Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL), one of India’s leading city gas distribution firm, on Thursday announced its operational and financial performance for the half yearly and quarter ended 30 September 2022. The company’s revenue from operations increased by 90 per cent to Rs 2,301 crore and it logged an EBITDA of Rs 464 crore. The company clocked a PBT of Rs 373 crore, while the PAT was at Rs 277 crore.
“ATGL continued with full vigour and resilience in significantly augmenting and investing in creating backbone CGD infrastructure across all its Geographical Areas with crossing 6.25 lakh PNG Home Connections mark, crossing of 10,000 inch-km of steel pipeline, enhancing PNG supplies to 6,088 businesses/industries and enhancing CNG footprint to 367 stations,” said Suresh P Manglani, CEO of Adani Total Gas.
“The CGD industry continues to face a challenging scenario with significantly higher input gas prices mainly due to geopolitical factors as well as supply shortages across the globe. In the face of such challenges, we have been able to maintain our EBITDA on half yearly basis due to growth in volume. We believe that these challenges are for the short term and that the infrastructure that we create is for generations to come as we continue to march with the nation on its journey towards a gas-based economy,” he added.
PNG volume has decreased by 8 per cent in September quarter and 3 per cent in April-September “due to curtailment of gas supplies from our suppliers and high gas prices”, the firm said.
With addition of 33 new CNG stations, the tally of CNG stations increased to 367 while addition of over 61,000 homes increased the PNG network to over 6.25 lakh. Also, the firm provided PNG to 412 new businesses and industries. Total industrial and commercial connections increased to 6,088.
Besides retailing CNG, ATGL said it is targeting setting up of 1,500 EV charing stations.
