This comes after international energy prices surged from late 2021 and spiked after Russia invaded Ukraine in February. ONGC gets international prices for crude oil it produces and so it benefited from the surge in energy prices. ONGC gets international rates as the downstream fuel retailers too price petrol, diesel and other petroleum products at global rates.
After including those earned by its subsidiaries like HPCL and ONGC Videsh Ltd, Consolidated net profit, soared to ₹12,061.44 crore in March quarter and ₹49,294.06 crore in the full fiscal 2021-22. This compared to ₹10,963.04 crore in January-March 2021 and ₹21,360.25 crore in 2020-21.
