Share

Pradhan was speaking at ADNOC's headquarters on the sidelines of an event marking the first cargo of crude oil from ADNOC, to the Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserves Ltd (ISPRL) after it has been loaded and was en-route to India.

Oil MinisterDharmendra Pradhan on Saturday expressed concern about the rise oil prices but said it was too early to predict the impact of USA sanctions on his country's imports of Iranian oil after Washington withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal.

Pradhan will lead an official delegation to the UAE from May 12 to 14, the statement added. Also, there has been a rally in worldwide crude oil prices due to a combination of factors such as Opec and Russian Federation cutting supplies, falling production in Venezuela and geopolitical tensions. Vishakhapatnam storage has a capacity of 1.33 million tonnes (9.77 million barrels) of crude oil, Mangalore has a capacity of 1.5 million tonnes (11 million barrels) and Padur can stock 2.5 million tonnes (18.37 million barrels). "We see a huge growth opportunity in the downstream market", Al Jaber told CNBC during an investment forum hosted by the company in Abu Dhabi Sunday. United States has also evinced interest to collaborate with India on its crude oil reserve programme as part of a strategic energy partnership that covers sectors such as oil and gas, power, renewable energy and coal.
