Company background

India's largest publicly controlled company, Oil and Natural Gas Corp. is more than two-thirds owned by the Indian government. Wholly owned subsidiary ONGC Videsh is the country's largest international oil and gas exploration and production company and has projects in 16 countries.

The foundations of the company were laid in 1955 under India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, with the government treating oil and gas as a strategic sector for the country's industrial development and national defense. ONGC is a leader in India's oil and gas industry, producing 70% of the country's total crude oil and around half of its natural gas. It has established more than 7 billion tons of confirmed hydrocarbon reserves in the country, with six out of seven producing basins in India having been discovered by the company.

Dinesh K. Sarraf is chairman and managing director of ONGC, which is under the administrative control of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. Sarraf has more than 30 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, having started his career with Oil India. He joined ONGC in 1991 and has filled various key posts, including finance director and managing director of ONGC Videsh before being elevated by the government to his current position in March 2014. He is credited with reviving ONGC Videsh, which suffered huge losses after the purchase of Russia-focused Imperial Energy in 2009.
