Company sees some decline in commercial, CNG and industrial demand

Adani Total Gas Limited (ATGL) said on Tuesday that the latest wave of Covid-19 pandemic in the country will have a temporary impact on the company’s gas sales volumes, while it sees normalcy to return as soon as the pandemic surge settles.

Addressing a media analyst concall after the company’s quarterly and annual financial results, company’s CEO, Suresh Mangalani, said gas demand was impacted last year because there was a nationwide lockdown early last year. “This time, a certain section of the country is under lockdown. Some of the others have restricted lockdown. We are definitely seeing some decline. But not as much as last time that we saw,” Mangalani said.

“There is some decline naturally on commercial, CNG and industrial volumes. We do see some decline in gas demand but comparatively much less as compared to last year,” he said, adding that the bounce-back in demand is expected after the latest Covid wave starts declining.
