About O&G@20

Collaboration between the traditional hydrocarbon sector and innovative startups can play a major role in addressing the challenge of meeting the rising demand for energy and bringing down emissions.

As part of an initiative to foster, nurture and incubate new ideas from startups, 10 oil & gas PSUs (ONGC, OIL, IOCL, BPCL, HPCL, MRPL, GAIL, EIL, NRL and Balmer Lawrie) have earmarked a fund of Rs 300 crore to promote entrepreneurship among young Indians. The initiative aims to create an ecosystem that will enable energy startups with innovative technologies to grow, aided by mentoring, funding and incubation support from established oil and gas PSUs.
