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.

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.

(The website has started a Bulletin Board, in which topics of interest will be discussed and comments made. Go to the Bulletin Board button to air your views on this subject)
The fact that India has not elicited a single response from a foreign company to its recent exploration rounds is, ironically, a cause for quiet celebration in some quarters of the E&P industry. There is a certain lobby, led now by BP's India head, Shashi Mukandan, which has subtly yet successfully created the perception that successive governments and their policy formulations are to blame for "scaring away" foreign investments.
8This argument is motivated by a simple rationale: BP is the last surviving foreign E&P investor of any significance in India whereas all others have abandoned ship. The subtext, which is more nuanced and is meant to keep the government under pressure, is that all road blocks, if any, that stymies BP in any manner in India should be cleared as quickly as possible. The undertone is that if BP is miffed, it will send the wrong signals to the international community. With just one foreign investor to deal with, the government finds itself on the defensive when it comes to dealing with the multinational.
8The oil & gas lobbying in the corridors of power in New Delhi is often very intense, and it is easy for policy makers to succumb to pressures. BP, partners with RIL in the KG Basin, and both often work in concert in putting the government on the mat.
8Immense pressure was put on Shastri Bhavan to break up GAIL into its trading and transmission divisions, which would have made it easier for the RIL-BP combine to access the Indian gas markets. To be fair to the petroleum minister, he resisted the temptation to do so after a point. He figured out quickly enough that gas trunk lines -- like the one from Jagdishpur to Haldia and to his home state would never have been constructed if GAIL was left weakened. More trunk lines have to be built across the country in an environment where the IRR will be uncertain or even negative, and GAIL is the only company which will build them. Then again, will the price of gas be cheaper if GAIL is divided up? Not really. Gas prices in India are determined by the price of LNG over which India has little or no control. Pipeline tariffs are set by the PNGRB. All that GAIL can do is charge a higher marketing margin but such are pressures of a demand-driven market that usurious margins will never be tolerated. If GAIL is accused of misusing its monopoly, the promoters of the privately built East-West pipeline have had to occasionally fend off charges of gross overcharging as well.
8BP is an immensely powerful global company. International arbitrations -- such as the one that accuses BP-RIL of siphoning away $3 billion worth of gas from an adjacent ONGC block in the KG Basin --  is meant to be adjudicated by an independent bench and yet allegations were flung that one of the names meant to chair one such arbitration had links with BP. Eventually, the BP-RIL combine did win the award. The ruling also said that the government must also pay back the fat arbitration fees that BP-RIL duo incurred during the battle.
8Lobbying is a complex art and no one has mastered it better than BP. The multinational currently works in 72 countries and understands all very well how to control or persuade governments to do its biding. Once the award was announced, questions were raised in the corridors of power on the futility of opposing it. It would send the wrong signal to the investing world, it was silently argued, at a time when India was pushing for easier ways of doing business. The rule of international law would have no sanctity, the argument went.
8The government has done well in standing its ground, using all its legal prowess to challenge the arbitration order. And it really does not have anything to fear. Despite all the tall talk, BP's current investment in the KG Basin is not in billions of dollars. It is a mere $600 million, about the cost of a medium sized onland development programme of ONGC. The BP-RIL investment is modular in structure, after an initial $2 billion pump-in by the two partners (BP has a 30% stake), the proceeds of gas sales will be used to scale up the investment subsequently.
8The Indian government does not need to be apologetic if no foreign investments have come in during the new exploration rounds. This may well be because Indian sedimentary basins are not as prospective as others around the world at this point in time despite an enabling regulatory framework.
8Yes, some of the largest E&P companies in the world, from Shell to Total to Gazprom to BHP Billiton to ENI have tried their luck in India and all them went back without any success. But there is no reason for anyone to feel guilty about their departure. These companies dug ( or tried to) for oil, they did not find it, so they left. It is as simple as that. To put the blame on faulty policies is nothing but a facetious attempt to divert the debate and score a few brownie points.
8There is yet another point to note. BP is in India because it is compelled to do so. Having spent over $8 billion in India, its return on investment is highly negative. BP shareholders are going to raise a stink if they just pack up and leave, as they would have had, had they not sunk so much money into the frothy waters of the Bay of Bengal. Eventually, BP is unlikely to recover its investment but it must put up a facade that it would.
8Finally, India is too large a country for anyone to ignore. Fresh business development teams have been brought in recently by the likes of Exxon Mobil and Shell to New Delhi and Mumbai to tap India's vast potential. Others multinationals will follow suit. And if BP were to occasionally throw a tantrum, the advisory to the government will be to just ignore it Details

Oil marketing companies stock valuations are approaching what is now being dubbed as the "distress" zone.

8There are a range of other worries.

Adopting to rapid technological change seems to be the big new challenge for oil & gas companies.
8Today, for example, well construction and intervention tasks -- which make up typically 40% and sometimes as much as 70% of all costs -- that require months to complete might soon be possible in mere days or weeks.
8At a time of unprecedented technological advancements, the physical capacities and cognitive abilities of the oil and gas industry are leaping by greater bounds every year.
8For example, a number of drilling advancements at both the rig and downhole levels have helped producers reach targets previously impossible to consider.
8In this context, will ONGC be able to cope with the challenge?

