India’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports rose in November compared to the same month last year, according to the preliminary data from the oil ministry’s Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell.

The country imported about 2.34 billion cubic meters, or about 1.8 million tonnes of LNG, in November, a rise of 5.3 percent compared to the same month in 2022, PPAC said.

During April-November, India took 20.09 bcm of LNG, or some 15.4 million tonnes, up by 12.4 percent, PPAC said.

India paid $1.2 billion for November LNG imports, down from $1.5 billion last year, it said.

India’s Adani and France’s TotalEnergies started supplying natural gas in April to the grid from their 5 mtpa Dhamra LNG import facility located in Odisha, on India’s east coast. In August, the partners completed the first truck loading operation at the facility.
