To diversify India’s energy mix and develop a gas-based economy, India has set an ambitious target of increasing the share of natural gas in its primary energy mix from 6% to 15% by 2030. The government has launched targeted reforms for development of natural gas infrastructure, expansion of city distribution networks, market determined gas pricing, and increased domestic gas production. For LNG developers India therefore offers great potential. What role will LNG play in the mix and does it offer cost competitive supply? What needs to happen to further promote India’s LNG imports?
