Bharat Petroleum Plans To Invest In Petrochemical Project

Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd. (BSE:500547) is planning to invest INR 4.8 billion in the propylene derivative petrochemical project in Kochi, which was earlier planned as a joint venture. Environmental clearance for the project is expected in about a couple of months. Bharat Petroleum has identified six technology partners for the project. They will be chosen after the clearance is through, Prasad K. Panicker, Executive Director of BPCL’s Kochi refinery said at a press conference here on January 19, 2015. He said that the Bharat Petroleum Board had already given its approval for the investment subject to environmental approval. Panicker said that propylene for the project will be from the expanded refinery. The capacity of the refinery is being raised from 9.5 million tonnes a year to 15.5 million tonnes.

Government To Sell Stake In Entities

The Government of India intends to divest stake in Oil India Limited (BSE:533106) and GAIL (India) Limited (BSE:532155). Finance Minister Arun Jaitley discussed possible disinvestment candidates with Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, however nothing is finalized. Government planed to sell 5% stake in Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. to raise INR 170 billion-INR 180 Billion. But the double impact of tumbling global oil prices and the rising subsidy burden has left the ONGC stock battered. "Government is looking at new subsidy sharing formula. As far as ONGC is concerned, they have some issues regarding subsidy sharing formula. Let's have relook on the issue. I am sure ONGC will get better price," Dharmendra Pradhan, said. "Well I am not ruling out ONGC but today's meeting was on other oil companies. I can tell you all options are open and I am watching the market and getting enough stocks in place, when the market is good I will do," the source added. The other companies might be Oil India, GAIL and Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd. (BSE:500547).

BPCL To Raise Funds

Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd. (BSE:500547) is planning to raise INR 40 billion for the expansion of its Kochi refinery and to fund its petrochemicals venture, said three banking sources. State Bank of India (BSE:500112) has received the mandate to raise funds. "We will be financing the project through both internal accruals and external financing," said a senior BPCL official.
