World’s fastest-growing energy market
India is the 3rd largest energy and oil consumer in the world after China and the US.
India is the 4th largest importer of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
India consumed 213.2 MMT petroleum products and 60,747 MMSCM natural gas. The import dependency of crude oil and LNG during 2018 was 82.59% and 45.89% respectively. During 2018, petroleum import bill was $ 112 bn, a growth of 27% over $ 88 bn during 2017 - 18, and 23.42% of total gross import of the nation. India’s projected oil demand is going to grow at CAGR of 4% during 2016 - 2030 against the world average of 1%, though the projected oil demand will be much lower as compared to the US and China.

India has emerged as a refinery hub.
India's current refining capacity stands at 249 MMTPA, comprising of 23 refineries—18 under public sector, 3 under private sector and 2 in a joint venture. Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) is the largest domestic refiner with a capacity of 80.7 MMTPA. Top three companies – IOC, Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) and Reliance Industries (RIL) - contribute around 66.7% of India's total refining production from FY 2018 - 19.
At present about 16,788 km natural gas pipeline is operational and about 12,672 km gas pipelines are under development.
India has witnessed a steady increase in production as well as consumption of petroleum products over the years. The production of petroleum products stood at 243.5 MMT during 2016-17 to 262.3 MMT in 2018-19.
Cumulative crude oil production during April-August, 2020 was 12,886.26 TMT. Natural Gas production for the month of April 2020 was 2155 MMSCM as against production target of 2551 MMSCM, showing an achievement of 84.48%.
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) supply is forging ahead on both coasts, with 8 new R-LNG terminals (4 on the west and 4 on the east coast) coming up. Together with the six existing terminals, overall capacity will reach 74 MMTPA.
