«Very interested» in strong energy partnership with India, says US energy secretary

Granholm said she is really interested in doing it through technologies that eliminate methane and reduce methane from natural gas pipelines, production, and combustion

Washington, June 18 - Neftegaz.RU. The Biden administration is «very interested» in continuing to ensure that the U.S. has a strong energy partnership with India, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has said.

Granholm, the 1st woman energy secretary of the US, made the remarks while responding to a question during a hearing on the department's budget by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
She told lawmakers during the Congressional hearing:
  • I'm very interested in continuing to ensure that India and the US have a strong partnership and there are a lot of energy tools that can help India achieve its own goals which are very aggressive as well
Senator Roger Marshall said energy is a national security issue:
  • It's a tool that we can use to help or harm our allies or enemies
  • I'm especially prioritising our relationships with the quad, Australia, Japan, and India
Marshall asked:
  • There's certainly an opportunity to help our ally India with natural gas and expand our natural gas to those
  • How do you feel about the Department of Energy's plan to strengthen that energy partnership within just specifically as it pertains to natural gas exports to them?
Granholm said she is really interested in doing it through technologies that eliminate methane and reduce methane from natural gas pipelines, production, and combustion.
She noted:
  • And that is another strategy that we're working on...to make sure that we can have natural gas that is carbon free
