During the quarter under review, the company’s net realisation on crude was seen $49.01 a barrel, as against $61.93 a barrel a year ago.

Shares of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) slipped as much as 3.93 per cent to Rs 78.20 apiece on the BSE on Wednesday, a day after the state-run oil and gas company posted a pre-tax loss of Rs 10,529 crore in the fourth quarter of the financial year 2019-20 (Q4FY20). The loss was due to a drop in crude oil prices, the impact of the Covid-19-induced lockdown, and exchange losses. It was ONGC’s first-ever quarterly loss.
