The government is seeking to tighten its grip further on E&P operations in India.
8The bill will forbid states like Nagaland to draw up their own E&P rules
8Then again, it will make the collection of government dues much more stringent, and a collector will end up demanding dues from an oil & gas company.
8The government has usurped the right to call for any kind of information from an operator
8It can also call for sharing of oil and gas infrastructure
8Hydrogen and other forms of energy will also come under the petroleum regime

The hydrogen truck will become cost-competitive with the traditional diesel truck by 2030
8And while hydrogen trucks will be used for long-distance routes, electric trucks will be preferred in shorter inner-city routes
8There will be no place for diesel in trucks after 10 days, that is the projection.
8In India then, will LNG be the way out for heavy vehicles or will it be hydrogen or electric?
8Are we opening up too many varying fuel dispensing channels? Someone will have to hold the stranded assets then, unless an LNG station is converted into hydrogen dispensing one.
8In 10 years, only the least cost fuel dispensation channel will survive

Some updates on Petronet LNG:
8New domestic gas can impact spot and short-term LNG volumes  but eventually gas demand will be much higher (70-90mmtpa in CY30 vs. 46mmtpa now). Meanwhile, the company says that the gas ceiling is expected to go up to USD5-6/mmbtu in the next revision for offshore gas.
8One of Kochi's primary customer, FACT, is cannot operate at a rate higher than $ 8/mmbtu whereas spot is at $10/mmbtu
8The use or pay was invoked on tolling customers, where 2 out of 3 have not paid but as per contracts are liable. Discussions are on, and will be resolved shortly, maybe by this quarter.
81,200 kms radius of virtual pipeline can be set and economics is favorable. LNG is 25-40% cheaper than diesel. Initially, payback will be longer (less than 5 years in steady state) and offtake low but market will develop. 50 stations are inaugurated. PLNG targets 3.5mmtpa volumes by CY30.

Here is a counter-argument to gas that is gaining ground that we cannot ignore beyond a point as our policy makers talk of transiting into a gas-dependent world. For, gas advocates have long argued that gas can serve as a “bridge fuel” until renewable energy can be developed at a larger scale.
8Today, this idea is obsolete for three reasons.
8First, the climate crisis is now urgent: remaining atmospheric space is so limited that there is no room for any additional fossil fuels.
8Second, since wind, solar, and energy storage and other supporting technologies have fallen rapidly in cost and are deployable at a large scale, there is no longer a need for a bridge. Third, recent findings on the extent of methane leakage from gas infrastructure undermine claims of environmental benefits over other fossil fuels.
8Furthermore, now that renewables are competitive, additional gas tends to displace renewable energy as well as coal.
8Gas starts to look more like a wall than a bridge, impeding rather than enabling the energy transition.
8There is more heft in these arguments now than ever before, and it is always good to listen to the other side carefully.

That Shell's flawed business model is at work is evident from the fact that it had no business whatsoever in the winter, and now its terminal suddenly has quite a few cargoes lined up, mostly from GAIL and occasionally from RIL (which because it has cornered a significant volume of KG Basin gas is less dependent on imported gas).
8There is however a cancellation of cargo out of Dahej, which is rare and is perhaps indicative of the stress that the gas industry is undergoing due to COVID related demand issues in India.
