Tata Steel Mining signs deal with BPCL for LNG supply to Odisha plant

Tata Steel Mining (TSML), a subsidiary of Tata Steel, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) to ensure a long-term supply of liquified natural gas (LNG) for its ferroalloys plant in Jajpur, located in the Indian state of Odisha. Under the agreement, BPCL, a central public sector undertaking, will supply the agreed quantity of natural gas through its pipeline to the ferroalloys plant. This move is part of TSML's sustainability initiatives, which will aid in reducing its carbon footprint by using cleaner fuel LNG instead of furnace oil.

The partnership with BPCL will ensure a steady supply of LNG for their ferroalloys plant and is in line with their commitment to decarbonisation and sustainability. BPCL expressed its pleasure at associating with Tata Steel Mining and supplying them with natural gas for their operations, bringing them closer to their decarbonisation goal.

The industries secretary of Hemant Sharma, Odisha, welcomed this step, which will help reduce the carbon footprint in the state. Earlier, TSML had signed a pact with GAIL (India) to replace furnace oil with cleaner fuel by supplying natural gas to its ferroalloys plant at Athgarh in Cuttack.
