Job Description

The Rs 3,000 crore SEIPL Terminal and Port facilities, in Surat district, Gujarat, is regarded as a key FDI project and it represents one of the largest international investments in India in the energy sector. Spread over an area of 46.7 hectares, the terminal has a jetty where LNG cargo is unloaded through to the cryogenic tanks. LNG is stored in the tanks at -160 C and pumped out of the tank for sending out to customers after regasification. The Hazira Terminal includes an LNG storage and regasification terminal within a fully functional port. A combination of factors went into choosing Hazira as the site for the LNG Terminal and an all weather port. Hazira is situated in the midst of one of the most industrialized areas in the country and has a ready market for gas in the immediate vicinity. It is at a key location and is presently connected to the HVJ, DUPL, GSPL and East West pipelines at Mora, enabling us to supply gas to all of North, West and potentially South India. The SEIPL terminal was the first to introduce Spot LNG supplies into India.
