BG Group Chief Executive Chris Finlayson said: "We have been active in India for more than 15 years and it is a large and important market that we understand well. We expect the country to lie third among LNG importing countries by 2025, behind Japan and China.

"Our long-term agreement with GSPC adds another dimension to our global LNG portfolio with the addition of material new supplies to a fast growing market. We look forward to building our presence in the country."

The share price fell 1.05% to 1,174.50p by 15:35 on Wednesday.
