The company is a City Gas Distribution (“CGD”) firm based in India, operating in multiple regions including Banaskantha (Gujarat), Fatehgarh Sahib (Punjab), Diu & Gir Somnath (Union Territory of Daman and Diu/Gujarat), as well as Namakkal & Tiruchirappalli (Tamil Nadu). Its primary focus is on the construction, management, and expansion of local and urban natural gas distribution networks. As an integrated energy enterprise committed to delivering value, the company undertakes natural gas distribution projects within the geographical areas (“GAs”) assigned to it, catering to industrial, commercial, domestic, and automotive clients. The company has steadily developed its expertise as a CGD provider by actively growing its GAs since 2017, as reported by CRISIL.
In India, the consumption of natural gas experienced a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8% between Fiscals 2016 and 2020, reaching approximately 176 MMSCMD in Fiscal 2020. It is anticipated that the demand for natural gas from the City Gas Distribution (CGD) sector will exhibit a CAGR of 19-20% between Fiscals 2023 and 2030, ultimately reaching 117-120 MMSCMD. Within this period, each sub-segment, including Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and Piped Natural Gas (PNG) for domestic and industrial use, is expected to witness substantial growth, particularly due to the inclusion of new cities in the gas distribution network. The expansion of natural gas usage in the PNG segment is projected to be driven significantly by increased penetration. This information is sourced from the CRISIL Report.
