Future Prospects : Though it is Downstream Company, it holds stake in some oil fields. Like in Mozambique. Govt of India relaxes Subsidies on Fuel and gas. Company is also going through capital Expenditure which is helping it to increase its capacity. Though price of crude is increasing and as a result It may affect the company in short term but as a owner of oil field, it is expected to help them also. The time line given by company makes it clear that till end 2018 there will be no output from offshore asset. But right now also it is good for long term investor if planning to sell after 2018.

Disclosure : The stock is part of my long term portfolio, bought in 2015. No planning to sell.
