Action Plan for Energy Security 4 Jan 08

Action Plan for Energy Security 4 Jan 08

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2 |Likes:
Important sections of government and media in India have been negligent about the
impact of alarming rise in crude oil prices. They have ignored vital evidence that Indian oil
companies’ ability to ensure sustainable supply is under severe pressure amidst
burdening subsidies, rising global demand, depleting supplies and a host of other factors,
in spite its serious implications for the country’s security and sustenance.
ii. They have either been misled by “planted” reports by vested interests in the oil and
dependent sectors or are merely guilty of “wishful thinking” about oil prices and available
reserves, against the weight of evidence and environmental constraints, even while
holding high positions of responsibility.
iii. Based on its in-depth research into oil prices and supply, TEN Systems has made
persistent efforts over the past 18 months to inform the Petroleum Ministry on this issue
and has offered the FuelSaver proposal as a “path breaking” win-win solution that will
mitigate the government’s genuine concern to protect the common man from fuel price
rise impact and attendant concerns that it will fuel inflation and curb economic growth
without bleeding the oil companies – crippling their ability to meet our fuel demand
sustainably, and in an ironical twist, bleeding the common man, that they seek to protect
in the first place.

As of date, crude oil prices have nearly doubled to about USD 100 per barrel in the pastone year and are expected to stay up on the average. “The Indian crude basket touchedan all time high of $ 92.29 a barrel on Wednesday. The basket averaged $ 87.92 a barrelin December ‘o7.” (1)

“The OMCs – Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation and HindustanPetroleum Corporation – are expected to lose Rs. 69,753 crore on sale of petrol, diesel,domestic LPG and PDS kerosene this fiscal. ONGC’s subsidy payout in the currentfinancial year (2007-08) is expected to be Rs. 17,000 crore.” (2)

The Petroleum Minister last week made a statement - “we need to tighten our belts andcurb consumption of oil.” (2)

The situation has indeed reached a state of
Energy Emergency
that urgently awaits aformal declaration by the Petroleum Minister or the Prime Minister. The following ActionPlan proposed by us must be valued in the light of these “extraordinary circumstances”.

Mr. George Paul, Marketing Head, BPCL
 2. PCRA calls for a 1-day high-level meeting inviting decision makers and experts – Petroleum ministry, Oil cos. Finance ministry, PMO, Planning Commission, IndustryAssociation, Consultancy firms with dedicated Energy Practice etc..
a. The agenda for the meeting will be as follows:i.
Session I:
To further discuss the merits of the FuelSaver proposal, incorporatefeedback and suggestions and to develop an in-principle agreement on the rolesand responsibilities.ii.
Session II:
To select a FuelSaver Taskforce from public and private players andwhat powers and resources are necessary for the taskforce to implement theFuelSaver System.b. The meeting can be called on
Friday January 11, 2008
or at the earliest possible date.
 3. The Petroleum Ministry in concert with key stakeholders calls a Press Conference toannounce a launch date of the FuelSaver program.4. As the first step towards implementation, all petrol pumps around the country as well asLPG and Kerosene outlets/PDS maintain a register where any consumer can enter theirname, vehicle license number (as applicable), contact details, time and date and applyfor the FuelSaver Card.5. They receive a detailed application form along with a dummy FuelSaver Card from theFuelSaver. Consumers retain the dummy card and need to mention the Consumer ID onthe card in all their fuel transactions – including LPG and Kerosene – and avail of thebenefits. This exercise can be completed in 30-45 days time. The oil companies will befree from any government regulation to set prices, after 45 days.6. The taskforce presents its case for the required policy changes to the government andbinding commitments to oil cos. to provide clean high quality fuel and to transition toalternative fuel systems in the post-oil scenario. Refer Annexure II – Proposed PolicyChanges7. The taskforce prepares the Terms of Reference for the FuelSaver Systemimplementation as referred to in the enclosed FuelSaver Prototype presentation.8. The taskforce calls for RFPs from individual companies/consortium of companies fordifferent modules or as a turnkey implementation using international best practices andnorms. According to our assessment, the FuelSaver System can be implementednationwide in less than 6 months.
