Four gas based fertilizer projects, with a total consumption of close to 10 mmscmd of gas, is coming up
8Find out when are they actually likely to come up
8All of this business goes to GAIL, but the real decision making is going to be via the Department of Fertilizers, which will be looking for the most competitive source of gas as cost of gas, which makes up 80% of the total cost of fertilizer production, is a pass through under the subsidy dispensation system.
8GAIL is likely to get into a formula based arrangement, and if another supplier thinks it can provide a cheaper rate, then the DOF is the place to go to, or may be a competitive bid should be placed for gas by the buyer, in which both domestic ( a large volume of gas can be supplied by RIL and ONGC going forward from their new discoveries) and LNG suppliers can participate.
Curently, a DOF committee only gets involved in short term gas contracts, floating tenders or RFQs for them.
