ATGL has delivered a good performance with its calibrated approach despite the high input gas price scenario


Ahmedabad (Gujarat) : Adani Total Gas Ltd (“ATGL”), India’s leading City Gas Distribution company, announced today its operational and financial performance for the nine months and quarter ended 31st December 2022.

“During the quarter, ATGL has delivered a good performance with its calibrated approach despite the high input gas price scenario. While gas sector has been seeing volatility in prices due to geopolitical issues, we have seen a moderation in the international gas prices in the recent weeks. We are confident that this, coupled with the increase in domestic gas supply and expected increased allocation to the CGD sector, will drive increased demand across both PNG and CNG segments,” said Mr. Suresh  P Manglani, CEO of Adani Total Gas. ”Further, in line with our strategy on acceleration and to boost eco system for PNG and CNG in new Geographical Areas (GAs), we have already completed minimum work program for FY24 towards the steel pipeline network in 11 out of 15 of our Geographical Areas awarded in 9th and 10th Round and working with a virtual pipeline in the balance GAs. Similarly, we have also completed the CNG stations required for minimum work program for FY24 in 14 Geographical Areas out of 15 Geographical Areas, for 9th and 10th round GAs to develop an ecosystem in these Geographical Areas”.

        CNG Volume has increased by 30% Y-o-Y on account of Customer activities along with network expansion of CNG stations

        PNG Volume decreased by 11% Y-o-Y due to lesser offtake of gas largely by Industrial consumers owing to high PNG prices resulting from higher gas cost.
