India pushes Qatar to delink price of its imported gas from that of oil.

A Fair Deal?: Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan has said that India wants Qatar to delink the price of its imported gas from that of oil under long-term deals.


Blast From the Past: India in 1999 had signed a long-term LNG deal with Qatar for supplies from 2004, with volumes gradually rising to 7.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).


The price of gas under the long-duration deal was linked to the price of crude, as oil markets were well developed compared with that of gas. The deal was, however, renegotiated in 2015 leading to about a 50% cut in prices for India, which agreed to buy an extra 1 mtpa of LNG from Qatar. Reuters
