DelhiDesk India’s import of crude oil from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has declined to an all-time low of 46% in April 2022, as per industry statistics. The increase in India’s crude oil purchases from Russia has led to a decrease in OPEC’s share. OPEC accounted for 72% of India’s crude imports in April 2022, mainly from West Asia and Africa. However, after Russia’s attack on Ukraine last year, Russian crude oil became available at a discounted price, leading to a rapid increase in imports from Russia. Russia’s share in India’s imports has increased to 36% or 1.67 million barrels per day in April this year, while OPEC’s share has come down to 46%.
