Qatar national liquefied natural gas exporter, Qatar Energy, said it builds a trustful partnership for energy supplies in India.

“We remain committed to being the trusted partner for energy supplies in India and around the world,” Qatar Energy said in a statement, late on Wednesday.

According to the report, India suffering with its worst power crisis in five years had asked Qatar to expedite delivery of 58 liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargoes that had been delayed.

Meanwhile, India pressures Qatar for delayed LNG, as power crisis mounts in the country due to COVID.

K. Mishra, head of finance at India’s top gas importer, Petronet LNG Ltd, clarified that his firm had deferred the lifting of 50 cargoes, using ‘downward flexibility’ allowed in its long-term deal with Qatar.
