NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's Petronet LNG Ltd wants to partner with ONGC Videsh Ltd (OVL), the overseas arm of India's biggest explorer Oil and Natural Gas Corp Ltd, to pick up a stake in an upcoming exploration and liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Qatar, a top company official said.
This will be Petronet's maiden venture into the natural gas exploration and production business and overseas LNG terminals.
"We will be signing a non-confidentiality agreement with QatarGas in the next one week or so and then evaluate the project," Prabhat Singh, managing director and chief executive officer of Petronet told Reuters on Wednesday.
