Hydrocarbon Industry in India

According to a report by IBEF, the oil and gas sector is one of the six core industries in India. It is of strategic importance and plays a pivotal role in influencing decisions across other important spheres of the economy. As per a recent report, the oil and gas industry in India is anticipated to be worth US$ 139,814.7 million by 2015. With India?s economic growth closely linked to energy demand, the need for oil and gas is projected to grow further, rendering the sector a fertile ground for investment.

Backed by new oil fields, domestic oil output is anticipated to grow to 1 MBPD by FY16. With India developing gas-fired power stations, consumption is up more than 160% since 1995. Gas consumption is likely to expand at a CAGR of 21% during FY08?17. It is said that by 2015-16, India?s demand for gas is set to touch 124 MTPA against a domestic supply of 33 MTPA and higher imports of 47.2 MTPA, leaving a shortage of 44 MTPA, as per projections by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Ministry of India.

Considering these figures, it is safe to say that there is demand for a Terminal Manager/Terminal Superintendent in the present and will be there in the future as well.
