Imphal, Feb 10:

Petroleum Conservation Research Association under the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Government of India in collaboration with the State Level Co-ordinators’ Oil Industry is organizing “Oil & Gas Conservation Awareness Drive (Saksham-2021)” from January 16 to February 15, 2021.
Governor of Manipur Dr. Najma Heptula in her message while wishing the awareness week a grand success said that with development, the consumption of petroleum products is increasing rapidly, while the reserves are static. More consumption also has an impact on the environment due to the emission of harmful particles in the atmosphere.
She said, “As all of us know, India has limited availability and production capacity of petroleum products. While India’s production capacity of Crude Oil is less, the demand is very high and, therefore, a shortfall of several metric tons has to be imported. The import of petroleum products has a direct impact on our economy.
“As we all are well aware that conservation of petroleum products has assumed significance, as human beings cannot do away with it at the present technology level. This is especially more so for countries like ours which depend on imports. Thus the need of the hour is to conserve petroleum products to the maximum extent, by way of optimum use, use of alternate sources of fuel and by putting into practice every possible fuel-saving methods, be it in transport of domestic or other sectors.
“Oil & Gas Conservation means their better and more efficient use with regard to economic, social and environmental costs, resulting in higher efficiency, minimization of wasteful practices and protection of the environment.
“There is tremendous scope for fuel conservation and energy efficiency in India, be it in the transport, industry, domestic, agriculture or commercial sectors by merely getting rid of wasteful practices. It has been proved that by conscious driving and proper maintenance of a car, the fuel expenses can be reduced by about 20%.”
