ExxonMobil India LNG Limited, an affiliate of ExxonMobil, Indian Oil Corporation and Chart Industries Inc have signed a letter of cooperation focused on pioneering virtual gas pipelines for India, to accelerate gas access.

Virtual pipelines deliver liquefied natural gas (LNG) by road, rails and waterways that aren’t connected by physical pipelines.

In early 2019, Chart signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with IOCL to promote the development of the LNG Market in India, focusing on modular liquefaction, regasification applications, LNG bunkering, fuelling stations and alternative LNG mobile transportation including ISO containers.  

This latest Letter of Cooperation expands that reach and potential scale within a significantly growing country that has committed to clean energy options.

Jill Evanko, Chart’s President and CEO, said: “We believe this collaboration with ExxonMobil, a major LNG supplier with a local presence in India, coupled with our ongoing work with IOCL will accelerate India’s ability to offer a cleaner energy solution within the growing cities and networks.”

She added: “We are excited to offer our cryogenic equipment to support what each party in this collaboration believes will accelerate clean energy progress while doing so with localised equipment manufacturing in India.”
