Adani-Total JV to seek fuel retailing licence

1 min read

The Adani Gas and French energy major Total SA will soon seek government nod to open retail fuel stations in India, said the former’s chief executive officer, Suresh Manglani, on Wednesday.

“Definitely we will take full benefit of the expertise and strength of Total,” Manglani had told reporters on an earnings call, adding that the intent was to become a full-service operator providing a multi-fuel offering.

The joint venture, Total Adani Fuels Marketing Pvt Ltd, will shortly apply for a licence under the new liberal fuel retailing rules, Manglani said.

Last October, Total SA had agreed to acquire a 37.4% stake in city gas distributor Adani Gas Ltd for around 5,700 crore – marking the French energy major’s biggest bet on India’s clean energy push.

The proposed acquisition also marked the largest foreign direct investment in India’s city gas distribution industry, with the deal giving Total joint control of Adani Gas, along with the Adani group.

Despite a slowing economy, India remains a lucrative market for global oil companies as it is the world’s third largest oil consumer and importer.

In October, the government had eased fuel retailing norms, allowing non-oil companies to set up petrol pumps to boost competition. This June, the government also allowed entities to set up liquefied natural gas (LNG) stations anywhere in the country as India aims to raise share of gas in its energy mix to 15% by 2030 from the current 6.2%
