ーIndia's natural gas production
"India's natural gas production"
In India's energy resources, just the coal
stands out. However, generally speaking,
once the economic development is progressed
in a country, the natural gas is surely discovered
in the territory of the country at the low-lying
areas around or offshore fields.
Let us see the example in Thailand, Vietnam,
Cambodia, Philippines, China, East China
Sea and so on; at all economic growth of
the countries, the natural gas has been discovered.
So, it can be considered as the following.
Wherever natural gas may be avail in a globe?
But, the cost of production in the natural
gas is depending on a shallow place, or the
I also agree with an opinion of natural gas
from the mineral theory.
If natural gas is easy to dig at shallow
place, people is trying to dig at the earth's
low-lying, not on the top of the Himalayas.
The influence of the earth's self-rotation
might have to form the earth's continents,
mostly steep in west banks and gentle in
Whenever I say so, all my friends watch my
face to confirm whether it is serious or
joke, and they fall silent. Nobody objected.
You are probably thinking like that?
Indian subcontinent is no exception. In India's
Maharashtra state at the west bank, the cliff
from the Decan plateau is severely depressed
and the sea level of up to 500 m head.
The terrain is suitable for pumped storage
power generation plan.
Meanwhile, let's take a look at India's east
coast. In this region, there are two big
rivers; Godovari and Krishna.
The rivers are flowing into the Indian Ocean,
forming gentle plateau and low-plains of
a large basin.
The plains is called "KG basin"
Now, seven years ago, the world-class discovery
of natural gas was happen by the Reliance
in the KG basin.
In 2002, the Reliance's discovery, in the
India's KG basin at offshore, estimated the
reserves of 14 trillion cubic feet (2002
fiscal year on the world's largest natural
At the dates back a year ago, Indian government
enacted NELP (New Exploration Licensing Policy).
Based on the policy, the Indian government
has blocked the area around the continent
and launched a bid for exploration projects.
This policy under NELP is actively running
with the company, ONGC, Oil & Natural
The ONGC, which bid on the block, KG basin
lead exploration rights in five blocks to
From now on, India, ONGC and Reliance are
working in production of natural gas competition.
This competition is India's future energy
situation, what kind of impact?
Recently, LNG and natural gas prices are
Calculated on a bid to generate electricity,
LNG is 17 cents per KWh have been going up.
Coal is still the same advantage.
However, Indo-USA nuclear cooperation agreement
and also the impact, finally, India is the
diversification of energy trying to progress.
