    China imposed a 5 per cent tariff on US crude oil shipments from September 1.

    Soon after taking over the field last month, ONGC changed the shipper to state-owned Shipping Corporation Ltd, resulting in saving of about USD 5,000 per day, they said adding the saving totals to Rs 1 crore-plus.

    The Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) is considering a gas transmission tariff reform that would allow the tariff to be fixed separately for each entry and exit point of the pipeline.
