City gas distribution (CGD) players have raised concerns over a reduction in the allocation of domestic natural gas. Meanwhile, a 110 per cent hike in domestic gas price from April 1, 2022 has forced them to blend regasified liquified natural gas (RLNG) with domestic gas. This in turn led to an increase in compressed natural gas and piped natural gas prices by Rs 10 per kg/scm. Moreover, many companies like Mahanagar Gas are blending over 15-20 per cent of RLNG with local gas, with CGD entities requesting for a quarterly allocation.
