In a more competitive market, it is expected that most of the production of nitrogenous fertilisers will occur where raw materials are the cheapest and that countries with scarce natural gas resources like India will import most of their needs. However, fertiliser production has been a priority for India during its development, and it is now an important part of the local industry. The prospect of making available the infrastructure to import and use LNG will allow this industry to reduce its energy intensity and become competitive in an international market. Moreover, increased attention towards saving energy is essential for an energy intensive industry. The former RPS policy allowed inefficient processes to linger, but this opens the possibility for large energy savings today.
