The MoU was signed by GSPC’s Managing Director, Tapan Ray, and GGCL’s Managing Director, Sugata Sircar, at Gandhinagar on September 3rd. The MoU is effective till the December 31st or the signing of the relevant gas sales contracts (GSC), whichever is earlier. Price of gas will be determined in the relevant GSCs and it is expected to be formula-based.

Out of around 2.8 mmscm of gas per day used by GGCL’s customers currently, nearly 50% is RLNG which is largely sourced through medium term contracts or from spot markets.
