NEW DELHI -- India has proposed to import shale
gas in liquid form from the US, a senior Indian government official said
The proposal was put forward during a meeting Tuesday
between US special energy envoy Carlos Pascual with his Indian counterparts in New Delhi,
the official, who declined to be named, told reporters.
"This is our expectation. This is only a proposal. We
proposed our [energy] needs are great," the official said.
"We hope they will share some of their natural resources if
they find it commercial."
The official declined to elaborate.
