Thursday, 18th February, 2016; ‘ETV Dialogue on Unlocking India’s Hydrocarbon Potential’ at ONGC Academy, Dehradun

ETV News Network, one of the Largest Private Regional News Television Networks, has initiated a dialogue series to deliberate on issues that could further boost the rapid strides of India into the future and is aimed at crafting a blueprint for the country’s sustainable growth. Apart from informing and entertaining its viewers, ETV News Network has always remained in forefront in educating its viewers through its various award-wining programs.

ETV News Network along with the support of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas organized the ETV Dialogue ‘Unlocking India’s Hydrocarbon Potential’ on Thursday, 18th February, 2016 in Dehradun. ‘ETV Dialogue on Unlocking India’s Hydrocarbon Potential’ was the first initiative in the Dialogue Series which brought together the leading stakeholders for policy debate to find ways and means of strengthening the country`s hydrocarbon, oil & gas sector. The dialogue was positioned as a thought leadership platform and focused on the challenges before India's hydrocarbon sector and highlight opportunities in the Indian hydrocarbon sector.

The Hydrocarbon Dialogue was supported by major players in the sector and Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) was the presenting sponsor. Indian Oil, Oil India Limited and EIL were the associate sponsors. India Core was the knowledge partner for the series.

Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon’ble Minister of State - Independent Charge, Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, was the Chief Guest. In his inaugural address, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan mentioned that there are significant opportunities in the hydrocarbon sector despite challenges. He made an impassioned pitch for more research in the area of technology. He praised the exacting standards of Bombay High project of ONGC and stated that organisations like ONGC are contributing significantly in nation building. The minister said that it is a challenge to provide petroleum products at low prices to common man who wants to benefit from the fall in the crude oil prices. He pointed out that the Government has reduced the price of petrol and diesel multiple times in the recent past.

Shri Pradhan also highlighted the significant initiatives of the Modi Government like Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana where loans worth about Rs 1 lakh crore have been sanctioned to small entrepreneurs; record increase in devolution of resources and devolving 42% of resources to the states; eliminating discrimination while giving the royalty to the states, funding road safety initiatives etc.

The Guest of Honor- Shri K.D. Tripathi, Secretary, Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas shared the work being done by the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas and the achievements, challenges and opportunities ahead in the hydrocarbon industry in India.

He stated that ETV is committed to doing its job of highlighting the good work being done by the government.
