Vancouver: Petronas, which leads the Pacific NorthWest LNG Ltd. project to build an export terminal at Prince Rupert in north-western British Columbia, is reported to be in talks with the state owned Indian Oil Corp. Besides China and Japan, India is also a potential buyer of Canadian crude. India’s Reliance Industries and Indian Oil Corporation are seen as potential major buyers of Canadian crude. In 2012-13, India’s oil imports grew by 9.22% to $169.25 billion from $154.96 billion in 2011-12. In the current fiscal, crude oil imports are seen rising to about 196 million tonnes from the 184.795 mt it imported in 2012-13, but relatively low prices have been a solace. India imports crude oil primarily from West Asia.
