The allocation, however, is subject to commencement of production, within the overall allocation of 18 mmscmd for the power sector decided earlier.
The supply will be made at a selling price of $4.2 million British thermal units for all customers. This excludes the transportation cost and tax.
Ratnagiri power project is now a joint venture between two state-run enterprises, NTPC and GAIL. Projects in Andhra Pradesh have also staked claimed to Reliance gas.
