The current CGD network in India is spread across 45 GAs in 15 states/UTs. The sector is still dominated by some major companies that hold a majority of the share in the network. The top 5 players - GGL, IGL, AGL, MGL and CUGL - account for more than 82% of the gas distribution pipeline network.
With a pipeline network of 17,000 km plus (March 2016), and about 258 CNG stations, GGL is the largest CGD player in India catering to approximately 1,204,085 consumers (as of February 2017).
Other major players include AGL, CUGL, GAIL Gas, Maharashtra Natural Gas Limited, Haryana City Gas Distribution Limited, Green Gas, Assam Gas Company Limited, Bhagyanagar Gas Limited and Tripura Natural Gas Company Limited.
CGD sector gets top priority in domestic gas allocation. To promote usage of CNG across the country, the government has mandated that the entire CGD requirement for domestic segment be met through domestic gas.
There are some issues and concerns that need urgent attention. Chief among these are irrational bidding by CGD entities, delays in securing multiple clearances, lack of well-defined market potential, entry barriers, deficient pipeline connectivity and uncertainty regarding domestic gas supply.
Going forward, the business potential for CGD networks in India is significant. The sector offers significant business opportunities exist for project developers, pipeline manufacturers, technology providers (control systems, etc.), consultants, regulators and meter manufacturers, etc. The policy side looks promising, as the PNGRB is planning to revamp the existing City Gas Distribution Policy, in a bid to provide a boost to the sector.
