Oil India Ltd reported flat -1.15% fall in sales revenues for the March 2023 quarter on consolidated basis at Rs8,768 crore. Revenues were down sequentially by -17.1% on the back of weak crude price realizations. In terms of verticals, crude oil saw slightly lower sales as did refinery products on account of lower crude prices. However, for FY23 overall, the GRMs were sharply higher than FY22. Natural gas saw a surge in sales in the quarter on the back of more favourable pricing environment.

While operating profits of natural gas were up nearly 10-foold, refinery products operating profits were also lower on weak crude prices. Inventory efficiency losses were sharply higher in the quarter which impacted the operating performance of the company.
