ONGC posts 26% rise in Q3


⛽️ The country's biggest oil and gas producer, ONGC, announced a 26% YoY rise in its net profit for the third quarter of the fiscal year, owing to increased crude oil and natural gas prices. ONGC's net profit for Q3 2021 was ₹11,045 crore, up from ₹8,773 crore in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year. This jump in profits was largely due to the company's improved realization for crude oil and natural gas, which rose by 39.3% and 18.4%, respectively. ONGC also announced that it will pay a dividend of ₹4 per share, marking a payout of ₹6,536 crore to its shareholders.

While ONGC's performance was impressive, the company's stock price fell by 2.5% in response to the announcement, as investors were reportedly hoping for an even higher dividend payout. The company is also facing increased competition from private players in the oil and gas sector, as well as pressure to modernize and streamline its operations.

As always, we'll keep a close eye on how this news affects ONGC and the broader Indian oil and gas sector. Stay tuned for more updates!
