The next boost to the offshore oil & gas industry may not come from the oil & gas sector itself but from offshore wind.
8Around 40% is the commonality between the offshore oil & gas and offshore wind industry. For the Indian industry, mostly involved in support functions, and with significant indigenous capacity build-up in platform construction, the percentage will be much higher
8The business worldwide is expected to touch $1 trillion.
8The monsoon season is when capacity utilization is expected to be high from offshore wind complexes.
8According to projections made up to 2040, India, prodded by policy makers, is going to play a big role in the Indian offshore market. It get past gas-based power generation capacity quickly, as it is expected to be a cheaper soruce of power.
8Currently, India's ambitions are modest at creating 5 GW by 2022 and 30 GW by 2030 but this can change dramatically under a sustainable development scenario
8Based on technical potential, India can cover more than its domestic electricity demand from offshore wind alone.

What kind of cabon pricing will India have going ahead, up to the year 2050? This projection is coming in from a 100-member technical team deplyed for the estimation job. The planning divisions of large oil & gas companies must incorporate these pricing matrices into scenario planning.
8Also projected is that half of the new vehicles sold will be electric by the year 2032. This data will need to be incorporated into the forecast as well, when designing refinery capacity expansion.
8See projections of two wheeler share, and when will that reach 100% for India, as also of commercial vehicles, in terms of what percentage of it will be electrified over the years
8And a policy planner must take into account one important fact: that the global crude oil demand peak may come as early as 2021, even though it may come later in India.
8Clearly, planning scenarios will have to change, from 10 to 15 years to a much shorter duration, possibly 5 years or even less under such rapidly changing paradigms. The demand for crude is now dependedent on new factors, such as the learning curve in battery production and how quickly cost of lithium batteries falls.

Electricity distribution sector in India is at a cross-road. The verage cost of supply for most electricity distribution companies is already in the range of Rs. 7 to 8 per unit, and in some cases, it is close to Rs. 9 per unit! This cost is also increasing at around 5% per year.
8But renewable energy is now available at a far cheaper rate.
8Today, even small, kW scale, solar power is available at around Rs.4 per unit.
8As a result, most commercial, industrial and high-end residential consumers, who pay Rs. 5 to 9 per unit, just as energy charges, are looking at ways to reduce drawal (not dis-connecting from the grid) from DISCOMs to reduce cost of electricity.
8They are aggressively pursuing options such as rooftop solar, net-metering, open access and captive generation.

The recent hike in freight rates has seen Indian ship owners play the risky game of capitalizing on the flareup by withdrawing plans to install scrubbers which would allow them to use low cost high sulphur fuel oil (HSFO) post IMO 2020.

8The ship owners however claim that they are reassessing the need for scrubbers as they keenly watch how low sulphur fuel oil price evolve post IMO 2020.
8But there are some who claim that owners may be looking at short term profits while ignoring what can be in store in the long run.

The shift to gas is being heralded as an environmental friendly move, and India is seen as one of the biggest gas markets in the world going ahead.
8While investments in gas are being stepped up, some banks and financial institutions have already stopped funding gas projects.
8The underlying assumption is that gas is no longer that much more environment friendly when compared to coal, if fugitive emissions are taken into account.
8The window of opportunity is getting narrower in the gas sector, and if the window closes elsewhere in the world, it won't be long before it does so in India as well.
8Those who invest in the gas sector in India needs to keep this mind.

Even as Indian refineries begin a massive expansion of their capacities, the projection is that the world will have a refining over capacity by 2025. And surplus capacity is projected all the way till the year 2040
8Around 2.1 million barrels per day of refining capacity may have to be shut by 2025. Unless a hefty duty protection is available to Indian refineries, and the oil marketing companies can run the new capacity at global scale and efficiency, they might run into a serious road block.
8In the context of these fresh projections, should refining capacity expansions in India be re-examined? 
8Those which run on doles, such as the Numaligarh refinery expansion which gets a 50% excise duty relief and various other concessions, and for which crude is going to be ferried all the way from Paradip and the finished product sent back through a parallel pipeline to the mainland from Upper Assam where the refinery is located, may become unviable even as it is built.

What is the "premium" you can extract from India's deepwater gas discoveries over the global benchmark gas prices?
8This is the question now at play with two gas tenders, one from ONGC and the other from the RIL-BP combine -- to be finalized soon.
8There is a government announced ceiling price of $8.43/MMBtu for October 2019 to March 2020 for such gas, but the price that will be solicited will be much lower.
8Domestic gas prices are now going to be determined by international LNG prices, beyond that it remains to be seen whether a premium, as ONGC is seeking, can be solicited.
8What domestic players will get is a higher cost for gas, which will include liquefaction, transportation and regasification elements, than well head prices in an exporting country but quite a bit of this buffer gets whittled down by an unreformed gas market.
