According to company sources close to development, the oversupply of gas and the drop in consumption of gases in India due to Covid, has given rise to concern over prices of gas. Per se, we are not terminating any of the contracts because we will consume them later when the new fertilizer plants will come up in places like Durgapur and Gorakhpur.

We expect to an increase of 11 12 mmscmd of gas supplies once all the five Fertiliser plants come up by December 2021, sources said.The company is also taking up the matter with suppliers to reschedule, as well as postpone some of the cargoes to reduce their losses.
