The focused was on India’s gas requirement, evaluation of pipelines versus LNG container supply costing details and the ‘SAGE Vision’. Dr Rao argued that India needs to look at alternative sources in order to meet its growing demands of energy. While TAPI (Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan-India) and IPI (Iran-Pakistan-India) are yet to take off, the Middle East to India Deepwater Gas Pipeline (MEIDP) is preferred on geo-strategic, economic and commercial bases.
