India, pipelines; Proposals in the pipeline. Mojgan Djamarani. Petroleum Review September 2007, P. 36-38
India's economy has been growing at over 7%/y since 2003 and, in the process, it has developed an enormous appetite for energy , writes Mojgan Djamarani. With the government aim of maintaining an annual GDP growth rate of 9%/y for the next quarter century, commercial energy demand is expected to grow between 5.6% and 6.4% annually, implying a four-fold increase in energy requirements over the period. To meet this requirement poses major challenges to the Indian leadership.
