India currently has just four LNG import terminals and will need to build another 11 over the next seven years to boost its import capacity from the current 20 million tons. The LNG plans are part of a strategy aiming to expand the national electricity network and move households away from wood for heating and cooking, replacing it with electricity and also reduce its dependence on coal as a primary energy source.
