Case Study by Yokogawa: Hazira LNG Private Limited (HLPL), a joint venture between Shell Gas B.V. and Total Gaz Electricite Holdings, operates an LNG receiving terminal in Hazira, which is a major port and industrial hub in India’s Gujarat state. Commissioned in 2005, the terminal has two 160,000 m3 storage tanks along with re-gasification and auxiliary facilities that are capable of handling 3.6 million tons of LNG per year. This is the first LNG terminal in India to be built by global energy companies.
A 22 km pipeline connects the Hazira terminal to the national gas grid at Mora Station. The pipeline has sectionalizing valve (SV) and LNG custody transfer metering (CTM) stations that are located 4 km and 14 km from the terminal, respectively.
The control systems for the Hazira terminal are installed in its main control room (MCR), which handles all re-gasification processes and utilities, and at the jetty facility, where arriving LNG carriers are unloaded.
