MUMBAI, INDIA: India Gas Solutions Pvt Ltd, a 50:50 joint venture (JV) company of BP Plc and Reliance Industries (RIL) has appointed Vinod Tahiliani as its new CEO.

Tahiliani has over 25 years of international experience in the oil & gas business and project financing. He joins IGS from BP, where he was most recently the vice president, strategy & commercial for BP India. For BP, he has developed gas value chain businesses and worked on oil, gas and power developments in India, Angola and Vietnam.

India Gas Solutions (IGS) has employees seconded from both companies, bringing deep experience in the gas business, both in India and internationally.

IGS focuses on sourcing and marketing of natural gas in India. The company administers the existing gas sales contracts to customers for production from the KGD6 block and is actively pursuing opportunities for marketing R-Series gas and LNG imports. The JV also focuses on infrastructure to accelerate transportation and marketing of natural gas within the country.

“The need for assured gas supplies to fuel the exponential energy demand and growth of India is crucial and our IGS partnership is well positioned to contribute significantly in this respect,” said Sashi Mukundan, region president and country head, BP India.

“Tahiliani brings with him the expertise to lead IGS as we look to further develop the business. Demand for gas has been growing at an exponential rate and we anticipate natural gas to emerge as the preferred choice of fuel given its properties as a cleaner and sustainable fuel source,” added PMS Prasad, executive director, RIL.
