Indraprastha Gas, Mahanagar Gas and Gujarat Gas-Domestic natural gas price is likely to be cut by 20% in October – positive for IGL/MGL/GGL but negative for ONGC/OIL
The domestic natural gas price, which is set by the Centre after every six months, is expected to fall nearly 20% in October from the current $3.7 per million British thermal units (MMBtu). While this is likely to impact negatively for upstream companies like ONGC and OIL, the downstream gas distribution companies like Indraprastha Gas (IGL), Mahanagar Gas (MGL) and Gujarat Gas (GGL)  would be benefitted from this event as the input cost for gas distribution companies will go down. Gas distribution companies like IGL and MGL normally benchmark CNG price with Petrol and Diesel and sell it a discount to make it attractive. In the current environment, domestic petrol and diesel prices are inching up with firm to stable crude oil prices (likely to remain with OPEC production cut decision) and IGL/MGL/GGL can have lower input cost. So they can have room for volume expansion or margin expansion; therefore positive for IGL, GGL & MGL.
