While GAIL is doing a detailed feasibility report for the floating import facility, Petronet LNG Ltd - the nation's largest importer of gas in its liquid form (LNG) in ships, too is building a 5 million tonne facility at Gangavaram in Andhra Pradesh by 2016.

State refiner Indian Oil Corp (IOC) also is doing a front-end engineering and design (FEED) study for a terminal at Ennore in Tamil Nadu.
