DelhiDesk State-run Engineers India Ltd (EIL) is exploring the development of a salt cavern-based strategic crude oil reserve in Rajasthan, in a bid to help India achieve energy security. EIL is working with DEEP.KBB GmbH, Germany, to develop salt caverns for crude oil storage. India currently has strategic crude oil storages at three locations, but the addition of a salt cavern-based reserve would boost energy availability in the country, which relies on imports for 85% of its energy requirement. EIL is also expanding its international operations, with the Middle East a key focus.
