Gas in India: Analysing Trends & Outlook

May, 2013   |   226  Pages   |   SNP Infra Research solutions   |   Format : PDF

Indias current energy mix is presently dominated by coal and oil, however, the role of natural gas has increased steadily over the last decade, accounting for about 11 per cent of primary energy consumption. Going forward gas demand is expected to continue to be strong in the country, fuelled primarily by continued economic and population growth and hence, growing demand for power. Continued switching to natural gas by fertiliser plants will also be a key driver of demand, particularly given the high price of alternative oil based feedstock. In addition, the rapid growth in the development of city gas distribution (CGD) networks over the next few years will further drive gas demand.

Demand for natural gas is expected to increase on an annual growth rate of 14% in the XII Plan to reach 373 MMSCMD by 2016-17 from 194 MMSCMD in 2011-12. Further, as per Integrated Energy Policy estimates, it is projected that the total consumption of natural gas in India will reach beyond 600 MMSCND by 2030.

However, the demand for natural gas in the country continues to outstrip its supply, especially now, when the production from KG-D6 block has fallen. Nevertheless, given this huge increase in gas demand, significant capacity additions plans are being envisaged in the XII Plan, which are expected to offer huge investment opportunities to all the players across the oil & gas sector value chain. Moreover, Private and Joint Venture companies are expected to have a leading role during XII Plan period, with a production share of about 52% in natural gas, followed by ONGC and OIL with a share of 42% and 6%, respectively.
