Oil & Gas Conservation Fortnight (OGCF) is a significant annual event of the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, which is organized jointly by Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA) and Public Sector Oil & Gas Companies every year from 16th to 31st January. Various people centric activities are conducted during this fortnight with a focused attention on conservation of petroleum resources and environment substances. PCRA’s mission is efficient energy utilization and environment protection leading to improvement in quality of life.

Since its formation in 1978, PCRA has remained engaged to create awareness amongst masses on importance, benefits and methods of conserving precious petroleum products leading to environment protection, energy security and sustainable development. During FY 2015-16, India spent Rs. 4.82 lakh crores on imports to fulfill domestic demand. Fuel can be saved by employing energy efficient equipments and techniques, better driving and cooking habits, reducing wastage and switching to alternate fuels besides others. Reduced consumption of petroleum products leads to minimal environment GHG emissions. Petroleum fuel is made of hydrocarbons which also emits harmful gases on combustion. These emissions have an adverse impact on human life and environment contributing to climate change.

In the previous years, PCRA’s theme for OGCF 2015 was “Save Money” with a tagline “Indhan Bachao, Jan Dhan Badhao” and for OGCF 2016, the theme was “Clean Fuel” with the tagline “Indhan Ho Swachh, Jan Gan Rahein Swasth”, based on the health issues prevailing at that point of time. PCRA will now be organizing OGCF 2017 during the period from 16th Jan.’2017 to 31st Jan.’2017. Suggestions are invited for “Theme” from the public at large, taking into Domestic critical issues, pertaining to fuel & energy conservation, on which PCRA should bring awareness among masses.

Solar energy is the best natural endless clean source of energy and fortunately we india is blessed with plenty of sun light.Still unfortunately we are not world leader in tapping and utilising solar energy and lag far behind other countries in this field.Ideally it should be given top priority over other sources of energy and used where ever possible then obviously gas and oil will be less used & saved/conserved.With these point in mind THEME AND TAGLINE IS ATTACHED AS PDF FILE
