After exit, GSPC re-enters KG basin TNN | May 2, 2017, 04.17 AM IST Printed from GANDHINAGAR: After palming off its 80% stake in the Krishna-Godavari Basin gas block to ONGC, for a whopping Rs 8,100 crore, Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation Ltd (GSPC) is now set to re-enter it, by acquiring the 10% stake in the basin of its JV partner, Geo-Global Resources (GGR). The stake transfer will involve only the GGR's call money of roughly Rs 500 crore. GGR and Jubilant Offshore Drilling Pvt Ltd (JODPL) each each hold a 10% participating interest in the KG basin block. The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India had earlier come down heavily on the Gujarat government, the promoter of GSPC, for the massive outstanding sums of GGR and JODPL. The CAG observed that on March 31, 2015, a huge outstanding amount of Rs 1,734 crore was against GGR. In May 2016, Gujarat energy minister Saurabh Patel had given an assurance that once the company began commercial production, the pending recovery of Rs 2,319.43 crore from its JV partners would be made. Strangely, GSPC has now decided to accept GGR's proposal for a write off of its 10% share in the KG basin operation . For GSPC, which has been supporting GGR in KG basin block, this deal comes at zero cost. This is because GGR's outstanding amount will form part of the sale. The process will take three months, sources said. Chief secretary J N Singh, who is also the chairman and MD of GSPC, told TOI ," GGR had approached us to surrender its 10% share in the KG basin operation. The government has, in-principle, agreed to accept the proposal as it was decided when the contract was signed with GGR. We have sought permission from the ministry of petroleum of the government of India too. Our new partner, ONGC, has also suggested that we accept GGR's proposal." The Public Enterprise Committee (PEC) of the state assembly had noted that, "GSPC took an 'unacceptable risk' in the gas exploration at KG basin. The PEC said that against an estimated expenditure of $109.70 million, GSPC spent $1,404.86 million, 12.81 times what was estimated while placing bids, for three phases of gas exploration.
GSPC to re-enter KG basin, acquire Geo-Global’s stake NEW DELHI/ AHMEDABAD, APRIL 30: After a much debated exit from its Krishna-Godavari Basin gas block, Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation Ltd (GSPC) is set to re-enter it by acquiring Geo-Global Resources’ 10 per cent stake.
In December last year, GSPC, operator of KG-OSN-2001/3, had sold its 80 per cent stake for about $1.2 billion (₹8,100 crore) to public sector giant ONGC. The other two partners in the block were Geo-Global Resources and Jubilant Offshore Drilling Pvt Ltd holding 10 per cent participating interest each.
The asset has always been seen as one close to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s heart, as the discovery was announced by him during his stint as the Gujarat Chief Minister.
Allegations were also made on inflated gas reserves projections made by the company then.
Multiple sources associated with the developments told BusinessLine that a memorandum of understanding has been worked out between Geo-Global and GSPC and the nuances are being worked out for the transfer.
Asked why did GSPC exit the block, when it had to re-enter, sources in the know said, “parallel discussions with the minority partner was going, but was not concluded. GSPC always wanted to be part of the asset.”
On the cost of transaction, officials said that GSPC has been hand-holding Geo-Global in the project, and therefore, the deal will be technically at zero cost, as the outstandings that Geo-Global had will form part of the sell out.
Await DGH nod Once GSPC and Geo-Global conclude the transfer, they will need to approach the Directorate General of Hydrocarbons for regulatory approvals.
Subsequent to the DGH nod, the production sharing contract will need to be re-inked with ONGC and Jubilant.
“The entire process need not take more than three months,” an official said.
The Comptroller & Auditor General of India in March last year had pulled up the State government, promoter of GSPC, for heavy outstanding against — Geo-Global and Jubilant.
The CAG had observed that outstanding amount as on March 31, 2015, stood at ₹ 1,734.60 against Geo-Global Resources alone. In May 2016, the then Gujarat Energy Minister Saurabh Patel had clarified that once the company begins commercial production, the pending recovery of ₹2,319.43 crore from the JV partners will be made.
ONGC, which has acquired the majority stake from GSPC, was clear that it will not be taking the later’s debt and that the deal valuation remained the same.
Meanwhile, the DGH expects ONGC, now the operator of the block, to work on the already approved field development plan.

ONGC's KG Basin ambitions-II: Development plan for ultra deepwater prospects by early 2018
Apr 05: What are ONGC's integration plans for the KG-OSN-2001/3 field?
The focus is now on getting the field to the commercial productions stage
The idea seems to create an HPHT corridor in the KG Basin
The DDW field will emerge as pivot to developing nearby NPHT discoveries in Yanam and Godavari PML areas of ONGC.
ONGC is now unveiling a massive fast track development plan to club all of this with the gas discoveries in KG-DWN-98/2 and existing nomination blocks
Somehow though the plan specifically talks of "synergy of strategies" among government owned companies, leaving out the privately own RIL-BP combine from such an alliance, even though the latter has a massive unutilized infrastructure in the area
One of the major Deen dayal finds, kg-21, was drilled outside of the well head infrastructure put in place for neighboring holes ... increasing costs to operate
Someone took out the 40k at oo78 today -- so, doesn't look like any sitting offers below oo95 are left ... we might finally get above 1 again soon
Cambay block-I: GSPC reneges on cash calls
Apr 03: Oilex, the JV partner with GSPC, is running into a bit of a spot as the latter is unable to honour cash calls on account of financial problems.
The two are partners in the Cambay and Bhandut projects, where Oilex feels there still a lot of reserves leftl to be tapped
It is learnt that Oilex is now preparing ground for acquiring GSPC's stake or else to go the other extreme, which is sell out and leave
It is also possible for Oilex to do a part sale
There is already an offer to buy Oilex's stake in Bhandut.
Cambay block-II: Oilex looking for a deal
Apr 03: Oilex claims it is stilling on a goldmine in the Cambay block.
The block is spread over 40,000 acres.
It says that it has nearly 1 tcf of fully recoverable reserves and around 4.4 tcf of Gas in Place
What is more, it is well connected to the national pipeline network
