ONGC Videsh Backed By ONGC Considers Acquisitions

Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. said it supports its overseas investment arm ONGC Videsh Limited’s move to seek increase in spending allowance and sees more acquisition opportunities abroad. "We support ONGC Videsh move to seek increase in spending allowance, which should be more than USD 1 billion. We see there is lot of opportunities for acquisitions. ONGC Videsh had sought greater financial autonomy to decide on investments of up to USD 1 billion without government nod to speed up acquisition of overseas oil and gas fields. As a corporate philosophy, we like ONGC Videsh to raise funds through debts.” ONGC Chairman and Managing Director D K Sarraf said in an interview after the 107th Annual General Meeting of Indian Merchants Chamber here.

ONGC Videsh Limited is seeking sale of assets. Videsh Limited, said,” The company may look at selling strategic stake in some of its exploration assets as and when required. We have a mandate to bring in as much equity oil and gas as possible. So as a policy we will not sell production assets but if a strategic partner is required in some exploratory assets we will bring them on board as and when required.”