There is also the fear among E&P companies of being left out of this big technological revolution. There is also the apprehension that if they do not embrace the revolution, their cost matrices may not measure up to hose of their more agile peers.
8Keeping this in mind, ONGC has decided to test out a model digitalization programme in Mumbai High
8A select set of well head platforms for optimization of gas lift wells and gas injection volume, thereby pushing up operational efficiencies.
8"We will use the best technology that is available," a top ONGC official told this website.
8It seems ONGC is willing to try out everything: from advanced analytics to improve drilling operations to harnessing previously unconnected or manualized pattern spotting by using monitors to anticipating unexpected downhole events, improving well placements, and foreseegi equipment failures.
8For ONGC, this is the first tentative step forward into the bold new digital world.

New technology is now driving change not just in drilling but across the entire E&P space in terms of:

8Better sub surface planning
8Automation of the prospect maturation process

8Reconsidering existing business models

The really big challenge for ONGC will be to bring about the organization change need to work in a digital environment
8The next generation operating model will require the building of cross-functional teams
8More centralized yet agile ways of doing work will have to be pushed through
8Eventually, robotic process automation can take on 80 percent, or even more, of the tasks executed today.
8More importantly,  ONGC will have to work with a new workforce as current labor-intensive tasks get automated
8The company will have to build capacities in areas such as agile coaching, data science, and advanced-tech stack planning.
8Changing interfaces with suppliers will require evolved tasks and profiles.
8These changes are expected to affect all groups inside ONGC and are likely to progress quickly, possibly within the next few years.
8It is only when new capabilities are developed, will ONGC be able to deliver more ambitious targets.
8The moot point is whether ONGC is capable of such quick and dramatic change

Is there really a need for back-to-back gas purchase agreements to get funding for an LNG project at a time when shortages are expected to be looming ahead?

8But there are other LNG projects which are racing ahead without such agreements in place, instead of betting on a market that will see a demand-supply gap "sooner than later".

With firm indications that global warming is now knocking on our doors, there are pilot plants sprouting around all over the world testing out the use of renewable power to gas alternatives.
8But the fact remains that the cost of all power-to-gas alternatives remains higher than the cost of fossil-derived natural gas even with the addition of an assumed €100/t CO2 carbon price.
8Even biomethane is more expensive and there is the additional problem of lack of adequate feedstock.
8The technology is now available for power-to-gas production
8But the point to note is that it will have to be the decarbonisation of the energy system that has to be the primary driver to pursue P2G (or indeed biomethane) objective.
8The entire effort will have to be driven by government policy rather than commercial economics.

OMCs are now being forced to take a hit of Rs 1/ litre by the government.
8The absorption could lower EBITDA by as much as 25%
8So far, there has been no word on compensation of under-recoveries on LPG and kerosene. There is a possibility of OMCs, upstream and government bearing a part of the burden.
8The mere return to subsidy regime increases the working capital requirement of the OMCs.
8The government could well be reverting to issuing oil bonds instead of compensating in cash. This may increase the interest cost substantially.
8This is also bad news for both Rosneft controlled Essar Refinery and RIL: a situation may come when they, unable to absorb the under-recovery, may have to shut their retail outlets

While ONGC thinks it has done enough to encourage better quality Jack Up rigs, the industry feels that it could have done much more. And what it has done is not going to make a difference and old rigs will continue to have an undue advantage.
8"It looks like ONGC has been unable to kick itself out of the mindset that it should look at eliciting a lower day rate rather than hiring a modern and efficient rig," an industry source told this website.
8"What will now happen is that the same old rigs, fully depreciated, will be back in service again with ONGC, with little productivity and efficiency gain for the company," the source added.

8Latest data shows that assuming a USD250/tonne fuel price spread between HFO and a compliant alternative, it is estimated that a scrubber investment payback period will be nine months for a VLCC, 12 months for a VLGC, 14 months for a Capesize, 17 months for an MR, and 18 months for a Supramax.

Also know more about how the High Sulphur Fuel Oil (HFO) market is going to change from 2020.
8The expected supply overhang has put pressure on HFO prices, and the current spread to MGO (0.1% sulphur content) for January 2020 is USD365/tonne.
8Given these spreads, find out more about why refineries are still facing a dilemma
8Also know more about how the shipping fleet will seek to minimise fuel costs by opting for the cheapest solution to comply with the regulations.
8The expectation is a blended alternative 0.5% sulphur fuel to be available at a discount to cleaner MGO. A synthetic compliant fuel blend can be found using the blended cost for LSFO with 1.0% sulphur content (low-sulphur fuel oil versus high-sulphur fuel oil (HSFO) with 3.5% sulphur content) and MGO with 0.1% sulphur to reach compliant levels of sulphur.
8On current 2020 forward prices, the synthetic blend is selling for about USD100/tonne less than MGO and narrowing the 2020 spread to USD246/tonne.

How safe is Mozambique from a business security point of view?
8The ONGC-OIL-BPCL trio is investing in an onland LNG facility in Mozambique unlike others who are dependent on reasonably safer offshore platforms.
8What are the factors which pose threats to the project?
8First, the emergence of violent Islamic extremism in northern Mozambique raised security concerns among investors.
8Secondly, there is a government risk factor: the Mozambican government is still negotiating and deciding the regulatory terms to the LNG export activity, including the royalty payments and other taxes to the projects.
8In addition, general government gross debt has ballooned from 40% of GDP in 2012 to 110% by 2017. A government too starved for cash is always a source for concern as they hold the power to unilaterally change the regulatory framework.
