Why ONGC share price is falling

In news from the energy sector, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) share price fell 1.3% to Rs 157 on 23 June 2023 after Brent crude declined by US $ 4 (about Rs 328.1) overnight.

Upstream companies like ONGC, involved in the exploration and production of oil, stand to lose when oil prices tumble. This is because oil prices have a direct impact on the margins and profitability of such oil and gas companies.

On 22 June, ONGC successfully linked the panna process platform with a subsea pipeline, a part of ONGC's Bassein & Satellite (B&S) Asset.

The linkage will help the public sector undertaking (PSU) save US $ 43,000 (about US $ 3.5 m) cost per day, previously incurred while transporting crude oil through ships.

The panna segment includes the laying of two segments of 37.5 km of submarine pipeline and the installation of three main oil line pumps (MOL) and three booster pumps.

ONGC share price was under pressure even before today. Last month ONGC share price fell by 5.8%.
