During operation, the only cumulative environmental impacts of the Project will be increased gaseous emissions from the additional gas turbine generators and vaporizers. Nitrogen oxides, the major air pollutant, will be controlled through the use of lean-burn technology in the gas turbine generators and the high stacks for rapid dispersion of emission. The major risks for LNG terminal operations are pool-fire and vapor dispersion in case of LNG spills or leakage from the storage tanks, pipelines, and process equipments. PLL will comply with the well-established industry standards for design, construction, and operations of LNG terminal facilities, as well as emergency response and disaster management plan and procedures, which have been adopted since the first phase of the terminal.
Public consultation was carried out before the implementation of the first phase terminal also covering the proposed expansion to 10 MMTPA. Announcements were made in the local newspapers and on the website of the Ministry of Environment and Forests for pubilc comments. No objections were raised in these processes.

|The Project is in line with ADB's India country strategy and energy sector strategy, which promote creating clean energy infrastructure for sustainable economic growth involving private sector.|
|Description of Project Outputs
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)
|Status of Development Objectives
Since the first phase commercial operations started in April 2004, Petronet has already fulfilled all the main development objectives envisaged, i.e. provide additional, lower-cost, and environmentally sustainable alternate input to major industries, diversify the energy base, promote the use of clean energy, and form a good practice in PPP.
In May 2007, the structure of the ADB loan was revised from limited recourse financing for the Dahej expansion project to a corporate loan. This was due to the rapid expansion of PLL operations after ADB approval in August 2006, which included construction of the new LNG terminal at Kochi. This terminal was completed in December 2012.
