ONGC recaptures Rs 2-trn market cap as stock leaps 8% on higher oil costs

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has recovered its Rs 2-trillion market capitalisation (market-cap) mark as the stock energized another 8% to Rs 159.75 on the BSE in Tuesday’s intra-day trade on the rear of higher crude oil costs. The load of the state-owned oil exploration & production (E&P) organization was trading at its most significant level since November 2018.

The rising domestic gas supply and improvement in oil and gas acknowledgment should drive upstream organizations’ income development and valuations.

At 10:57 am; ONGC was trading 7.5 percent higher at Rs 158.60, with a market of Rs 199,523 crore, the BSE information shows. In comparison, the S&P BSE Sensex was down 0.09 percent at 59,246 points. In past one month, the stock has flooded 31%, as against a 2 percent ascend in the benchmark index.

The crude costs hit three-year high after Opec and partners decided to proceed with their oil supply plan in their most recent meeting. Opec+ consented to build oil supply by 400K bpd in November according to the prior plan.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, Russia and their partners, known as OPEC+, have confronted calls from big consumers, like the United States and India, for additional supplies after oil costs flooded more than 50% this year. Brent crude thundered above $81 a barrel on news that the gathering would remain with its arrangement for continuous extra production, as opposed to offering more stock to the market, the Reuters detailed.

Brent crude cost is at present at >USD 75/bbl, up 47% YTD, driven by recuperation in worldwide interest with opening up of economies. The US was hit by Hurricane Ida in July end, which has brought about interruption of production from Gulf of Mexico (GoM) of ~1.7mb/d in August. The International Energy Agency (IEA) anticipates that supply from GoM should standardize by Q4CY22.

With crude oil and item stock in lower half of the five-year reach and EIA assessing worldwide crude oil supply development to slack interest development in 2021 as worldwide recuperation keeps on social event pace, we see a potential gain hazard to crude oil costs, HDFC Securities said in area update.

We expect, in FY23E, ONGC (independent) to create 23.0 mmt of oil and 24.8 bcm of gas, and Oil India to deliver 3.2 mmt of oil and 2.6 bcm of gas. Expanding gas costs and rising Brent crude oil cost ought to further develop acknowledgment and thus drive income CAGR of 30-54% over FY21-FY23E for ONGC and OIL. ONGC ought to likewise profit from expansion in gas production by up to 12mmscmd over FY21-25E as production from its KG bowl obstructs, the financier firm said.
