Please brief us about the ongoing trends and current market overview of the Indian gas industry.
 India is the 3rd highest consumer of LPG in the world. The three Govt. PSU companies, i.e. IOCL, BPCL, and HPCL dominate the LPG supply market in India. Smaller Private LPG supply companies such as SHV Supergas, Total Gas, Reliance, etc are also present. The coverage of LPG in India is also quite widespread and covers 99.4% of the country. LPG is transported to customers via cylinder or tank trucks. There are more than 25,000 LPG distributors in the country. However, 90% of the LPG consumed is used for household cooking, and only 10% is used for commercial/industrial purposes. The government is promoting LPG as an industrial fuel and intends to increase this to 20% by 2030.
For Natural Gas, it has to be transported via gas pipelines across the country. GAIL is responsible for laying the Natural Gas pipelines across the country. GAIL then delivers the gas to a City Gas Distribution Companies such as MGL, IGL, MNGL, Adani Gas, Torrent Gas, Gujarat Gas, etc and they are responsible for laying the gas pipelines internally within the city and delivering gas to houses, and hotels, industries and set up CNG pumps for vehicles. By 2028, more than 90% of India’s geographical area shall have access to Natural Gas as a clean fuel. Currently, gas usage in India is only 8% compared to all other fuels, while the global average is 24%. The government wants to make India a gas-based economy and wants to increase the share from currently 8% to 12% by 2025 for gas as a fuel used across the country and then beyond that.
