The consumption of natural gas in petrochemical sector was 2,405 million metric standard cubic meter (MMSCM) in India during 2013-14. It has increased by 20.2% to 2,890 MMSCM during 2014-15 above 2013-14. We have observed annual decline of -15.9% in consumption of natural gas in petrochemical sector in India during 2018-19 from 4,024 MMSCM during 2017-18. The consumption of natural gas in petrochemical sector in India was 3,569 MMSCM during 2019-20, up by 5.4% against 3,386 MMSCM during 2018-19.
Note: Figures are in MMSCM; NA: Not Available; **: Availability Basis (Net Production+LNG Imports); 1. Re-classification among the sectors of consumption of natural gas under energy and non-energy sectors, has been done depending on usage. Sectors where natural gas is being used as feedstock are classified as consumption of gas under non-energy purpose whereas those sectors where natural gas is being used as fuel are classified as consumption of gas under energy purpose; 3. As per IRES, LPG shrinkage is a transformation process and LPG produced is further used for energy purposes to meet domestic / household energy requirements. Therefore, it has been shifted from ‘non energy flow’ to ‘energy flow’; 4. Sector-wise Sales/consumption of natural gas includes RLNG; 5. Total may not tally due to rounding off; 6. The reasons for the variation between the consolidated availability and the consumption can be attributed to stock changes, conversion factor (volume/energy) and the provisional data reported by the companies; Source: PPAC; P: Provisional.
