News About Indraprastha Gas
The government has increased prices of APM gas by over 100 % to $4.20 per million British thermal units. The APM gas price increase will come into effect once the central government notifies it. APM gas accounts for over 90 per cent of IGL’s gas consumption. Apart from 2.2 million standard cubic metres of gas a day (mscmd) under APM, IGL also buys .308 mscmd of gas from Reliance Industries KG D6 block and .4 mscmd of regassified LNG.
Administered price mechanism (APM) gas is a term used for gas blocks awarded to state-run energy firms on nomination basis. The base price of APM gas supplied by state firms will rise to $4.2 per million British Thermal Units (mBtu), the same as the rate approved for Reliance Industries, bringing about near-uniformity in the cost of the fuel in India.
An estimated 20 per cent rise in prices of compressed natural gas (CNG), following the rise of natural gas prices may reduce demand for CNG cars in the short-term and raise bus and autorickshaw fares. But, in the long run, industry experts feel CNG cars would continue to sell.
CNG costs Rs 21.9 for a kg in Delhi. After the 20 per cent rise, it would cost Rs 26.28 a kg, still cheaper than petrol and diesel at Rs 47.93 and Rs 38.10 a litre, respectively.
"CNG would continue to be far cheaper than other fuel options. I don't think CNG vehicles would be any less attractive in the future," said R C Bhargava, chairman, Maruti Suzuki India.
P Balendran, vice president, GM India, said: "Despite any quantum of hike, CNG will be a success. There will be no major impact on demand, as the overall operational cost of these vehicles will continue to be less that their petrol counterparts.
Indraprastha Gas Ltd (IGL), the sole supplier of compressed natural gas (CNG) in the national capital region, It may increase gas prices by around 1/5th soon.
IGL can be expected to maintain and improve profitability in coming quarters – even if the current quarter may show slight downturn due to decision making delays.
