded to companies offering the least electricity tariff.

Kumar said land for the projects has been identified and the same will be "transfered to private firms offerring the least tariff". Water linkages would also be provided to the developers.

But no company can indicate a power tariff unless it is sure of the rate at which fuel (gas) will be supplied, he said adding the state government is in negotiations with state-owned GAIL India Ltd for securing gas supplies.

GAIL is days away from commissioning a 5 million tons a year capacity liquefied natural gas (LNG) import facility at Dabhol in Ratnagiri district of Maharasthra. It will complete laying a 997-km pipeline from Dabhol to Bangalore for transporting the gas by end of 2012-13 fiscal. The project will cost Rs 4,508 crore.

Also, it will connect the under-construction LNG import terminal at Kochi in Kerala to Mangalore/Bangalore. Besides PKCL projects, planned projects at Bidadi and Yelahanka by Karnataka Power Corp Ltd (KPCL) would be anchor customers of gas through the pipelines. (PTI)
