For reasons that have not been explained, only nine of the 18 onshore blocks offered last year have been awarded, and only four of those had, up to last week, completed development agreements. Government’s constant intervention in regulating the prices of petroleum products and natural gas has led to poor response from global upstream companies during the last two NELP rounds i.e. NELP VII and NELP VIII.

Supply contracts negotiated in the 1970’s when natural gas prices were high and supplies scarce were often of long duration; several extended up to 20 years. It is unfortunate that the government has not learnt any lesson from the APM gas policy’s failures. Production from APM gas fields of ONGC and OIL is declining. Even today, a major chunk of domestically produced gas, particularly from the fields operated by state-run ONGC and OIL, is under-priced through Admistered Price Mechanism (APM). In fact, demand from certain quarters, of late, has been made to sell the gas produced from RIL operated prolific KG D-6 block at discounted prices.
