RIL's E&P division: Running out of bandwidth?

Oct 18: RIL's E&P segment, managed by PMS Prasad, seems to be the most poorly performing among all of RIL business lines as of now
8Losses continue to mount as high water cut and sand ingress have whittled down gas output. The MA oil field was finally shut down last month while the gas wells continue to pump increasingly lower volumes.
8The Panna-Mukta asset is also pushing lower volumes due to natural declines
8The company sold its CB10 block to Sun Petro
8RIL's two remaining shale JVs in the US are also performing poorly and the company is possibly looking at exiting them.
8The performance of its CBM blocks has been, at best, lackluster and it does not look like the company is very keen on giving them a big push given their low output incrementality.
8The focus is on the $6 billion investment in the R-Cluster, Satellite Cluster and the MJ development.
8But here again, the structure is modular, with lower upfront investment, of around $2 billion to start with, of which 60% will be RIL's share, with the rest being paid out of proceeds from new gas produced. Depending upon the price of gas, the fields are expected to bring in a reasonable return on investment, probably as much or perhaps lower than its other business lines.
8Had it not been for BP's coaxing (as the multinational needed a face-saving exit from a $8 billion investment), RIL would perhaps have not proceeded with further E&P investments in the KG Basin.
8The company is selling the accompanying evacuation pipeline from the KG Basin to the west coast to an asset management company for $2 billion.
8The 30% stake sale for $7 billion to BP is the high point of RIL's E&P business, and it came at a time when the company needed the money to fund its various expansions.
8As of now, RIL seems to be running out of bandwidth, when it comes to the E&P segment, exhausted by multi-billion dollar arbitration disputes and the sheer unpredictability of the entire business model.

Rs 700 crore LPG cavern project: Completion in Q4, 2020

Oct 18: The Rs 700 crore Mangalore LPG cavern project envisages storing 1,00,000 MTPA of imported Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in unlined rock caverns near Mangalore to maintain the supply chain to rail or road tankers or for evacuation through ship tankers.
8The proposed enhancement of strategic storage comprises of three components namely Storage Cavern, Pipeline, and Jetty. The underground storage cavern of Propane will have a capacity of 40,000 MTPA and that of Butane of 60,000 MTPA.
8Moreover, the Jetty and Cavern will be connected by 9 km long 24 inches diameter pipeline for carrying heated Propane and Butane.
The project is in a preliminary stage but work is expected to pick up soon.

8Project Event: RFQ for surveying work (topographic survey, geotechnical survey) is expected by December 2018.
RFQ for a DFR consultant is expected by January 2019.

Coal power plants face a double whammy

Oct 22: The specific challenge in transporting coal from mines to demand centers and lack of availability is working into the power sector in two insidious ways.
8In Maharashtra, for example, the state genco's 10GW owned coal generation capacity is operating just at 50-60% PLF.
8Low PLF is forcing the state discom to purchase power from the exchange.
8Power exchange prices have been doubled up in September due to lack of coal in merchant plants, forcing discoms to pay higher.
8This state of affairs has extended to other states as well.

8In Maharashtra, for example, the state genco's 10GW owned coal generation capacity is operating just at 50-60% PLF.

8This state of affairs has extended to other states as well.
