    Reliance seeks GIs for petro products

    Reliance seeks GIs for petro products


    Monica Gupta & Gaurie Mishra / New Delhi January 30, 2006


    Application under scrutiny of controller-general of patents, designs
    and trademarks.


    Reliance Industries Ltd has filed a geographical indicators (GIs)
    application for its Krishna-Godavari gas and for its Jamnagar petrol,
    diesel and LPG.


    While a trademark is used to distinguish a good or a service of one
    enterprise from another's, GIs are used to identify goods having
    special characteristic and originating from a definite geographical
    territory.


    The application of the company, filed late last year, is being examined
    by the office of the controller-general of patents, designs and
    trademarks, which is the registrar of GIs.


    Officials in the department of industrial policy and promotion, the
    nodal authority for patents and trademarks, confirmed that the company
    had filed an application.


    If the company is granted GI, it will make Reliance Industries the
    authorised user of the products. A GI, which is valid for 10 years,
    will also allow the company to take legal action for any infringement.


    An infringement can be in the form of any unauthorised use indicating
    or suggesting that such goods originate in a geographical area other
    than their actual place of origin or when the use of another GI results
    in unfair competition, such as passing it off as a registered GI.


    Government officials, however, pointed out that while a GI is a public
    property belonging to producers of concerned goods, it cannot be made a
    subject matter of assignments, transmission, licensing or mortgages.

    • FYI, 'fbojeda' email is revealed on his/her Yahoo! profile.

    • Are you asking fbojeda to put out more rumors?
      Trying to get him to jail sooner and stay there longer?

    • FBOjeda: Thanks for your following very informative and helpful post.

      We would appreciate if you would please post any additional details on the logging and/or drilling operational status of the KG #17 that you may have heard in addition to the following.

      If you prefer to privately e-mail it to me, I will provide you with my e-mail address.

      Thanks!

      << From rumors I have it that they logged the well this weekend and saw 400 meters of very high potential pay zone. They are drilling 30 meters more to see what is below but this is a keeper and will bring in some revenue. >>

    • <<Good news, FBojeda! Another 30 meters might be a day or two at these depths. Can't remember if the 800m of pay zone on KG#8 was "very high potential", or just plain vanilla pay zone.>>

      Total BS on NOTHING again.

      "As of December 31, 2005 a venture in which we have a net 5% interest, has drilled and abandoned two wells, has tested and is evaluating a third well and is engaged in drilling a fourth well. As of December 31, 2005, we claim no reserves of hydrocarbons as a result of those drilling, testing and evaluation activities."

      Good news, FBojeda! Another 30 meters might be a day or two at these depths. Can't remember if the 800m of pay zone on KG#8 was "very high potential", or just plain vanilla pay zone.

    • Yah, I just added you to my rumor spreader list. You are right up there with other rumor spreaders. If I had the honor to talk to SEC or a judge, you post will be presented.

      I can understand Reliance wanting a GI for its petrol, diesel, and LPG, as it would want market differentiation for its products that it has started retailing through its own gas stations and other outlets, but I'm finding a bit of difficulty understanding why it would get a GI for its KG gas.

      This move could preclude the possibility of RIL sharing its pipeline from the KG basin with GGR/GSPC and ONGC. If so, then this would seem to be a move more against ONGC, more than GGR/GSPC, since GGR/GSPC's gas is of a much higher methane content, and, as I understand it, more valuable.

      Any other thoughts out there?
      (Besides the fact that we're seeing an inordinate amount of bashing this morning, evidence that certain shorts are getting very nervous.)

    • Still nothing to do with GGR.
