GAIL India may rent out Dabhol plant to private producers
GAIL India is considering renting out the 1,967 MW unit to private electricity generators after being forced to shut the Dabhol power plant due to a natural gas shortage. Ratnagiri Gas & Power Pvt Ltd (RGPPL) shut the Dabhol power plant in March after gas supplies from Reliance Industries' KG-D6 fields was stopped. Finding no buyers for power produced using costlier imported gas, RGPPL is mulling giving out the power plant to private operators on a tolling basis, sources with direct knowledge of the development said.
