  Growth-induced structural changes have precipitated a phenomenal increase in energy consumption in the economies of the Asian region. Importantly, Asia’s burgeoning demand for oil and gas is a crucial factor in the current world energy market and has occupied centre stage in the contemporary discourse on global energy security. This book explores one aspect of such transition, envisaging the emerging pattern of energy interdependence between India as a major energy consuming and importing country and the prominence of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries as the major source of energy supplies for India and the Asian region as a whole. The book argues that the evolving pattern of energy related links and tendencies will act as a stimulant to boost bilateral economic relations between India and the GCC to an elevated trajectory.    


Dr. Samir Ranjan Pradhan is currently Senior Researcher at the Gulf Research Centre (GRC); a Dubai based premier independent policy research and consultancy organisation. He is a trained economist and obtained his M.Phil and Ph.D degrees from the School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. His main areas of research interests include: energy security in the perspective of international relations; national, regional and global dimensions of India's energy security; developments and changes in the global oil and gas market with special focus on India, Gulf and China; regional cooperation and energy security in Asia, and India's economic relations with West Asia in general and GCC in particular. He has important national and international publications to his credit.
