印度液化天然气公司利润下降 销量下滑

原标题:印度液化天然气公司利润下降 销量下滑

    中国石化新闻网讯 据世界天然气网站8月18日消息 印度最大的液化天然气进口商印度液化天然气公司报告称,由于Covid-19导致该国需求下降,净利润下降。

    2020-21财年第一季度的税后净利润为52亿卢比(6950万美元),而去年的净利润为56亿卢比。

    第二季度收入同比下降了43%,至495亿卢比(6.63亿美元),原因是封锁导致再气化量下降。

    印度液化天然气公司表示,该公司的终端在这一时期再气化量为190万亿百万英热单位,而上一季度和去年同期分别为219 和226 万亿百万英热单位。

    该公司1750万吨/年的达赫终端在本季度实现了181万亿百万英热单位的再气化量,而去年为217 万亿百万英热单位。

    这家液化天然气进口商本月早些时候透露,对其供应商卡塔尔和埃克森美孚的9批长期货物援引了不可抗力。

    印度从3月最后一周开始在全国范围内实施封锁,以阻止冠状病毒的传播。

    这影响到许多工业、炼油厂和发电厂,导致达赫终端的需求减少。

    印度液化天然气公司称,在Covid-19之前,达赫的运营能力约为92%,而在4月份,利用率降至60%以下。

    该公司未充分利用的500万吨/年高知液化天然气终端的利用率也从2月的约20%下降到5月的12.22%。

    然而,印度液化天然气公司表示,继6月下旬放松封锁措施后,随着达赫终端满负荷运转,需求逐渐恢复。

    Petronet LNG profit down on lower volumes

    India’s biggest LNG importer Petronet reported a drop in net profit due to lower demand in the country caused by the Covid-19 lockdown.

    Net profit after tax stood at 5.2 billion rupees ($69.5 million) in the first quarter of the 2020-21 fiscal, compared to 5.6 billion rupees last year.

    Revenues dropped 43 percent year-on-year to 49.5 billion rupees ($663 million) in the April-June quarter as regasified volumes declined due to the mentioned lockdown.

    Petronet said its terminals regasified 190 trillion British thermal units in the period, compared to 219 TBTU in the previous quarter and 226 TBTU in the same quarter last year.

    The company’s 17.5 mtpa Dahej terminal regasified 181 TBTUs during the quarter, compared to 217 TBTU last year.

    To remind, the LNG importer revealed earlier this month it invoked a force majeure for nine long-term cargoes with its suppliers Qatargas and ExxonMobil.

    India imposed a nationwide lockdown from the last week of March to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

    This affected many industries, refineries and power plants resulting in a demand reduction at the Dahej terminal, it said.

    Before Covid-19, Dahej operated at about 92 percent of capacity while in April the utilization fell below 60 percent, Petronet said.

    The company’s underused 5 mtpa Kochi LNG terminal has also seen a drop in utilization from about 20 percent in February to 12.22 percent in May.

    However, following the relaxation of the lockdown measures in the second half of June, the demand has seen gradual recovery with the Dahej terminal operating at its full capacity, Petronet said.
