India’s imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) rose 4.5 percent in April on a yearly basis for the second consecutive month following a drop in February, according to the latest data from oil ministry’s Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC).

India imported 2.28 billion cubic meters of LNG or about 1.68 million tonnes last month.

The costs of these imports were at $0.6 billion compared to $0.8 billion in April last year, the PPAC data shows.

India’s domestic natural gas production rose 5.1 percent to 2.66 Bcm.

India currently imports LNG via Petronet’s Dahej and Kochi LNG terminals, Shell’s Hazira plant, and the Dabhol terminal operated by Ratnagiri Gas and Power.
