LNG India Summit is back with its 5th edition ‘Empowering gas based economy for India’ for chief LNG experts from across the globe. Delegates from the key companies in LNG technology, trade and operations will be discussing the LNG future demand growth of India and infrastructure development hence leading a path towards a gas based economy. The summit shall explore a new future of LNG in various industry applications and adaption of these business models in evolving environment of clean economy.
The 5th annual LNG Summit is a two-day knowledge sharing and unparalleled networking with brand exposure to a large audience of major LNG industry players. The pertinent topics like future LNG price dynamics, advancements in technology in shipping and bunkering, infrastructure and 100% utilization, distribution and future of LNG as a sustainable transportation fuel.
Indian economy aims to reduce the carbon emissions intensity by one-third and double the share gas has in its energy mix. India's National Clean Air Programme launched earlier this year in theory should boost natural gas usage in households, transportation and power.
The infrastructure constraints keeps gas from getting to consumers. Driven by demand from city gas distribution and transportation India's LNG demand is expected to grow by 9-11% this year even as the country adds import capacity at a faster clip, thus hindering the growth rates.
In addition to the India four terminals receiving LNG, the government plans to build another 11 terminals over the next seven years. However India's LNG import terminals are likely to remain underutilised for years to come. The government aims to run all LNG terminals at full capacity by 2022 as it works to complete the entire pipeline grid. The PNGRB has awarded licenses to build city gas distribution networks across the country, targeting districts that cover about 70% of India's population. The government is also aiming to connect more than 10 million households with piped gas by 2020 from the current 4.8 million, with the city gas portion of India's natural gas use expected to more than double to 15% of the overall gas market.
The summit shall discuss various demand drivers leading to the growth of LNG trade opportunities in India and will forecast the solutions and initiatives for infrastructure development.

LNG India Summit 2018 has been a superb event, packed with contemporary insights and eminent speakers. The content of the summit was carefully chosen to strike out a fine balance between the interests of academicians, industries, regulators and policy makers. This summit facilitated enough time slots for two way communication to happen for connecting participants with speakers, which is commendable. All the staff are very professional and cooperative.

The summit provided in depth information on certain topics. It was a great platform for providing insightful view of the Indian LNG market from the stakeholders. The organisers were really accommodative. It provided a balance in topics and not heavy to one particular segment. Great subject matter. It should be done annually as a platform for LNG stakeholders of Indian Market to discuss new developments and challenges.
