Nagarjuna has trimmed its Q-2, 2019 losses a little in relation to Q-1 but not by enough. First half losses are higher than that of the same period last year
8The point to note is that the company is currently running on one of its two urea complexes

What is the "premium" you can extract from India's deepwater gas discoveries over the global benchmark gas prices?
8This is the question now at play with two gas tenders, one from ONGC and the other from the RIL-BP combine -- to be finalized soon.
8There is a government announced ceiling price of $8.43/MMBtu for October 2019 to March 2020 for such gas, but the price that will be solicited will be much lower.
8Domestic gas prices are now going to be determined by international LNG prices, beyond that it remains to be seen whether a premium, as ONGC is seeking, can be solicited.
8What domestic players will get is a higher cost for gas, which will include liquefaction, transportation and regasification elements, than well head prices in an exporting country but quite a bit of this buffer gets whittled down by an unreformed gas market.
