Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister for petroleum and natural gas & Minister of skill development and entrepreneurship, said the commencement of LNG imports from Russia has added a new dimension to the Indo-Russian bilateral relations, particularly in the oil and gas sector. He said Prime Minister Modi and President Putin have especially emphasized on energy cooperation between the two countries, which has taken shape of an energy bridge. Today’s arrival of the first LNG cargo from Russia is an example of this growing strategic partnership.

Russia has emerged as a long-term source for India’s hydrocarbon imports.
