Engaging the World

India’s energy policies have been considerably influenced by international factors. India’s choice of oil suppliers was influenced by the colonial legacy and then by socialist economic policies and India’s relations with the Soviet Union. Further, India’s relations with Russia, the Middle East and Africa influenced India’s attempts to acquire oil assets in these regions. On gas policy, US initiatives, regional security considerations, and India’s relations with Pakistan, Iran, Myanmar, and Bangladesh prevented the development of gas pipelines to India from or through these states. On nuclear energy, prevailing international economic, security, and environmental regimes influenced India’s civilian nuclear imports.
