Domestic Operations

2Q FY20 revenues for domestic E&P operations stood at Rs. 447 crore reflecting a decrease by 39.3% Y-o-Y mainly due to natural decline in production in D1-D3 field of KGD6 and impact of cessation of production from MA field. Revenue declined by 8.8% on Q-o-Q basis due to lower commodity price realization and deferment of oil sales due to weather conditions in the west coast of India. The segment EBIT was Rs. 60 crore for the quarter.


KGD6 block produced 5.45 BCF of natural gas in 2Q FY 20, lower by 51.6% Y-o-Y and 3.7% Q-o-Q

Tapti decommissioning is in progress as per schedule with expected completion by end FY22.

WTI oil prices averaged higher by 9%, NGL realization dropped by 17% and HH gas prices declined by 16%. Volumes were 6% lower Q-o-Q. This resulted in revenues being lower Q-o-Q.

US commodity prices declined for both oil and gas during 3Q CY2019. WTI oil prices averaged lower by ~6% Q-o-Q. NGL basket price was down 13% Q-o-Q at $16.0/bbl, due to ample supplies of NGLs.
