Russia sees a huge potential for pipeline gas supplies to India, Energy Minister Alexander Novak said in an interview with Russia Today TV channel.
"The potential is huge because as of today India consumes a relatively small volume of gas and a large part of the population needs modern energy consumption services. I think, in terms of energy resources consumption India will be growing faster than any other country. That is why the potential is huge there both in terms of natural gas supplies and liquefied natural gas supplies," Novak said.
Earlier the minister said that Russia and India were discussing a possibility of a joint project to build a gas pipeline to India.
