Flexible coal fired plants can create more hurdles to starting up stranded gas based capacities

Dec 09: Gas-based power plants were meant to tap into the demand gap that arises when solar plant go cold in the evening just when the demand curve picks up.
8Given the quick-start potential of gas based power, they are increasingly meant to cater to peak load instead of base load demand.
8But that window may close too, now that Indian coal-based power plants have begun experimenting with quick start systems.
8Experiments done globally in which giant super critical 800 MW units are run at capacities as low as 11% are serving as examples for Indian thermal power plants to emulate.
8They are gearing up for two-shift operations, that too without high-cost oil burner support

Case for renegotiation: Australian and US volumes will be forced out of Indian market

Dec 09: As Indian LNG players forge more long term LNG contracts, with five more such contracts beginning from 2019, concerns have appeared over the pricing of these contracts, now that spot prices are sharply down and are likely to stay down for the next couple of years.
8As India seeks renegotiations of some of these contracts, the website carries here an analysis of how much of these long term contracts will not be able to deliver contracted quantities to India if prices are not renegotiated.
8With new domestic gas being sold at slopes of between 8 to 9% of Brent, Australian and US volumes may have to stay out of the Indian market altogether in the foreseeable future. Details

8Given the quick-start potential of gas based power, they are increasingly meant to cater to peak load instead of base load demand.
8But that window may close too, now that Indian coal-based power plants have begun experimenting with quick start systems.
8Experiments done globally in which giant super critical 800 MW units are run at capacities as low as 11% are serving as examples for Indian thermal power plants to emulate.
8They are gearing up for two-shift operations, that too without high-cost oil burner support
