Retail prices of diesel and petrol are at an all-time high in India. Is this because of the rising crude oil prices, or is there another explanation? Amit Bhandari, Energy and Environment Studies Fellow, offers an answer.
The Coronavirus pandemic has caused crude oil prices to crash almost 40% even as Saudi Arabia and Russia pump more oil into the market. Fears are rife that this crisis will hit demand. There are repercussions on the U.S., the world’s top oil producer, on India, one of its new clients, and on the Gulf Cooperation Council countries
U.S. President Donald Trump's recent visit to India gave a boost to bilateral energy ties. To really benefit, India’s state-owned oil companies should consider investing in U.S. shale oil. The U.S. is politically and economically stable and investors are not subject to arbitrary action. Indian companies should only be financial investors, not operators of assets, and bet on companies with manageable debt and efficient operations rather than short-term winners
The outcome of the U.S. presidential elections could have a significant impact on the deepening Indo-U.S. bilateral. The partnership has grown substantially in the last two decades resulting in a deepening of economic and strategic relations. Defence dominates the strategic partnership and also stimulates the economic engagement. The newly signed BECA agreement is a testament to this. The next U.S. administration's policies will be critical for India, given repeated Chinese incursions into Indian territory on the Line of Actual Control at the border, the U.S.-China rivalry and China's ambitions to dominate Asia. Gateway House has an extensive repository of primary research, analysis and reporting on the Indo-U.S. bilateral, addressing issues such as trade, technology exchange and defence cooperation.

Oil prices, arms exports and conflict are inter related especially when it comes to the U.S. Its arms industry grows when high prices and conflicts coincide. This has kept West Asia on a perennial geopolitical boil. This infographic charts the highs and lows of U.S. arms sales, especially in the light of conflicts centred around West Asia
The Indian prime minister’s visit to the United States had both spectacle and substance, with the Houston event earlier this week casting a spotlight on the Indian American community. But the U.S.-India bilateral relationship is much more than a single event and negotiations on several issues will go on, says Ambassador Neelam Deo, Director, Gateway House, in this podcast
The global energy scenario has changed in every way – be it in demand, supply or energy type – in the last two decades. The only unchanged component has been the currency of energy trade: the U.S. Dollar. Lately, though, the Chinese Yuan has emerged as a challenger. Can the Indian Rupee be a third contender?
India is the second largest emitter of methane in the world. But methane-cracking has enormous economic potential. It can help India become a high-technology manufacturing powerhouse by producing a steady supply of methane-derived, advanced carbon materials and hydrogen-energized transportation
