India is presently the fourth largest consumer of energy in the world. However, as India is not blessed with an abundance of natural resources it has become increasingly more reliant on imports to meet its energy needs. The percentage of natural gas in India’s energy mix is forecast to double by 2025, with LNG imports necessary to fill the growing supply-demand gap. India’s existing LNG import and re-gasification capacity is not sufficient to meet existing demand, let alone the forecast increase in import requirements. Working with the gas authorities and private companies in India to assist with developing required LNG infrastructure will be one of the key areas of focus for Duke LNG.
