India wants to increase its use of natural gas by 2.5 times before 2030, Prime Minister Narenda Modi said recently.
In a recent article by Haley Zaremba in oilprice.com, Modi lays out part of the nation’s effort to shift away from India’s reliance on crude oil and its byproducts. Modi spoke at a New Delhi ceremony laying the foundation for a nationwide system of city gas distribution networks, with some 129 projects already under way.
