India aims to double LNG supply from Qatar

India intends to double its Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) imports from Qatar to 15 million tonnes a year. India, the world’s 8th largest importer of LNG, annually buy 7.5 million tonnes from Qatar under a long-term deal. In addition, India has asked Qatar to meet "to supply instant requirement" of 3 million tonnes of LNG, which could assist to make up for falling local gas output and soaring demand for the cleaner fuel.
