Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan met with new Energy Secretary Rick Perry in US and discussed possibility of importing LNG from the US and Indian investment in the energy sector there.


Pradhan met Perry during an unscheduled trip to the US Capitol and discussed energy cooperation between India and the US, Indian investment in Liquefied natural gas and Shale sectors, and the possibility of the US exporting LNG to India from early next year.

Perry said co-operation between India and the US in the energy sector is in mutual interest as India's energy need is set to see a rapid increase as the economy expands.

Pradhan arrived in Washington DC from Houston, where he attended the influential CERA Week energy conference and launched the new Hydrocarbon Exploration and Licensing Policy.
