India accords high priority to promoting a gas based and clean economy. Currently natural gas forms a relatively small share of our energy mix. Gas infrastructure projects of over 8 billion US dollars are under implementation across the country. We aim to increase share of natural gas in energy mix from current 6.5% to 15% by 2022. Going forward, we intend to create a robust natural gas trading hub. The process to formalise the concept has already been initiated by our Government.
