LNG price: Downward slide noticed
Jul 26: After reaching a peak of $6.68/mmbtu on June 15, 2016, the price of rich gas from RasGas saw a downward climb to $6.67/mmbtu this week.
8In contrast, spot cargo prices have been significantly lower.
8A spot cargo from EG LNG based out of Equatorial Guinea to Shell's Magdalla (Hazira) terminal was priced at $5.22/mmbtu recently.
8Similarly, another cargo from Nigeria LNG Ltd unloaded at PLL's Dahej terminal went for $5.53/mmbtu.
8When the RasGas price was ruling high, an Australian cargo came in, at a price of $6.95/mmbtu
8The differential between spot and RasGas price is high at present and this is causing resistance among buyers for long term gas.

Business opportunities in urea-ammonia plants-I: Rs 18,000 crore investments on course
Jul 22: The government seems to be not wasting time in pushing through investments in new Rs 6000 crore urea-ammonia plants anymore.
8Soon after approvals have been given by the cabinet, the NTPC-Coal India combine has floated RFQs for 2200 MTPD single stream ammonia and 3850 MTPD urea plants in Sindri, Barauni and Gorakhpur.
8The total investment is a massive Rs 18,000 crore and these projects are all meant to come up within a three to four year time frame, including the contracting process.
8Since these projects are pushed straight from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) and personally supervised by Nripendra Misra, the Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, they are likely to go ahead smoothly.
8What is more, the contracting process for these urea ammonia process is uncomplicated and award of contracts can be expected in the next six to eight months.
8The Modi government wants to claim credit for kick starting these projects in the forthcoming UP assembly elections and in the General Elections in 2019. With an eye on over 160 assembly segments in eastern UP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will kick start the new investment process by laying the foundation stone in Gorakhpur
8The Gorakhpur fertiliser unit used to produce Swastic Chaap Urea and was the second biggest industry in this region after North Eastern Railway. Its sudden closure in early 1990, rendered thousands of people jobless. The BJP feels that the revival of the plant could in turn revive its fortune in this region.
8"By laying the foundation of the AIIMS and the revival of the fertilizer unit, the NDA government has fulfilled two promises which Modi had made in the run up to his 2014 election campaign. Both projects would certainly change the scenario of eastern UP,” stated BJP genral secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak.
8Similar political traction is expected from the other two units at Sindri and Barauni as well.
8Expect a lot of action on this front from the business development point of view.

Business opportunities in urea-ammonia plants-II: Should an oil company be involved?
Jul 22: Should an oil and gas company be part of a consortium that wants to invest in fertilizer plants in India?
8The answer is perhaps a "No".
8Reason: India does not have a comparative advantage in making fertilizers because the cost of imported gas is too high.
8Imports will always be as much as $100 per tonne cheaper than domestic production and manufacturers will be perpetually on government doles.
8If a new government comes in, it may decide to import urea instead of supporting high cost production.
8This is precisely why existing urea manufacturers in the private sector are reluctant to join in and groups such as Tatas are keen to sell their fertilizer assets.
8ONGC has somehow extricated itself from the JV
8The point to note that IOC is not in the JV between NTPC and Coal India but the official note says that it will join in later.
8While the economics are debatable, from the perspective of a supplier of equipment and services, this is a gigantic business development opportunity.

