The Indian natural gas market is currently only seven percent of the energy consumption but has grown over the last three years by more than five percent per annum, supported by an active policy of the Indian Government that aims to diversify its energy mix and develop domestic use of gas in cities and as fuel for vehicles. India has set the ambitious target of increasing the share of natural gas in its energy mix to 15 percent by 2030.
LNG supplier interest has shifted towards India and China as the next major demand centres. India has been registering a steady growth in LNG imports for more than a decade. The share of LNG in India's gas basket is close to 50%. The global LNG supply glut and drop in LNG prices has further favoured India's appetite towards LNG which has resulted in a positive outlook towards a robust LNG imports scenario in the times to come. The positive outlook towards a robust natural gas demand growth amid the ground realities such as domestic supply constraints, under-balanced gas pipeline and RLNG terminal infrastructure signals that significant ground needs to be covered in terms of infrastructure development and adopting innovative supply-chain approach towards penetrating gas markets through LNG. New disruptions and infrastructure developments are expected to happen in the times to come due to technological evolutions in storage and regasification of LNG at end-user point of use across industrial (ISO Containers and Cryogenic Storage) and transport segment (LCNG, LNG in M&HCV). How far the road to superior and sustainable energy mix can be achieved is a lot dependent on the preparatory in place to steer the demand growth and the infrastructure required for the same. Diligentia Services is organising their Sixth Annual LNG Summit 2020 scheduled to be held on 17th January 2020 to discuss the key challenges and the road map ahead for the Indian LNG market .The summit provides an excellent opportunity for interaction & listening to the views of the national and international experts and discussions among major stakeholders. Like last year, the summit is being held with the support of major players in gas industry like MoP&NG, PLL and GAIL .Considering the importance and relevance of the natural gas in the Indian energy mix and the position it holds as a beacon of clean energy for the Indian energy sector, the event attendance will have top executives from various companies in the entire supply chain of Natural Gas.
