    LNG is being imported under open general license on terms and conditions mutually agreed upon between buyers and sellers and it is being traded in the country on market-based mechanism.

    During Question Hour, Pradhan told the Lok Sabha that the government is actively considering using LNG as a transportation fuel.

    It is a new, cost-effective and clean proposal, the Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister said.

    To a query, he said that at present, there is no pipeline in the country to transport LNG in liquid form from LNG terminal to end user directly.

    "The LNG after re-gasification is being transported in the gaseous state through trunk gas pipelines from terminals to end consumers of such pipeline," the minister said.