Business opportunities in urea-ammonia plants-IV: Get all the information from us
Jul 22: There are about Rs 40,000 crore of new investment coming up in the sector.
8We are proud to claim, immodestly perhaps, that we have developed one of the world's most sophisticated project monitoring softwares. It comes integrated with a CRM package.
8We capture hundreds of parameters around a project in the software.
8The software is also capable of generating hundreds of pages of detailed reports from its MSQL database, giving you dozens of ways to slice up the information.
8At the backend, we only employ engineers to feed in primary data from our contacts around the country.
8Importantly, it is not a static but a dynamic software that moves with a project, giving you scores of updates, from pre-planning to commissioning.
8The software can forecast future project movements based on existing progress parameters.
8For example, in the KG-DWN-98/2 block, we know exactly how far the project has progressed and we can estimate project activities, from one month to a year and for a longer period as the project moves beyond the selection of consultants.
8In fertilizer projects, we know the exact stage of contracting of three ongoing fertilizer projects with an investment of Rs 18,000 crore.
8Regular interactions with key owner contacts, potential consultants as well as equipment and service providers allow us to bring you updates as and when any of the many parameters we monitor changes. The change can happen in a week or in a few months. An alert will go to you as and when they occur.  An update can be a minor one like the postponement of an RFQ date or a major change that involves multiple parameters.
8We spend the bulk of our time providing you verified contacts associated with a project -- at the level of the owner or the contractor or sub contractor -- along with their telephone numbers.
8Our archiving system allows you to keep track of how the project has moved over time. Every change is captured in our archives.
8The scale of our ambition is vast and so we are still filling in parts of our software. We now have updates on select high value petroleum projects. As for fertilizer projects, our other area of specialization, we have captured the full gamut of activity around all projects.
8A business development executive usually exudes confidence on his coverage of his area of operation but he will be surprised with what the software can throw up.
8A live analyst will always be there to support you. You just have to pick up the phone and call.
8Click on the "Projects" button on our sites, www.indianpetroplus.com or www.indianfertilizer.com and go to the products and services page to know more 
8Don't forget to fill up the Registration form. One of us will get back in touch with you.

DOF receives 5 brownfield urea-ammonia investment proposals
Jul 21: A total of five brownfield ammonia-urea investment proposals have been received by the DOF from private and public sector companies.
8These proposals are over and above  six other proposals that involve the revival of defunct fertilizer units.
8Three of the proposals are from the private sector.
8Of these, work has kick started only for one private sector proposal.
8The other two project promoters are yet to take a firm decision on going ahead with their proposals.
8Nevertheless, it makes sense for business development managers to keep in touch with these promoters for possible contracts for supply of gas.

30-year energy demand projection: Frightening scenario projected under BAU
Jul 20: A comprehensive study released recently shows promises for carbon reduction by 2030 by countries in the Paris Climate Change and thereafter is still likely to bring about an increase in temperature of more than 3 degrees by 2010.
8To be able to stick to a 2 degree change, the pledges for carbon reduction will have to be more ambitious.
8The paper exclusively looks at India's role in this Business as Usual (BAU) and Low Carbon scenarios and, through a series of complex modeling exercises, arrives at India energy requirements over the next 30 years, until the year 2047, under the two scenarios.
8The data builds CAGRs of consumption, production and import dependence under both scenarios for coal oil and gas to arrive at some very interesting conclusions.
8The BAU scenario is quite frightening. It shows a massive increase in import dependence for all fossil fuels.
8Import dependence for coal increases from 18% in the base year to 57% in 2047; in the case of oil it increases from 77% in 2012 to 90%, and for gas from 22% in 2012 to 43% in 2047.
8The total import dependence for all fuels increases from 31% to 59%.
8Increases of this order are clearly unacceptable from the energy security point of view.
8This comprehensive paper is a must read for analysts involved in the oil and gas sector in India.

Unanswered questions in GST Bill-I: Inclusion of subsidy in GST will cause working capital problems in fertilizer companies
Jul 19: The GST Bill will have implications for the fertilizer sector.
8Section 15(2)(f) of Model GST Law says that transaction value shall include subsidies provided in any form or manner, linked to the supply.
8The unanswered bit here is that: At the time of stock transfer, whether GST will have to be paid on the value inclusive of subsidy?
8The problem is that inclusion of subsidy for GST would increase the subsidy to be claimed and hence, working capital issues will crop up.
8On the issuance of Form C by companies other than oil marketing companies or resellers, the factual position is that natural gas is an input for other industries such as fertilizer.
8Then again, interstate sale of natural gas is subject to CST @ 2%.
8The question is: During GST regime, whether concept of Form C would apply for companies in fertilizer production in the GST regime?
