Pre-feasibility Study for development of Gas based Projects in Mundargi

1. Introduction
The development of the power sector in the country since independence has been predominantly through the State Electricity Boards. In order to supplement the efforts of the States in accelerating power development and to enable the optimum utilisation of energy resources, the Union Government has permitted private participation in the power sector. With the rapid industrialisation, successful rural electrification and large-scale use of electricity for the irrigation purpose, the demand for electricity has registered a significant growth. Also, it is expected that the on-going liberalisation of the country's economic policy would accelerate the industrial growth, which would further increase the demand for power. Although several new power projects have been identified with a view to bridge the gap between the demand and availability, only a few could be taken up for implementation due to financial and other constraints. This would result in large shortfall in the availability of both peak power (capacity required: 8,826 MW) and energy (units required: 53,540 MU) in the state of Karnataka as of 2010-2011 as per 17th Electric Power Survey carried out by Central Electricity Authority (CEA). The present demand for electrical power continues to grow and will continue to outstrip the available and planned generation capacity leading to chronic shortage of available power and energy in the future years.

Infrastructure Development Department (IDD), Government of Karnataka is the Infrastructure arm of Government of Karnataka (GoK) with the primary objective of facilitating development of infrastructure projects across Karnataka. IDD on behalf of Government of Karnataka has entered into a Gas Cooperation Agreement with Gas Authority of India Ltd.(GAIL) on 29.04.2009 for the development of natural gas infrastructure and city gas distribution network, to develop the use of eco-friendly fuels, especially Natural Gas/CNG/PNG/R-LNG and to promote a Joint Venture (JV) for domestic, industrial and transport sectors in the state of Karnataka.

Under the Agreement, GAIL will lay two gas pipelines in the state from Dabhol to Bangalore and Kochi to Bangalore and it is proposed to put up four gas-based power stations of 2000 MW capacity each along the gas pipeline corridor to be located at Belgaum, Gadag, Davangere and Tumkur districts.
