The Future of Indian gas post COP 21

The Indian gas market has huge potential for growth that has been undermined to date by poor performance in the country’s upstream sector and a confused pricing strategy. The country has recently become an increasing importer of LNG, taking advantage of lower prices in 2016, and the Insight will examine whether this is a short-term phenomenon or a trend that is likely to continue. Gas faces significant competition from low cost indigenous coal, although the latter comes with negative environmental consequences, and this paper will also examine whether India’s commitments to an improved climate policy can favour gas, or whether the economic and security benefits of continued coal use will outweigh the country’s COP21 commitments.
