Conoco's average gas price from its Lower 48 operations more than doubled to $4.56/mcf from the fourth quarter. Diamondback, which operates in the heart of Texas's biggest shale field, saw average gas prices jump more than 21 times to $3.05/mcf from a year earlier. The combined company produced 1.32 Bcfg in the period, more than double Conoco's in the previous quarter, which helped offset the financial impact of lost oil production from the freeze.
India's flagship oil and gas producer ONGC on Wednesday said it is seeking foreign partners for yet-to-be-developed fields in lesser prospective areas but is shackled by uneconomic gas prices and tax structure.

With a decline in India's crude oil production and natural gas output in FY20-21, the petroleum ministry has made its third attempt to get Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) to privatize its oil and gas fields along with other infrastructures to raise production. The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, on April 1, wrote to India’s largest producer of oil and natural gas asking it to sell its stake in oil fields to private firms and get foreign partners in KG basin gas fields. The letter also sought to monetize existing infrastructure and hive off drilling and other services into a separate firm to increase production.
Supportive net zero policies, a steep decline in production costs from electrolysis as well as a broad push towards renewables will pave the way for the widespread adoption of green hydrogen. A series of reports from S&P Global Ratings explores the potential of clean hydrogen to drive decarbonisation across the economy. They found that cost continues to present a major setback to the wider spread adoption of hydrogen.
