The Port of Mumbai, India has received bids from four teams for the development of a Floating gas Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) of 5 million metric tonne per annum (MMTPA).

The four teams are Reliance Industries - BP joint venture, India Gas Solutions, Excelerate Energy and Mitsui.

The project involves the development and operation/maintenance of Floating gas Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) with storage capacity of 170,000 m³ and 5 MMTPA of gas production capacity along with the supporting infrastructure in Mumbai harbour on design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis.

The support facilities to be developed include marine terminal (including berthing and mooring facilities for FSRU and LNG carriers, offloading and transfer, riser systems for gas send-out), sub-sea pipeline, landfall point facilities for metering station and dredging in the approach channel and turning basin.

The total project investment is estimated at Rs27.4 billion (US$431 million).
