We would take this opportunity to thank Mr. Basharat Ahmed, our teacher for the course of Business Policy at the Quaid-i-Azam School of Management Science, Quaid-i-Azam University Islamabad, for his valuable support and encouragement which he has offered. His words of wisdom will always be remembered, and We are convinced that the knowledge of Business policy And Strategy that he has imparted to all of us would go a long way in making us good managers and help us all through our professional career.

This report cannot be solely attributed to our combined effort but it is indeed the joint effort of many friends and well wishers. There were times in the course of preparing this report when things were tough and the future seemed dark. It could not have been possible to write it, without the immense help of a few individuals to whom we would like to offer my gratitude.

In particular we would like to thank Mr. Abdual Raziq Khatak (Personnel Officer HR Policy Department), of OGDCL for his immense contribution towards this report. Without his corporation and the amount of time he gave us, this report would not have existed.

Thanks a lot! Mumtaz Ali Saeed Ahmed 4

Establishment of OGDC To revive exploration in the energy sector the Government of Pakistan signed a long-term loan Agreement on 04 March 1961 with the USSR. declined in the late fifties. 1.Chapter No: 1 Introduction 1. whereby Pakistan received 27 million Rubles to finance equipment and services of Soviet experts for exploration. With exploration activity at its lowest ebb several foreign exploration contracting companies terminated their operation and either reduced or relinquished land holdings in 1961. (PPL) and Pakistan Oilfields Ltd. exploration activity after having reached its peak in mid-1950s. Company History 1. these companies carried out extensive geological and geophysical surveys and drilled 47 exploratory wells. vested in a five-member Board of Directors appointed by the Government. (POL). the Corporation followed the Government instructions in matters of exploration and development.1. Prior to OGDCL Prior to OGDCL's emergence. The Corporation was charged with responsibility to undertake a well thought out and systematic exploratory program and to plan and promote Pakistan's oil and gas prospects. PPL discovered a giant gas field at Sui in Balochistan. exploration activities in the country were carried out by Pakistan Petroleum Ltd. The day to day management was however. Private Companies whose main objective was to earn profit were not interested in developing the gas discoveries especially when infrastructure and demand for gas was non-existent. a few small gas fields were discovered. Pursuant to the Agreement. OGDC was created under an Ordinance dated 20th September 1961. This discovery generated immense interest in exploration and five major foreign oil companies entered into concession agreements with the Government. As a result. As an instrument of policy in the oil and gas sector. During the 1950s. In the initial stages 8 . In 1952.2. Despite these gas discoveries.

due to major oil and gas discoveries in the eighties. Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Asian Development Bank provided the impetus through assistance for major development projects in the form of loans and grants. The financial year 198990. OGDC's concerted efforts were very successful as they resulted in a number of major oil and gas discoveries between 1968 and 1982. This resulted in discovery of a number of oil and gas fields in the Eighties. 1. Nandpur and Panjpir gas fields which are commercial discoveries that testify to the professional capabilities of the Corporation. Toot oil field was discovered in 1968 which paved the way for further exploratory work in the North. The obvious initial target during the first year of self-financing was to generate sufficient resources to maintain the momentum of exploration and development at a pace envisaged in the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) as well as to meet its debt servicing obligations. the Company reformed the strategy for updating its equipment base and undertook a very aggressive work programme. the Government in July 1989. off-loaded the Company from the Federal Budget and allowed it to manage its activities with self generated funds. Lashari. The first 10 to 15 years were devoted to development of manpower and building of infrastructure to undertake much larger exploration program. Transition to a self financing entity Noting the Company's success. Uch.4.3.

In the years to date OMV (Pakistan) has established itself as the largest international gas producer in Pakistan with an operated volume of more than 110. It came about by the end of 1993. OMV is. consisting of OMV Pakistan as the Operator. In 2005. This represents about 16% of the total gas produced in Pakistan. OMV is pursuing new projects in other parts of Pakistan. also actively expanding its exploration operations.e. To further meet raw gas requirements development drilling was continued successfully for both fields. OMV remained quite aggressive on new developments and Kadanwari plant gas processing capacity was enhanced to 232 MMscfd while Sawan plant capacity has been enhanced to 400 MMscfd. from the field named Sawan. In a record nineteen months from the ground-breaking ceremony in January 2002 of the Sawan Gas Plant.000 barrels of oil equivalent per day from Kadanwari-Miano and Sawan fields. just three years after OMV came to Pakistan. The second major breakthrough came five years later i. again in the same area of Sindh. Hardy Oil & Gas (now ENI group).The company was incepted as part of a Joint Venture. the exploration group has acquired extensive seismic data. 18 . The first significant achievement was the discovery of the Miano gas reservoir in the Thar Desert of Sindh province. OMV was able to sell its raw gas by July 2003. in 1998. Parallel to the Sawan development OMV also took over the operator-ship of the Kadanwari Gas Processing Plant on 1stJanuary 2003 from Lasmo. and Oil & Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL). including a mega-3D seismic survey covering more than 1000 sq.Km area in and around our Gambat and Latif blocks. currently ENI.

