Like with PRGRB, sources in the Canadian super fund Brookfield, whose India Infrastructure Fund last month took over ownership of the East West Pipeline Ltd (EWPL) told this website that they had also heard news reports of alleged wrongdoing relating to the costing of the pipeline but had no comments to offer.
8The pipeline deal was announced by Reliance Industries Ltd on March 14, 2019, two days after the PNGRB had raised the pipeline tariff by 37% from Rs 52.23/mmbtu to Rs 71.66/mmbtu. 
8The pipeline was acquired for a sum of Rs 13,000 crore but only on an agreement with RIL that the reserve capacity will be 38 mmscmd instead of the sanctioned 58 mmscmd Any unutilized capacity payment by RIL will be the difference between Rs. 500 crore a quarter and actual revenue earned by the pipeline.
8RIL will continue to be entitled to transport gas, either by itself or of any customers, free of cost against any outstanding unutilized capacity payments
8If charges of over invoicing, vehemently denied by RIL and its promoters, are established and the PNGRB were to reduce the cost of the pipeline proportionately, it will severely impact the IRR on the investment made by the Canadian fund.

  Details
The PNGRB while arriving at a 37% hike in tariff for the East West Pipeline last month had assumed a capex of Rs 16,307 for the East West Pipeline after adjusting downwards the capex claim of Rs 17,240 crore by the owners of the pipeline.
8The tariff was reviewed by appointing the services of an "internationally reputed consultant appointed through bidding". The consultant however was not named.
8If indeed the Dutch authorities were correct that the pipeline may have been gold plated to the extent of $1.1 billion, and they are far from fully establishing it yet, then theoretically the capex could go down by more than Rs 7000 crore. This, if taken cognizance by the PNGRB, will then have a severely negative impact on the tariff rate of the pipeline.
8"Just to be able to avoid allegations of overlooking gold plating, the PNGRB will have to strengthen its internal ability to determine the exact cost of all pipelines under its ambit in ways other than going entirely by what a consultant has to say. Also how the capex estimate is arrived at should be made transparent and public," a big gas user in the fertilizer sector told our sister publication, www.indianfertilizer.com. "Eventually, as a gas buyer, I have to pay for the higher cost, if any," he added.

Well placed PNGRB sources told this website that they have been monitoring news reports of alleged gold plating of the pipeline cost of Reliance Gas Transportation Infrastructure Ltd's East West Pipeline Ltd (EWPL). Dutch investigators have claimed that they have arrested three former employees of a local company which was involved in the construction of the pipeline for over-invoicing the cost of materials to the extent of an estimated $1.1 billion. The money was reportedly funneled back through a web of intricate transactions to a promoter group of Reliance Industries Ltd.
8It is to be noted however that both RIL and the promoter group have vehemently denied the allegations of the Dutch investigators.
8"If it is clearly established that there has been gold plating, PNGRB always reserves the right to review. In fact, we had put in a caveat in the tariff order regarding the pipeline last month that the tariff was decided based on the information given by the company and PNGRB intends to verify the data through its internal team or through an external agency and, accordingly, the tariff can be subjected to revision." PNGRB sources told this website.

Biofuels are an essential renewable energy resource, with 40% (90 exajoules) of renewable energy resources projected to come from biofuel sources by 2050.
8In order to meet these projected energetic demands, biofuel production must be increased from the current annual biofuel yield of 50 exajoules. Sustainable intensification of pastureland, or the increase of livestock yield in kilogram's per hectare, is a key approach to making more land available for these bioenergy crops, like high-yielding grasses and short-rotation coppice wood, without incurring the carbon debt associated with conversion of farmland from forest.
8However, pastureland intensification is often criticized as a potential threat to pastureland biodiversity – there are cases of unsustainable intensification of pastureland leading to ecological degradation.
8So how does one approach sustainable intensification of pastureland that have had a neutral or positive effect on biodiversity of the affected areas?

Thus, while the capitalisation level of PFC was characterised by comfortable Tier I capital of 15.95% and CRAR of 18.95% as of December 31, 2018, the cushion will reduce with Tier I capital likely to fall to about 11.5% as of March 31, 2019. However, it will remain above the regulatory threshold of 10%. Details
