“The terminal will allow utilisation of 7,000 mega watt of near-idled power plants and lay the groundwork in the industrial belt that girds the coastal region of Andhra and Odisha,” said the statement.

Stating that the agreement represented an important step forward for the Magnolia gas project, VGS President Gaurav Tiwari said his company was in a position to execute on the first-mover advantage it had established on the east coast.
