(RIL) is working on plans to transport the natural gas from its Krishna-Godavari offshore (KG Basin) gas field to GSPL's facility in Bharuch, GSPL is already in agreement with RIL to transport natural gas from its Bharuch to Jamnagar refinery. This might be a big win for Reliance considering its Natural gas consumption capacity, it's a bigger win for GSPC / GSPL has these companies are will get a distribution framework ready to market Compressed Natural Gas in Gujarat and especially Saurashtra region. Reliance is eyeing on this framework to have their own PNG / CNG distribution cells across villages.
Reliance is looking a way ahead and is now interested to set up grid between its east and west refineries, RIL has a production point at Kakinada , which produced Natural Gas from Krishna-Godavari (KG Basin), once this network is build then with benefits of GSPL Gas Silo at Uran and Dahej (South Gujarat). Reliance can transfer natural gas to any of its refining areas;
On the other hand GSPL will use this grid to move its Natural Gas from the Kakinada to landing point into Gujarat like Mundra and Pipavav.
