Diversifying India’s Energy Sources: A Strategic Move to Maintain Positions in the Global Energy Market”.

India has long been a significant buyer of Russian crude oil, despite the sanctions imposed on Russia by Western countries. However, the country has now started to reduce its purchases, citing transportation and payment issues. Indian refineries are shifting their focus towards purchasing crude oil from the United States and the Persian Gulf.

Indian companies such as Bharat Petroleum, Indian Oil, and private processor Reliance Industries have increased their purchases from the US in response to challenges faced while importing Russian oil. This shift in purchasing behavior is seen as a strategic move to diversify India’s energy sources and maintain good relations with Western countries.

The decrease in Russian exports of petroleum products has led Indian refiners to seek alternatives to Russian oil. The logistical challenges and political considerations have influenced this shift in purchasing behavior, as India aims to maintain its position as a major player in the global energy market.

While European countries continue to import Russian oil products despite sanctions, Indian refineries have been exporting refined petroleum products to Europe using the same Russian barrels that were imported. China has also shown a demand for cheap oil like India.

Overall, changes in India’s oil purchasing patterns reflect geopolitical landscape and economic considerations. The focus is on diversification and maintaining relationships with various global partners while mitigating risks associated with dependence on any single supplier or market.
