From the nylon bristles of the truth brush that we use in morning to fuel of car that drives us to work place, from Medicines to air conditioning, baby products to gasoline, Cooking Gas to dent-resistant cars, Oil & Gas is “fuelling” our lives with Comfort, Safety, Health and productivity.
Amongst the Six Core Industries of India, Oil and Gas has a prominent role to play as it influences other major economic decisions. India is one of the largest consumers of energy in the world and is now expected to overtake Japan in Oil consumption.
