OTPC Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC), a Fortune 500 company of the Government of India, owns significant natural gas reserves in the North Eastern state of Tripura. However, these natural gas reserves were not developed commercially due to low industrial demand in the North-Eastern region.

 

 

The complexities of logistics and attendant costs limited the economic viability of transportation of gas to other parts of the country where gas is in deficit. In order to optimally utilize the gas available in Tripura and to supply power to the deficit areas of North Eastern States of India, ONGC along with Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services Limited (IL&FS) and Government of Tripura (GoT) formed a Special Purpose Vehicle ONGC Tripura Power Company (OTPC) by entering into a Shareholders’ Agreement (SHA) on September 18, 2008 to implement a 726.6 MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) thermal power plant at Palatana, Tripura.