JCR-VIS Credit Rating Company Limited (JCR-VIS) has reaffirmed the entity ratings of Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) at ‘AAA/A-1+’ (Triple A/A One Plus).2. The Management of the Company also understands its role and responsibilities as leading national E&P Company with largest oil and gas reserves. Business Risks and Challenges Being an exploration and production company. Internal Audit function also exists in the Company serving as an effective appraisal of internal controls which are meant to have methods and measures in place to safe guard the assets. check the accuracy and reliability of its accounting data. 6. and encourage adherence to prescribed managerial policies. there has been no gearing on books. The strong financial profile of the company can be established from the fact that despite significant capital expenditure requirement in the E&P sector. effective and comply with applicable laws and regulations and professional best practices.1. OGDCL is exposed to operational and non operational risks associated with E&P business which may unfavourably affect its operations and financial performance. The Management and the Board of Directors are well aware of their responsibilities in this regard and ensue that an appropriate system exists in the Company for the identification and management of the business risks. Credit Rating OGDCL has shown sustainable growth in business volume over the years. 27 . Audit Committee of the Board in accordance with its terms of reference also ascertain that the internal control system including financial & operational controls and accounting system are adequate. Outlook on the medium to longterm rating is ‘Stable’.

3. Exploration and Drilling Risks The different sedimentary basins in Pakistan represent very complex tectonics and deformation styles. To maintain a good success ratio is also a vital element which can only be achieved with efficient professional 28 . Crude Oil Price Crude oil pricing in Pakistan is based on a basket of Arabian crude adjusted for yield differential and freight adjustment. Change in international oil prices is largely uncontrollable and OGDCL is vulnerable to increase/decrease in such prices. However.Management is committed to cope with the given challenges within its ambit of controls with its strong core of trained and experienced professionals. the gas sales which amount around 50% of Company’s revenue are less prone to this risk.2.2. 6. Exchange Rate Risk Rs/US$ parity decline has a positive impact on OGDCL’s earnings as crude revenue is tied to US$ based pricing mechanism based on international crude prices with suitable yield differential and number of gas fields have wellhead pricing in US$ terms.1. 6. acquisition of geological and geophysical data. sound equipment base and sound financial position. The in-depth knowledge of petroleum systems present in these basins is imperative. Key operational and non-operational risks which can influence the operations of the Company are as follows: 6.2. In addition. delineation of drillable prospects and their drilling are all important aspects in hydrocarbon exploration.2. gas prices of certain fields are capped at fixed crude oil / HSFO prices and are affected only in case the international crude oil price falls below the capped price. Decline in prices of crude oil have a negative impact on the Company’s earning performance. The selection of potential exploration blocks. Rs/US$ parity decline has a negative impact on the Company’s earnings since most of the material including drilling material. plant & equipment used in oil and gas industry are imported to meet operational requirements.

As easy-to-drill structures are vanishing. The Company is also utilizing experienced professionals and latest technologies in selection of acreage. fire and other safety hazards. interpretation of seismic data and selection of exploratory well site. As the Company is committed to adhere to the best Health. Exploration risks include selection of incorrect exploration acreage. lateral wells and drilling in complex geological settings. Legislation OGDCL’s revenues are subject to change in Petroleum Policies. Risk of un-successful drilling has an adverse affect on Company’s earnings and growth. heavy rains. Changes in legislation. These risks are addressed by the Management while making the investment decisions. regulations. These generally offer incentives to local & foreign E&P companies to increase exploration efforts. Petroleum Policy in effect at the time of a particular discovery determines the underlying revenues from such field.5.teams and systematic working. inaccuracies in acquisition. Environmental Risks OGDCL is vulnerable to environmental changes including earth quakes. taxation. Safety and Environment (HSE) practices.2. royalty and pricing mechanism may affect the Company’s operational and financial performance. floods etc. the drilling operations are also facing many challenges such as deep wells.2. There is always a risk of success / failure in drilling exploratory wells. acquisition and processing of seismic data etc.4. processing. The Company is also exposed to variety of hazards during the drilling process including well blow out. that may materially impact production at various fields resulting into adverse impact on company’ revenues and profitability. 6. fishing. the compliance 29 . expertise in reservoir engineering is in place to manage pertinent risks. The Management is well aware of these risks and is taking into consideration these facts while planning and executing the exploration and drilling targets. Though this risk is reduced in case of development fields. which are usually promulgated after every five years. planning and executing Company’s exploration and development plans. 6.

to changes in environmental regulations relating to HSE could result into higher cost to the Company. Profitability Over the years. So seems there is increase in the profitability position of the company rather then decrease. 6.3. in FY 2009 it was Rs 55. It follows the trend of increasing profitability since last financial years as in FY 2008 the profitability was Rs and FY 2010 it is Rs 59. the OGDCL’s main source of funding has been funds generated by itself through its production of oil and gas products. If we put glance over the profitability of the OGDCL from its financial statements then we will come to know that the Company possesses strong profitability position. 30 .

Petroleum policy of oil and gas industry in Pakistan is designed with a focus on promoting private sector investment in oil and gas sector. OMV has also pointed out medium term growth potential in Pakistan’s reserves.5 Billion.Chapter No: 7 Industry analysis 7. Pakistan oil and gas industry is going through a process of transition as it is experiencing a new wave of privatization. 01 is a major achievement of this sector.1. The demand for natural gas is exceeding supply due to increased usage in the domestic. Pakistan Oil and Gas Industry Pakistan’s produces about 60. Instance of gas and condensate discovery in oil and gas development limited company (OGDCL) in Exploratory Pakhro WELL No. The balance amount is imported at a staggering cost of US$2. Reports of oil and gas industry of Pakistan revels this Country’s current average daily oil and production is about 3800 net barrels and natural gas of 73 net million 31 .
