‘PSUs, private & foreign cos must power oil & gas sector’

Speaking at the valedictory function of Urja Sangam, he complimented ONGC Videsh Ltd (OVL), the overseas operations arm of national hydrocarbon company Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Engineers India Ltd (EIL) and IndianOil’s Barauni refinery for their Golden Jubilee.

The minister said that public sector oil & natural gas companies have made tremendous contribution to the industry’s growth and development of India. They have not just remained a source of supply to every nook and corner of the country but have also joined for rescue and relief operations whenever the country has needed their services.

Pradhan added that the whole world trusts the administrative capabilities and decision-making prowess of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Three hundred students from premier institutions of the country were specially invited at the Urja Sangam so that they could understand the feelings of our Prime Minister and take the nation forward, the minister pointed out.

“On the call of our Prime Minister — a true nationalist — let us work to lower petroleum imports by 10 per cent,” the minister appealed.
