A cumulative capacity of about 38,000 MW power plants is facing the coal shortage having stocks less than a week.
8Most of the shortage of coal is where the mode of transportation of fuel is through Rail.
8The Union Government has proposed a Rapid Loading System in December 2018 to minimize the loading time of coal in rail racks and enhance dispatch. But, there is no sign of any such development.
8Moreover, pending dues with CIL, supply more than committed quantity, and expire of coal linkage are several reasons for having less stock of coal
8How will the power developers cater to its peak demand in the coming summer season with such scarcity of coal

8A state power generation company has submitted a proposal to MOPNG and GAIL for the supply of 9.75 MMSCMD of gas to set up 1700 MW cumulative capacity of power plants.
8MOPNG has given assurance of the gas availability would be a mixture of both domestic and RLNG priced between 8$-12$ per MMBTU.
8The next step is the appointment of a feasibility study consultant

A bunch of new projects coming up can profitably supply LNG profitably to India at a delivered price of $6/mmbtu.
8A benchmark price of $6/mmbtu has been set as being "affordable" for a low-income country like India.
8This is the LNG price at which a significant uptake in demand can be expected. Incidentally, this is also the cut-off price at which sensitivities have been conducted for gas out of new discoveries out of the KG Basin.
8Pushing delivered gas supplies to India at this price will mean a combination of low cost upstream gas supply, low liquefaction costs and competitive freight rates
8Interesting more than existing LNG projects, it is the new breed of LNG projects coming up, which seem to fulfill this litmus test.

The Mozambique LNG project -- where the Indian trio of ONGC, OIL and BPCL are heavily invested -- will have the shortest distance to India's regasification plants.
8A 2025 projection shows that the lowest shipping cost to India, after Qatar, is from Mozambique, at a mere $0.7/mmbtu.
8Even so, will the project be able to deliver LNG at the affordable cost of $6/mmbtu. If it can, then Mozambique can provide an almost unlimited amount of LNG from subsequent brownfield iterations to its existing projects.
8But will it able to hold the price line at $6/mmbtu?

Delivering low cost LNG to India will mean that some of these LNG projects will have to be able to access upstream gas at between $1-2/mmbtu.
8Find out how that has become possible for new projects
8Another big milestone has been the lowering of liquefaction costs, there is likely to be a significantly fall, thereby bringing down processing charges.
8The other imponderable is freight cost, and here an exhaustive set of projections up 2025 seem to indicate that a low delivered price for LNG is indeed quite possible.

This would potentially starve Venezuela of their last major ‘cash’ buyer although simultaneously it would cause a headache for some Indian refiners that prefer Venezuelan grades.

Vedanta's end-to-end business model, wherein the company offers exploration blocks it had recently won to service providers seems to have evinced lukewarm response so far.
8The main targets are the three service companies -- Baker Hughes, Halliburton and Schlumberger.
8All three seem to claim that they are busy right now pursuing a whole lot of other leads in India, which could well be a way of saying that they are only mildly interested as of now.
8Also, the exploration-to-production model is not really suitable to these companies. They are more interested in production enhancement programmes like the ones offered by ONGC and OIL rather than pure-play exploration models. Even here, they are very tentative, as they ponder over the risks involved, particularly of the kind noticed in OIL's Baghjan field, which was meant to have been offered under a Production Enhancement Programme -- where miscreants just walked in and switched off the lines, causing permanent damage to the field.

The RIL-BP discoveries in the KG Basin will begin producing gas in the not too distant future, BP's attention, as a result, is getting focused again on the Indian gas market.
8The multinational uses its by-now-famous scenario analyses to predict a faster transition to a gas-centric Indian economy.
8BP is now projecting that gas supply and demand can grow dramatically, but only if the country were to adopt a blue sky policy.
8Soon enough, it will start using global research agencies to come out with the policy initiatives needed for such a blue sky transition, like it did to influence policy makers when it first entered India through a tie-up with RIL. None of the projections made then came true but then who really cares.
8Equipped with the policy formulations from such research, its Indian partner, RIL, will do the necessary lobbying at the ground level to ensure that policies are accordingly fine tuned in New Delhi.
8All of this is going to start when the new government is in place, with all efforts culminating by the time first gas from the new KG Basin discoveries hits Indian shores.
8This is classical BP style of working. An intrepid oil & gas scholar must write his thesis on it one day. This website can provide all the research material for free.

Know more about the Siliguri-Parbatpur trans-border product pipeline build by NRL. Only 5 km of the 130 km pipeline is in Indian territory.
8The pipeline is built with a subsidy of Rs 285 crore from the ministry of external affairs.
8It is a dedicated HSD pipeline.
8The issue now is the pricing of HSD to Bangladesh.
8Clearly, if the HSD is entitled to a 50% excise duty relief that NRL elicits from the central excise department for all its production in Numaligarh, and the pipeline is built on the government of India's money, will these factors be taken into account while pricing the product
8Or else, what NRL will do is to use the subsidy given for industrial production in India's North East for subsidizing the sale of diesel to Bangladesh. Click on Reports for more.
Comment: NRL enjoys a 50% excise duty relief on its production of HSD. The relief was given to create industrial opportunities and jobs in the North East. Instead, if it ends up transferring the subsidy to Bangladesh, it will defeat the very purpose for which the excise relief was granted. Details

The new destination in the energy sector seems to be the off-grid market.
8There is strong interest in evolving the utility business model beyond electricity service provision for global investors and funding is getting easier.
8Front end players are experimenting with ‘value-stacking’ add-on services like internet, water, productive appliances, financial products and services, and other retail goods.
8The point to note is that millions of households that have never had a reliable grid connection are a ‘blank-slate’ opportunity to redefine the utility-customer relationship, and the utility business model altogether.

Two countries facing US sanctions -- Iran and Venezuela -- have a lot to do with India.
8The year is 2007. Iran was India’s second-largest source of oil imports, totaling 367,000 barrels per day (bpd). The country is a stone’s throw from India, so close that both territories shared a land border before India’s independence from the British.
8In comparison, India’s imports from Venezuela are a paltry 28,000 bpd in comparison, not surprising since Caracas is about 10,000 miles from New Delhi.
8Cut to 2013. India’s oil imports from Venezuela skyrocket to 441,000 bpd, accounting for 12 percent of the country’s total oil imports. Meanwhile, imports from Iran plummet to 200,000 bpd
8Suddenly, Venezuela doesn’t seem so far away.
