New Delhi: The Petronet LNG will restart its 5 million tonnes a year plant at Dahej in western India, later on Friday, three days before scheduled, to help ease a natural gas shortage, a company official told reporters.
Natural gas is in short supply, mainly in western India, because of a three-day strike by workers of state-run oil firms.
The plant was shut down to hook up new units and double its capacity to 10 million tonnes.
“Between 6:00pm and 6:00am we will be supplying 7 million cubic metres of gas,” the official said, adding the supply would be raised to 18 million cubic metres the following day.
