Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) Related news
NEW DELHI: The government’s plan to create an integrated oil company will likely involve Oil and Natural Gas Corp taking over either Hindustan Petroleum Corp (HPCL) or Bharat Petroleum Corp (BPCL) but won’t result in a mega merger leading to the creation of an industry giant.

In his February 1 Budget speech, FM Arun Jaitley had said the government proposes to “create an integrated public sector oil major which will be able to match the performance of international and domestic private sector oil and gas companies”.

State run Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC)'s standalone net profit rose almost three-fold in the December 2016 ended quarter, but missed street estimates. The year-on-year jump in profit came against a high exceptional cost item reported in the comparative quarter of the last financial year.

The Company has posted a net profit of Rs 4,352.33 crore against Rs 1,465.88 crore in the same period a year ago. In the October-December 2015 quarter, the company had a reported an exceptional cost item of Rs 3,616.41 crore against no exceptional cost reported in the same quarter in 2016.

India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corp has received the first installment of $19 million from Venezuela’s state oil firm Petroleos de Venezuela towards recovering pending dividend, a senior company official said. PDVSA and ONGC Videsh Ltd, the overseas investment of arm of state-run explorer ONGC, last year signed a deal allowing the Indian firm to get 17,000 barrels per day of oil to recover dues of about $540 million.

“PDVSA is marketing our share of oil. Every month we will get an installment,” N. K. Verma, managing director of ONGC Videsh told Reuters late on Monday. He said price of crude from San Cristobal project is market linked.

Many oil companies, including state-run ONGC, have received notices from the tax department to pay service tax on cash calls paid to consortium partners as well as on cost petroleum and royalty paid to the government. According to an industry source, tax notices adding up to $1 billion have been served on these companies over the last few months. An ONGC executive, requesting anonymity, confirmed to FE that the company has received a service tax demand of Rs 2,000 crore.

The country’s largest hydrocarbon producer Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) plans to spin off its difficult fields into a separate division that includes Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation's Deen Dayal Upadhyaya discovery in the Krishna Godavari (KG) basin.

Besides, the company has chalked out a detailed plan for development of its existing KG basin assets after integration with GSPC facilities. It was this integration that added value to the $1.2 billion deal with GSPC, D K Sarraf, chairman and managing director, ONGC, told Business Standard.

New Delhi: The oil ministry has appointed G.S. Singhvi, a former Supreme Court judge and Competition Appellate Tribunal chairman (Compat), as the government’s arbitrator in a $1.55 billion dispute with Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) over alleged extraction of gas from a reservoir connected to that of state-run Oil and Natural Gas Corp. on the east coast.

Singhvi, who retired from Compat earlier this month, will consult an arbitrator chosen by RIL for identifying a third neutral arbitrator and the place of arbitration, said a government official, who asked not to be named.

State-run Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC) on Friday approved the plan to acquire the entire 80 per cent participating interest of Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation Ltd’s (GSPC) block in the Krishna- Godavari basin at $995.26 million.

ONGC will also pay part consideration of $200 million to GSPC towards future consideration for six discoveries other than the Deen Dayal West Field, which will be adjusted upon valuation of the discoveries subsequent to approval their field development plans by the Directorate General of Hydrocarbons. The transaction would be documented by signing a farm-in agreement with GSPC.
