India’s North-East Gas Grid (NEGG)


India’s plans for gas grid connectivity in South Asia without any hyperlinks:

★ The North-East Gas Grid (NEGG) is expected to be connected to the national gas grid within two months, facilitating the extension of the network to integrate with the gas grids of Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and potentially Myanmar.

★ India’s natural gas demand is growing steadily and is projected to nearly double by 2030. The government is focusing on increasing the share of natural gas in the primary energy mix.

★ The integration of the NEGG with the national grid is part of a larger ambition to establish India as a natural gas hub in the South Asia region.

★ The combined trading potential of India with Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, and Maldives can be more than 25 million standard cubic meters per day (mmscmd) in the next 15 years.

★ India is considering leveraging the NEGG to set up a dedicated network of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations along the land routes to Bangladesh and small-scale LNG road transportation to serve Bhutan and Nepal.

★ The Right of Use (ROU) of the India-Bangladesh Friendship Pipeline for the transport of diesel could be utilized to extend the gas grid into Bangladesh.

★ Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) based LNG hub and spoke distribution models could be used to supply LNG to Sri Lanka and Maldives.

★ These initiatives are part of India’s strategic efforts to enhance regional energy connectivity and promote the use of cleaner fuels, contributing to economic, social, and environmental benefits for the participating countries.
