Coming together for World Peace

World Peace Day is a day that marks the absence of violence and the presence of brotherhood, alliance and harmony.

This World Peace Day, GAIL takes the opportunity to announce the AGPS (Asian Gas Partnership Summit) 2013, in an endeavor to acknowledge the spirit of unity amongst the nations of the world. The AGPS highlights the Asian Natural Gas market, said to be the 2nd largest by 2015, with 790 bcm of natural gas demand. These numbers signify growing transnational collaboration.

The AGPS is a platform for various Asian Natural Gas entities to unanimously step towards making the world greener, healthier, cleaner and sustainable. This effort is to bring along economic & social development that peace alone can assure.

With Natural Gas, Tomorrow is Yours!

Natural Gas on TRACK – Say hello to a better Tomorrow

Natural Gas has been used to fuel vehicles since the 1930s. Today there are more than a million NGVs in India and the numbers are bound to increase. Leading companies such as Ford, Toyota, Mercedes and Audi are coming up with Natural Gas powered vehicles everyday.

Here is an example of how Audi came out with a car fueled by Natural Gas


Even the Buses today on the roads of India are transformed from what they used to be. The post below depicts how Delhi introduced the first CNG Hybrid bus years back.


Natural Gas has also taken over in the Airlines sector. As a clean fuel, Natural Gas also turns out to be more economical. The post attached shows the same


However, moving a step forward, the India Research Design & Standard Organization (RDSO), a research wing of the ministry of railways based at Lucknow, has started developing a prototype of Trains based on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

Although the idea is not new and versions of Natural Gas locomotives have been tried and tested in different countries over time, including those run on propane, there has not been a remarkable shift towards the same.


With the success of this prototype, India will make the switch. The technology will benefit the Indian Railways as well as our citizens in the following ways:

  1. Being a cheaper alternative, it will bring down operating costs (by 50%) and this will affect the spend on transport by its consumers.
  2. Environmentally, It will make the nation healthier and the future greener with lower emissions
  3. India has abundant resources of LNG for now and is also working on Importing quantities for the future and LNG terminals in India are on their way to being set-up on the east and west coasts
  4. Running on Natural Gas would amount to only 2.2 per cent of India’s annual natural gas consumption of 81 million tons and therefore be commercially feasible
  5. The trains would need lesser refueling compared to Diesel trains

Natural gas is definitely proving to be a promising fuel and it is visibly clear that not only will it help the environment but also the economy and directly or indirectly the people of our country. After all a stronger economy is the result of its powerful citizens. With Natural Gas, Tomorrow is Yours!!

GAIL Signs 3.83 Lakh Crore deal to source GAS from US over 20 years

GAIL India, signs one of the largest deals ever signed by an Indian Company, entering into a $60 Billion deal with two US based companies for bringing in close to six million tonnes of liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) every year over a 20 year period starting 2016-17

GAIL is the first Asian Company to buy liquefied Natural Gas from the US at an advantage of low prices, apparently the lowest in 13 years. Mr. B.C. Tripathi said that the landed price of Natural Gas in India will be close to 12$ per million metric British thermal units (mmBtu)

This deal will equip GAIL to supply 23 million metric standard cubic meters of Gas per day beginning 2017 in the domestic market and benefit industries including, power, fertilizers and others. Apart from this GAIL has also secured 3.5 million tonnes per annum of LNG from US based Cheniere for 20 years. The second 2.3 mtps deal has been signed with Dominion energy. It is the cheapest LNG that has been sourced so far for the domestic market!



DELHI Transport goes HYBRID

The 17th of September, 2010, around 3 years back, our National Capital became the first city in the country to introduce environment friendly low-floor CNG-electric hybrid buses having almost zero pollution level.

Owing to TATA motors, the hybrid bus offers substantial improvement in fuel economy compared to a conventional vehicle. A hybrid electric bus combines a conventional internal combustion engine propulsion system and an electric motor using regenerative energy storage system

As a result, the usage of CNG-electric technology leads to lower emissions, thereby contributing to cleaner air and a greener, more environment-friendly commercial passenger transportation application. The low-floor air-conditioned bus can seat 32 passengers and can also accommodate wheel chairs.

Why let CO2 escape?

The natural gas burning A3 sportback G- Tron, is the latest Audi car that will run on CO2 taken from the atmosphere and turned into Natural gas.

“It’s a very cool idea to take CO2 that would otherwise escape into the atmosphere and turn it into hydrogen and synthetic natural gas.” – AutoBlog

How it works?

Step 1: Wind Energy (Completely renewable): The starting point for Audi e-gas project is electricity generated via renewable wind energy.

Step 2: Power Grid:  The wind energy is fed into the public power grid.

Step 3: Electrolysis: The electrolysis plant which is operated by wind power, splits water into Hydrogen and Oxygen.

Step 4: Methanation: The hydrogen reacts with Carbon Dioxide in the methanation plant. The result is e-gas (synthetic natural gas).

Step 5: CNG Station: The e-gas is thus stored and transported to the filling stations to be filled into your Audi A3
