India has become the second largest importer of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) with six crore deposit free household connections.

Announcing this, Petroleum and Natural Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said the LPG distribution will spread to eight crore connections in the next fiscal year.

Pradhan was speaking at the inauguration of WLPGA 2019 Asia LPG Summit in Delhi on 5 Feb 2019.

Secretary, Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Dr M.M.Kutty, CEO, WLPGA James Rockall and President, WLPGA & CEO, Ultragaz, Brazil, Petro Jorge Filho also spoke during the inaugural session.

Pradhan also inaugurated an Exhibition on the industry.

The summit is organized by the World LPG Association (WLPGA), which is the voice of the global LPG Industry representing the full LPG value chain.

The primary goal of the Association is to add value to the sector by driving premium demand for LPG, while also promoting compliance to good business and safety practices.

The WLPGA brings together over 200 private and public companies operating in more than 125 countries involved in one, several or all activities of the industry; develops long-term partnerships with international organisations; and implements projects on local and global scales.

The Association was established in 1987 and granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council in 1989.
