Petrowatch is the most visible, credible and authoritative oil and gas news brand in India. Published uninterrupted since February 1997, this website is a subscription-only fortnightly market intelligence website on the Indian oil and gas industry staffed by investigative journalists in Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad, each with decades of reporting experience working in the mainstream Indian and foreign press.

Our subscribers:
Our readers are middle to senior managers, geologists, directors, managing directors and senior-level decision-makers of multinational and Indian companies operating in the country’s oil and gas industry. Most users are managers working for private and public sector Indian companies looking for advance commercial and political information on the country’s exploration, production, midstream and downstream sectors. Overseas companies such as British Gas, Cairn Energy, Shell, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Hardy Oil and Petronas use our website as a ‘must-have’ entry tool to understand the complex operating environment in India where few outside know it has an oil industry.

What we cover:
Our stories give you the ‘inside track’ on India’s heavily state-regulated oil and gas industry with insights on government policies, the dominant personalities, bureaucrats, politicians, industrialists and institutions that control this heavily regulated sector. Also covered is future seismic, drilling, rig and other onshore and offshore upstream activity planned by operators ONGC, Oil India, Reliance, Cairn, Essar and a host of small private sector players including Hardy, HOEC, Selan, Interlink, Joshi, Sintex, Jay Polychem and others. Particular emphasis is placed on the fast-expanding LNG sector, with spot LNG news, import terminal construction, gas pricing, legal notices against the government and planned multi-million dollar infrastructure tenders. Our site also provides real-time reports on LNG cargo arrivals landing at the country’s four LNG import terminals at the ports of Dahej (operated by Petronet-LNG) and Gujarat (operated by Shell and Total) as well as Kochi in Kerala (Petronet-LNG) and Dabhol (Ratnagiri Gas & Power).

Gossip and market whispers:
Our market intelligence provides detailed insights into the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas (MoPNG) in Delhi with its intricate hierarchy of bureaucrats from the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) reporting to the senior-most bureaucrat of the day and ultimately to the oil minister. Also covered is the Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) responsible for ensuring compliance with Production Sharing Contracts (PSCs) between oil companies and the government for exploration blocks won from nine rounds of the New Exploration Licensing Round (NELP). Covered in equal measure is work at the Petroleum & Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) set up to regulate the fast expanding City Gas Distribution (CGD) sector and delivery of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) for vehicles and Piped Natural Gas (PNG) to homes.
