PIL to Register FIR Against Mukesh Ambani, RIL

PIL to Register FIR Against Mukesh Ambani, RIL

November29, 2011

 

Honorable Chief Justice of India,

Supreme Court of India.

 

Petrobras Contracted 24 Rigs for $2b for 5 Years

Average Day Rate

Perobras 0.140m and RIL $0.509m

 

Sir,

Prayer - Please direct CBI to Register FIR and investigate Over Charging Day Rate at 0.114m and ONGC $0.140m. Full details are with CBI for two years but is waiting for directions from CBI to Order CBI to Register FIR against RIL & Muesh Ambani.

 

When average day rate per rig paid by

Petrobras was 0.114m,

ONGC $0.140m

but RIL Paid $0.509m clearly pointing to Mega Scam.

 

http://iadc.org/dcpi/dc-mayjun06/May06-brazil.pdf

The package deal included 5-year contracts and has a total of nearly US$ 2 billion. It is believed to be the largest deal of this kind for the offshore sector and it has certainly been financially beneficial for Brazil's national oil company. While some rigs are going for as high as US$ 405,000 per day, the highest rate Petrobras paid was US$ 254,000 per day. Indeed, only two of the rigs chartered by Petrobras — Noble's deepwater semis Paul Wolf and Dave Beard – surpassed US$ 200,000 per day, well below going dayrates elsewhere.

 

Of the 24 rigs secured by Petrobras, 17 are semis and 7 are drillships, with their water depth drilling capacity ranging from 600 m to 3,000 m, although only 6 have capacity beyond 2,000 m. Many contracts were simply rolled over, but there were new contracts too. The companies involved in the deal were recognizable international names such as Transocean, Pride, Noble and Diamond, as well as national companies such as Queiroz Galvão and Schahin Oil & Gas.

 

14 companies, including Petrobras, are active in the Santos Basin. Petrobras' concession spans more than 40,000 sq km and includes 10 exclusive exploratory blocks and 19 blocks held in partnership. Of that 19, 13 are operated by Petrobras. The remaining 13 companies hold 20 exploratory blocks spanning some 13,000 sq km.

 

"13 companies hold 20 exploratory blocks spanning some 13,000 sq km."

 

Brazil leased 13,000 sq.km to 13 companies but GOI allotted 25 huge blocks (270,000 sq.m) to RIL between 1999-2001.

 

Yet RIL hired 1 or 2 rigs paid four times (4X) the average day rate by Petrobras and 3.5 times (3.5X) than average day rate of ONGC. 

 

Important

 

RIL in a Press Release claimed KG D6 discovery holds 40 times more Natural Gas than ONGC but in spite of spending over $10b there is poor supply of Natural Gas – production loss due to Hoarding along with GSPC who backed down to let RIL monopolize Offshore – is $500b. This too be investigated separately.

 

Thank you,
