Shares in India's state-run producer Oil & Natural Gas Corp rose as much as 4.1 per cent in early trade on Monday after the company reported a higher-than-expected jump in quarterly profit over the weekend.
The company benefited from higher crude oil prices and foreign exchange fluctuations and reported net profit of 60.8 billion rupees ($1.1 billion) for its fiscal first quarter ended June, up from 41.0 billion rupees a year earlier.
ONGC Chairman Sudhir Vasudeva also said the producer has made a fresh discovery at the D1 offshore field off India's western coast, which could boost in- place reserves at the field to an estimated 140 million tonnes of oil-equivalent from 82 million tonnes now.
