Pradhan: India in talks with Rosneft to invest in Far East Russian cluster
Neftegaz.RU. Union Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said India is in talks with Russia's oil giant Rosneft to invest in Far East Russian cluster.

Accepting that nearly 70-80 % of our energy requirements are still met through imports, he said the government is also taking various initiatives to switch to cleaner gas and increase the production of gas.
"Through all these initiatives, we are confident we will be reducing our import dependency. Not only that hydrogen is new form of energy we are focused on. India is bound to grow and we will have our own path of energy route which will be self sufficient," Pradhan added.
