MOSCOW (MRC) -- GAIL (India) Ltd. has approved the revival of an existing liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) plant for conversion into a new polypropylene (PP) complex in Usar, Raigad district of Maharashtra, India, according to Apic-online.

The "first of its kind project in India" will have 500,000 t/y of PP capacity, as well as an integrated propane dehydrogenation unit, at an estimated cost of Rs 8,800 crore, GAIL noted.

The project is scheduled to be commissioned by fiscal year 2023-2024.

As MRC wrote previously, India's state-owned gas utility company GAIL India plans to import ethane from countries including the US, for its upcoming USD5 billion joint-venture Andhra Pradesh petrochemical plant. GAIL is seeking 1.3 million mt/year of ethane for 15 years for its JV ethane cracker with India's Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd (HPCL), located on the east coast of India beginning 2022, the company said in February 2016.

Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) is the largest state-owned natural gas processing and distribution company in India. It is headquartered in New Delhi. It has the following business segments: natural gas, liquid hydrocarbon, liquefied petroleum gas transmission, petrochemicals, city gas distribution, exploration and production, GAILTEL and electricity generation.
