Future Prospects :  Petronet LNG, As Importer of Natural Gas is placed in very right place. Procuring Natural Gas makes the company at risk of changing price of Natural Gas. Though it has Contract for acquiring Natural Gas but still there is always risk.

But Indian companies planned to increase the production of natural gas and Govt initiatives to give Gas supply, maybe it is piped or By cylinder, set to increase the importance of the company. Reduction of cost and Increased demand.

Though Financials are volatile but as the company is setup by State run Companies, risk of failure is low. The business is also diversified. It is not depending upon single terminal.

Like every other business, this also have cost, mostly fixed.

  1. Liquification of gas $1.1 per Million Cubic Feet – /+ $0.2
  2. Tanker and other shipping and operating costs $0.7 – $1 Million Cubic Feet
  3. Regasification $0.35 Million Cubic feet.

Even the company is outperforming Indices, but the Intrinsic value of the business is high.
