LNG India Summit is back with its 5th edition themed on ‘Empowering a gas based economy for India’. The summit shall be joined by representatives from the companies in LNG ecosystem who will discuss LNG future demand growth in India and infrastructure development, thereby leading a path towards a gas based economy. The summit shall explore future avenues for LNG in various industry applications and adoption of fresh business models in the evolving clean-energy economy.
The 5th annual LNG India Summit would be a two-day knowledge sharing platform with unparalleled networking opportunity and brand exposure to a large audience comprising of major LNG industry players and shall bring together influential leaders, policy-makers, Technocrats, buyers, sellers and experts across the spectrum in this sector from around the globe.
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.

First of all, I would like to thank Messe Frankfurt India for inviting me to be the Chief Guest for 4th edition of LNG India Summit. I participated in the Inaugural Session and was quite impressed by the quality of speakers, participants and the way the conference was organised.

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.
