Gas regulator moves to World Trade Centre

Vol 10, PW 24 (05 Apr 07) News in Brief

Until now the office of India’s new downstream oil and gas regulator has been located at the Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell on Lodhi Road in Delhi.

That’s about to change. Contacted by PETROWATCH, a senior official at the new Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board confirms the regulator will soon take up office space at the World Trade Centre near Bengali Market in Delhi’s Central Business District, where it will initially share space with Indian Oil’s marketing office, but later acquire space of its own.

“We asked IOC to spare some office space and they agreed,â€‌ we hear. By June this year the regulator will have a fully functioning office of its own in the WTC.

For PETROWATCH readers, this can only be good news: our office is also in the World Trade Centre! When formally appointed, we promise to keep you fully informed of who walks in and out of the regulator’s office, as no doubt many of you will to try to win him round to your point of view.
