The Indian refining industry comprises 22 refineries, (17 public sector, 3 private sector and 2 are JVs between PSU and private players). Domestic refining capacity has almost doubled in the last 10 years with almost 50% of expansion coming in the last 5 years. Currently, India has a refining capacity of ~215.1 mmtpa of which PSU (including JV) constitutes 135.1 mmtpa (63% capacity) and private sector constitutes the rest. Demand for petroleum products in the country is primarily driven by the transportation sector. India is expected to remain a net exporter of petroleum products due to huge refining capacity. Under-recoveries are the difference between the trade-parity cost of refined product paid by OMCs and their realised sale price. Under-recoveries have escalated sharply in recent years to Rs1,610bn in FY13 (Rs400bn in FY06), its highest ever, due to rise in Brent oil prices from an average of US$58/bbl in FY06 to an average of US$110/bbl in FY13. The mounting burden of under-recoveries has seriously affected the operational functioning and financial health of OMCs; shrinking their liquidity position and has significantly impaired corporate flexibility.
