India needs reliable energy partners.

India’s energy requirements are growing faster than any other country. To meet demand, India needs all energy sources, including oil and gas. India relies on imports for most of its oil and gas, which means it needs reliable partners. Canada should be the supplier of choice.

Canada can help meet India’s energy demand with reliable, responsibly produced oil and gas that is committed to emissions reduction.

Not all oil and gas is created equal. Many of India’s top oil and gas suppliers — like Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Qatar — are not always reliable and have poor records on the environment, governance, and social standards.

If you’re not getting your oil and gas from a responsible, reliable producer like Canada, where are you getting it from?

Where does India get its oil and gas?

India depends on imports for about 85% of its oil and 45% of its natural gas. In 2021, its biggest suppliers were Iraq, Qatar and Saudi Arabia; countries that are not always reliable and do not share democratic values.

Importing more oil and gas from a stable supply source like Canada would improve India’s energy security — and help reduce emissions — in the long run.

India’s transition to alternative and renewable energy is decades away.

Today, only about 1% of India’s energy supply is met by renewable energy like solar and wind. Meanwhile 44% of India’s energy supply is met by coal, followed by 32% from oil and gas.

Although supply of renewable and alternative energy is expected to grow over the next 20 years, as India’s population grows, overall demand for energy is expected to grow even more. The importance of natural gas is rising. LNG from Canada can help India reduce reliance on coal, while providing reliable energy.

As India gradually transitions to a more diverse energy mix, oil and gas will continue to remain critical. It should come from Canada.

Canada can help meet India’s energy needs.

Canada is one of the world’s largest producers of oil and natural gas, and leads the world in environmental protection and social standards.

India needs reliable, affordable, responsibly produced oil and gas now, and will long into the future.

As India continues to need oil and gas for decades to come, where will you get yours from?

Look to Canada.

For a reliable trading partner. For energy security. For a commitment to reducing emissions. And for responsibly produced oil and gas.
