S. No.Type of Project Benefits Details of Project Benefits
(1.)EnvironmentalLNG being a cleaner fuel, lower carbon footprint on substitution of liquid fuels Natural gas, being a cleaner fuel, will replace HFO, DO, Naphtha and Diesel requirements as a fuel source in the future
(2.)FinancialCheaper and cleaner source of energy will lead growth and revival of gas based industries There is a possibility that the gas would be exported to Bangladesh thereby, increasing bilateral trade
(3.)SocialThe Proposed LNG storage and regasification terminal development will generate employment for roughly 50 – 200 people directly and 300-400 people indirectly Helps in CGD networks in major towns and cities, mainly benefitting vehicular transport & households Industries dependent on Natural Gas will be developed significantly in the eastern India generating additional employment in the future
