When was New Exploration Licensing Policy (NELP) launched?

Government of India approved the New Exploration & Licensing Policy (NELP) in1997 and it became effective in February, 1999 Since then licenses for exploration are being awarded only through a competitive bidding system and National Oil Companies (NOCs) are required to compete on an equal footing with Indian and foreign companies to secure Petroleum Exploration Licences (PELs). Seven rounds of bids have so far been invited under NELP, in which, 206 exploration blocks have been awarded. In addition, 28 exploration blocks were signed prior to NELP. Under NELP, 68 oil and gas discoveries have already been made in Cambay onland, North East Coast and Krishna-Godavari deepwater areas, for which, development plans by the operators, viz., Cairn, RIL and Niko are in progress. First crude oil production from deepwater in KG basin has commenced at the rate of 10,000 barrels of oil per day w.e.f l7th September 2008. Natural gas production from KG basin is likely to commence in 2009. With Exploration and development efforts made under NELP, Natural Gas production in the country is likely to be doubled from the present level of gas production of about 90 million standard cubic metres per day (MSCMD) by end of l1th Five Year Plan.

What are the main terms and conditions of NELP?
The main features of NELP are as under: i) ii) iii) No mandatory state participation through ONGC/OIL or any carried interest of the Government. Blocks to be awarded through open international competitive bidding. ONGC and OIL to compete for obtaining the petroleum exploration licenses on a competitive basis instead of the existing system of granting them PELs on nomination basis. ONGC and OIL to get the same fiscal and contract terms as private companies. Freedom to the contractors for marketing of crude oil and gas in the domestic market. Royalty at the rate of 12.5% for the onland areas and 10% for offshore areas. Half of the royalty from the offshore area to be credited to a hydrocarbon development fund to promote and fund exploration related activities, such as acquisition of geological data on poorly explored basins, promotion of investment opportunities in the upstream sector, institution building etc. Royalty to be charged at half the prevailing rate for deep water areas beyond 400 m bathymetry for the first 7 years after commencement of commercial production. Cess to be exempted for production from blocks offered under NELP.

Seven years tax holiday from the date of commencement of commercial production. Contribution made to Site Restoration Fund Scheme is deductible in the year of contribution as against in the year of site restoration as per the earlier the provisions of the Income-tax Act.
