Industry Scenario

Industry Scenario

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.
