Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL), India’s largest private City Gas Distribution (CGD) player and a joint venture between the Adani Group and TotalEnergies, has won licenses to expand its CGD network to 14 new Geographical Areas (GAs) in the recently concluded 11th round of bidding by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB).

ATGL is now the largest CGD company catering to 52 GAs, 19 of which are operated along with its strategic joint venture partner Indian Oil Corporation.

These 52 GAs account for 15% of the country covering 124 districts across 18 States and three Union Territories (UTs), a press release from the company said.

“Adani Total Gas is one of India’s pioneers in environment-friendly piped natural gas (PNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG). Now with the authorization of additional 14 geographical areas, our presence expands from 39 to 95 districts,” said Suresh Manglani, CEO, Adani Total Gas Ltd.

“With strong support from the Adani Group and TotalEnergies, ATGL is committed to the expeditious development of CGD networks across all these new 52 districts. ATGL will now be catering to 10% of country’s population with cleaner fuel for households as well as for transportation. Therefore, ATGL is fully committed to play a pivotal role in meeting the clean energy needs of India and this strategic expansion is fully aligned with our commitment of nation-building," he said.

With an increasing basket of products and services in the clean energy sector, ATGL, a part of the Gautam Adani-led Adani Group, said it was committed to providing convenient and environment-friendly natural gas for cooking and water heating to more than 9 million households, economic transport fuel for vehicles by establishing around 2,000 CNG stations and clean fuel to industrial and commercial consumers, the release said.

"To achieve these ambitions, ATGL will be investing Rs 12,000 crore in these 14 additional GAs, taking ATGL’s total commitment in the clean energy sector to Rs 20,000 crore," it said.
