DUBLIN, April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

PNGRB seem to have finally made a comeback from the drawing board stage and come up with the revised set of regulations and bidding parameters which will be soon put to test in the upcoming round 4 CGD bidding, covering 14 districts from different states of the country: Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka, Haryana, Punjab and UTs. 

Although the existing CGD entities are facing the pressure of input gas price, shortfalls in gas availability, non-uniform tax regime, etc. and had been battling with legal disputes, policy bottlenecks, gas supply constraints and regulatory inaccuracies, these CGD entities have managed to take on these challenges and register a steady growth in the business. In January 2013, the total natural gas consumption of the country was 127 MMSCMD. Of this, the natural gas consumption by CGD was 14 MMSCMD, nearly 11% of the overall gas consumption by various segments. All the same, the sector seems to have managed to carry the burden of high cost imported natural gas, since the CGD gas basket consisted of around 52% imported natural gas and remaining share consisted of domestic gas through tapered supply as per EGoM allocation. 

Further, based on plans of PNGRB to roll-out around 300 cities and towns across various states for City Gas Distribution network development, the total natural gas demand from CNG and CGD sector, according to the report Vision 2030 by industry group to PNGRB, is expected to reach 85.6 MMSCMD in 2029-30 at a CAGR of 11% from 2013. Also, assuming a typical CGD project investment of around INR 250 - 300 Crore (it may be higher for district level geographical areas, clubbed with inflation), the overall investment in CGD sector may be in a tune of around USD 12 - 15 Bn (at 60 INR/USD) on a conservative estimate basis. 

While largely the key facilitating aspects for CGD business are Gas Availability and Economic incentive to the end-use, the key drivers for CGD business in India include: Domestic Gas at low cost and adequate supply, GDP, Gas supply infrastructure, rationalization of primary fuel prices & subsidy removal, environmental tightness and Enabling policy & regulatory framework. In terms of domestic gas, one thing has emerged quite clearly that the days of cheap domestic natural gas may soon be over (based on the recent Rangarajan Committee report)
