Abstract : This paper demonstrates how existing knowledge on technical and business developments can be organized, categorized, and subsequently used to determine key assessment indicators to better understand the state of RD. Thus, it offers an approach to then employ the indicators for benchmarking of India versus other leaders in oil gas RD, with the intention of identifying gaps and opportunities for innovative as well as incremental advances in important RD areas. A few examples of such historical innovations are given, and the approach when employed for India then results in a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) - a summary that can be greatly beneficial as a starting point for planning and implementation efforts aimed at improvement of RD contributions in this sector.
