INDIAN oil companies are set to clinch major business deals in Libya.

He said that expertise of both public and private sector companies would be availed for implementing proposed city gas distribution projects in cities of Libya.
â€œLibya has also assured me that visa problem of Indian businessmen would be resolved,â€ he said. Mr Deora had an hour-long meeting with Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi. Mr Deora said that during his visit to Yemen, its President Ali Abdullah Saleh assured him that he would consider allocating more exploration blocks to the Indian oil companies. Mr Deora informed the President that the Indian oil PSUs are keen to make greater investment in Yemen in the entire hydrocarbon chain and would examine the scope to increase oil PSU funding of training Yemeni personnel in their stateof-art training facilities back home.
India has agreed to provide all assistance to Yemen in standardising its bidding system for exploration blocks, which include developing a dedicated software suitable for Yemeni conditions, he said.
It has also discussed that ONGC could join Yemeni companies to develop the discovered fields.
