Our Initiative

With so much of oil and gas reserves in the State it is expected that the people through the Government exploit these resources to the optimal extent. With this in view, the Government of Assam as played the role of the promoter and stake holder in some major energy companies like Assam Petrochemicals Limited, Brahmaputra Cracker & Polymer Limited and Numaligarh Refinery Limited.

Apart from that, the Government of Assam has also ensured an conducive operating environment for central public sector oil and gas companies like Oil India Limited, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Bongaigaon Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited.

With the inception of Assam Hydrocarbon & Energy Company Limited, the Government of Assam has taken its first steps in the exploration and production area, thereby starting a new era in the State's oil and gas sector.


Renewable Energy

Energy is a basic requirement for economic development. Every sector of the state economy - agriculture, industry, transport, commercial and domestic - needs inputs of energy. The economic development plans implemented since independence have necessarily required increasing amounts of energy. As a result, consumption of energy in all forms has been steadily rising all over the country.

The growing consumption of energy has also resulted in the country becoming increasingly dependent on fossil fuels such as coal and oil and gas. Rising prices of oil and gas and potential shortages in future lead to concerns about the security of energy supply, which is needed to sustain our economic growth. Increased use of fossil fuels also causes environmental problems both on local and global scales.

Energy self-sufficiency was identified as the major driver for new and renewable energy in the state.

The traditional biomass need to be replaced by modern renewables such as wind, solar, hydro power and advanced biofuels.
