India’s state oil refiners are planning an aggressive push into natural gas in coming years to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s goal of making the fuel a bigger part of the country’s energy mix.

State-owned oil companies - Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum - are planning to raise gas contributions to between 5 and 15 per cent of their incomes over the next few years, up from nearly none now, company executives said.


 
New Delhi: Fuel retailers Indian Oil Corp. Ltd., Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd. and Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd. are expanding their network of liquified petroleum gas (LPG) dealerships by appointing more than 6000 new distributors, the oil ministry said on Friday.

This will mainly be in rural areas and in addition to the locations for which selection has already been made and the process of commissioning distributorship is underway, the ministry said in a statement.


 
Reliance Industries and its partner BP plc of UK have submitted to the government a $2 -2.5 billion plan to bring to production India's deepest gas discovery by 2021-22.

The partners yesterday submitted to the Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) a field development plan (FDP) for the MJ-1 gas find, which is located about 2,000 meters directly below the currently producing Dhirubhai-1 and 3 (D1 and D3) fields in the eastern offshore KG-D6 block, sources with direct knowledge of the development said.


BPCL plans to raise $500 million via bonds
Posted on 26th October 2017
 
Mumbai: State-run Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd (BPCL) will shortly hit the market to raise $500 million to partly fund its planned capital expenditure of Rs8,000 crore for this fiscal, two people aware of the development said.

“We are planning to raise $500 million shortly. We are still working on the timeline and the instrument we would be using to raise the funds,” a senior BPCL official said on condition of anonymity as he is not allowed to speak to reporters.


 
Shares of all three state-owned oil marketing companies (OMCs) were trading higher by up to 4% on BSE in early morning trade after the government cut the excise duty on both branded and unbranded petrol and diesel by Rs 2 a litre from Wednesday.

Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) and Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) have gained between 3% and 4%, extending their gains for the past 2 days on the BSE.


 
Mumbai: Wary of being left behind in the race for renewables and electric vehicles, oil marketing companies are quietly drawing up plans to expand their modest presence in renewable energy space.

Indian Oil Corp. Ltd, the largest of the three big oil marketers, is exploring opportunities for setting up battery charging stations and battery replacement facilities for electric vehicles in its petrol pumps. “We are also looking at opportunities for manufacturing and retailing lithium-ion batteries,” the company said in its annual report for 2016-17.


 
Shares of the state-run oil marketing companies IOC, BPCL and HPCL dived up to 2.8% after Moody’s Investors Service said that the state-owned fuel retailers have to increase borrowings. IOC, BPCL, and HPCL will have to go in for increased borrowings to sustain high dividend payments and capital spending this fiscal, keeping their credit metrics weak, Moody’s Investors Service said yesterday.

 
New Delhi: State-owned fuel retailers Indian Oil Corp. (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd (HPCL) will go in for increased borrowings to sustain high dividend payments and capital spending this fiscal, keeping their credit metrics weak, Moody’s Investors Service said on Tuesday.

The rating agency expected dividend payments by the three companies to drop modestly in 2017-18, but remain higher than in 2015-16. The government expects to receive Rs67,500 crore of dividends from all state-owned companies in 2017-18, less than Rs77,000 crore estimated to have been received in 2016-17, but more than double than Rs30,800 crore in 2015-16.


 
Shares of the IOC, BPCL, and HPCL tumbled on the news that government may ask the oil marketing companies to absorb further increase in global crude oil prices. The stock of the nation’s largest company Indian Oil Corporation fell as much as 6.2% to the day’s low of Rs 408; shares of another state-run refiner Bharat Petroleum Corporation plunged 8.4% to the day’s low of Rs 489. Shares of Hindustan Petroleum Corporation lost 8% to the day’s low of Rs 443.7.

 
Bharat Petroleum, which has just been upgraded to a Maharatna company, today said it has lined up capital expenditure of Rs 1.08 trillion for the next five years.

The public sector oil retailer will spend the money on capacity expansion of refineries as well as marketing and upstream activities, its chairman and managing director D Rajkumar told reporters at a post-AGM press meet here late evening.
