NEW DELHI, November 1. /TASS/. Russia and India will organise a working group on ground transportation of hydrocarbons from Russia to India, Russia’s Deputy Minister of Energy Yuri Senturin told TASS on Saturday.
The group will be organised before end of November, and its first meeting is due in early 2015, he said.
The deputy minister participated in a meeting of a Russia-India working group on energy and energy effectiveness.
“We have agreed to organise a working group to consider possible on-ground supplies of hydrocarbons from Russia via Central Asia to India,” he said. “The working group will have regular meetings beginning from the first quarter of the coming year.”
The plans to organise a working group were announced in 2013, where India’s major oil and gas corporation ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation) suggested building an oil pipeline from Russia. The Corporation’s deputy head Nair said the pipeline could cross Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Besides, the parties discussed extending to the border with India of the gas pipeline from Russia to China.
