Don’t want to be in the limelight for the next few quarter – that’s the key takeaway from the meet

Refining climate indicated to be challenging, no indication on start of Jamnagar refinery – keeps earlier deadline of ahead of 2008 December

Petchem climate remains challenging and cautious – margins will remain under pressure due to higher feedstock prices

E&P capex likely to overshoot target due to cost pressure on E&P; Capex in Q1 at $ 1.7 bn, 80% was in E&P

Oil production likely to get delayed, KG gas production likely to start by September

Mgmt. indicated that the refinery will be commissioned in stages, i.e., CDU-wise and would involve a period of trial production

Mgmt. expressed confidence in its ability to sell gas as per gas utilization and pricing policy.

On the 80IB tax issue, the issue will likely be resolved in courts once it files its first tax returns.

The two refineries would require 10-12mmscmd to start with. The east-west pipeline is ready and currently being tested.
