Gas Dehydration Business:

Recently Company has forayed into the gas dehydration business.This is a relatively new business segment in India, primarily triggered due to the gas leakage incident that occurred in GAIL’s KG Basin pipeline in the East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh on June 27, 2014.

As a consequence of this incident, PNGRB has made it mandatory to dehydrate natural gas before mounting it in the pipelines.

Company currently owns one gas dehydration package and have been awarded a gas dehydration contract at Odalaveru Onshore Terminal in Andhra Pradesh.


Competition in the Gas Dehydration Business:

The gas compression and gas dehydration services industry is characterized with limited players including players like John Energy Ltd , Deep Industries Limited, HAL Offshore. (This business is dominated by very few companies )

This has been primarily due to the high asset and technology intensive industry resulting to advantage to existing players.

The capital intensity nature of the industry coupled with the relevant technical expertise act as entry barrier for new entrants.
