Oil & Gas Sector Q4 Earnings Preview - Unraveling The Numbers Maze: Nirmal Bang

These reports offer BloombergQuint’s subscribers an opportunity to expand their understanding of companies, sectors and the economy.

Nirmal Bang Report

We expect our oil and gas universe (barring GAIL India Ltd., Gujarat State Petronet Ltd.) to report healthy earnings in Q4 FY21, although the growth will be a bit mixed.

Among the oil marketing companies, we see robust adjusted profit after tax growth of 124% YoY for Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd.

For Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd., the Q4 FY21 profit after tax compares with a loss (excluding exceptional item) in Q4 FY20.

All the three OMCs will see inventory gains boosting reported gross refining margins YoY and tax payout versus tax write-backs YoY.

But, core GRMs will be down due to lower spreads even as these have improved QoQ.
