End of last week, GAIL is still flogging the Dabhol terminal.
8One vessel is at berth and another is lined up, could also be because the weather has sobered down from how it was last week, when the seas were rough and mooring cables were getting broken.
8Shell's Hazira has five vessels lined up.
8And that is possibly because GAIL cannot load up Dabhol and Dahej is already stretched, some cargoes have come into Hazira as a result.
8Hazira has only a couple of dedicated clients, as far as we can see: RIL and Arcelor Mittal Nippon Steel India Ltd. Torrent too, sometimes.
8RIL,  as its dependence on ethane cargoes from the US and Indian gas from its fields in KG Basin go up, its demand for LNG will fall.
8And once GAIL has its Dabhol unit gets going 24X7 from the middle of next year, there will be that much less business for both Hazira and PLL's Dahej terminal

With the Dabhol terminal running out of steam, and with Dahej at near tank full conditions, Shell's managers can put their feet up and relax.
8Not that they do much work anyways in other parts of the year.
8They have a platinum team with literally no work to show. And business comes around this time of the year by sheer default.
8In any other company, sack orders would have been out long back but Shell LNG, as we all know is a lumbering giant, as its track record in India shows for all these years.,
8Bad management all with absolutely zero accountability. Or how else can you explain a 5 MMTPA terminal in a prime location for all these years doing literally little or no business ever since January? Our desi chaps in GAIL, GSPC, PLL, even H Energy and a host of struggling newcomers, Indian and foreign, are much better at their jobs than Shell's "international team".
