Dharmendra Pradhan requests energy business stakeholders to invest in India


Abu Dhabi: It is too early to predict the impact of United States sanctions on India's import of Iranian oil, union petroleum and natural gas minister Dharmendra Pradhan said today.

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) has unveiled plans to invest Dh165 billion ($45 billion) alongside partners, over the next five years, to become a leading global downstream player, enabling it to further stretch the value of every barrel it produces to the benefit of Adnoc, its partners and the UAE. We generally import oil from the UAE, but this is the first time the UAE has made a decision to store six million barrels of oil in strategic storage. Indian Ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri was also present. The strategic reserve will provide a boost to India's energy security and help us deal with supply side disruptions.
