C. Financial risk management

C. i. Risk management framework

The Corporation’s Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the establishment and oversight of the Corporation’s risk management framework. The Risk Management Committee of the Board has defined roles and responsibilities, which includes reviewing and recommending the risk management plan and the risk management report for approval of the Board with the recommendation of the Audit Committee. The Corporation has adopted a Risk Management Charter and Policy for self-regulatory processes and procedures for ensuring the conduct of the business in a risk conscious manner.

The Corporation has exposure to the following risks arising from financial instruments:

- Credit risk ;

- Liquidity risk; and

- Market risk

C.ii. Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk of financial loss to the Corporation if a customer or counterparty to a financial instrument fails to meet its contractual obligations, and arises principally from the Corporation’s trade and other receivables, cash and cash equivalents and other bank balances, derivatives and debt securities. The maximum exposure to credit risk in case of all the financial instruments covered below is restricted to their respective carrying amount.

(a) Trade and other receivables from customers

Credit risk in respect of trade and other receivables is managed through credit approvals, establishing credit limits and monitoring the creditworthiness of customers to which the Corporation grants credit terms in the normal course of business.

As at 31st March 2018 and 31st March 2017, the Corporation’s retail dealers and industrial customers accounted for the majority of the trade receivables.

Expected credit loss assessment for Trade and other receivables from customers as at 31st March 2018 and 31st March 2017

The Corporation uses an allowance matrix to measure the expected credit losses of trade and other receivables.

The loss rates are computed using a ‘roll rate’ method based on the probability of receivable progressing through successive stages till full provision for the trade receivable is made. Roll rates are calculated separately for exposures based on common credit risk characteristics for a set of customers.

The following table provides information about the exposure to credit risk and Expected Credit Loss Allowance for trade and other receivables:

The Corporation does not provide for any loss allowance on trade receivables where risk of default is negligible such as receivables from other oil marketing companies, if any, hence the same excluded from above.

Loss rates are based on actual credit loss experience over the past three years.

(b) Cash and cash equivalents and Other Bank Balances

The Corporation held cash and cash equivalents and other bank balances of Rs, 88.07 Crores at 31st March 2018 (31st March 2017: Rs, 64.69 Crores). The cash and cash equivalents are held with banks with good credit ratings and financial institution counterparties with good market standing. Further, Corporation invests its short term surplus funds in bank fixed deposits, Government of India Treasury-bills and liquid schemes of mutual funds, which carry no / low mark to market risks for short duration. These instruments do not expose the Corporation to credit risk.

(c) Derivatives

The derivatives are entered into with banks, financial institutions and other counterparties with good credit ratings. Further exposures to counter-parties are closely monitored and kept within the approved limits.

(d) Investment in debt securities

I nvestment in debt securities are mainly as loans to subsidiary, joint venture companies and investment in Government securites which do not carry any significant credit risk.

C.iii. Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Corporation will encounter difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with its financial liabilities that are settled by delivering cash or another financial asset.

Liquidity risk is managed by Corporation through effective fund management. The Corporation has obtained fund and non-fund based working capital lines from various banks. Furthermore, the Corporation has access to funds from debt markets through commercial paper programs, foreign currency borrowings and other debt instruments.

The following are the remaining contractual maturities of financial liabilities at the reporting date. The amounts are gross and undiscounted, and include estimated interest payments.

Maturity Analysis of Significant Financial Liabilities

* Guarantees issued by the Corporation on behalf of joint venture/subsidiary are with respect to borrowings raised by the respective entity. These amounts will be payable on default by the concerned entity. As of the reporting date, none of the subsidiary/joint venture have defaulted and hence, the Corporation does not have any present obligation to third parties in relation to such guarantees.

C.iv. Market risk

Market Risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Market risk comprises three types of risk: currency risk, interest rate risk and other price risk.

C.iv.a Currency risk

The Corporation is exposed to currency risk on account of its operating and financing activities. The functional currency of the Corporation is Indian Rupee. Our exposure is mainly denominated in U.S. dollars (USD). The USD exchange rate has changed substantially in recent periods and may continue to fluctuate substantially in the future.

The Corporation has put in place a Financial Risk Management Policy to Identify the most effective and efficient ways of managing the currency risks. The Corporation uses derivative instruments, (mainly foreign exchange forward contracts) to mitigate the risk of changes in foreign currency exchange rates in line with our policy.

The Corporation do not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.

Exposure to currency risk

The currency profile of financial assets and financial liabilities as at 31st March 2018 and 31st March 2017 are as below:

Sensitivity analysis

A reasonably possible strengthening (weakening) of the USD against INR at 31st March would have affected the measurement of financial instruments denominated in US dollars and affected profit or loss by the amounts shown below. This analysis assumes that all other variables, in particular interest rates, remain constant and ignores any impact of forecast sales and purchases. In cases where the related foreign exchange fluctuation is capitalized to fixed assets or recognized directly in reserves, the impact indicated below may affect the Corporation’s income statement over the remaining life of the related fixed assets or the remaining tenure of the borrowing respectively.

C.iv.b Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk can be either fair value interest rate risk or cash flow interest rate risk. Fair value interest rate risk is the risk of changes in fair values of fixed interest bearing investments because of fluctuations in the interest rates, in cases where the borrowings are measured at fair value through profit or loss. Cash flow interest rate risk is the risk that the future cash flows of floating interest bearing investments will fluctuate because of fluctuations in the interest rates.

The Company’s approach to managing interest rate risk is to have a judicious mix of borrowed funds with fixed and floating interest rate obligation.

Fair value sensitivity analysis for fixed-rate instruments

The Corporation accounts for certain investments in fixed-rate financial assets such as investments in Oil bonds and Government Securities at fair value through profit or loss. Accordingly, a decrease in 25 basis point in interest rates is likely to increase the profit or loss (before tax) for the year ending 31st March 2018 by Rs, 67.15 Crores (31st March 2017 - Rs, 80.21 Crores) and an increase in 25 basis point in interest rates is likely to decrease the profit or loss (before tax) for the year ending 31st March 2018 by Rs, 68.30 Crores (31st March 2017 - Rs, 81.76 Crores).

Cash flow sensitivity analysis for variable-rate instruments

A reasonably possible change of 25 basis points in interest rates at the reporting date would have increased (decreased) profit or loss by the amounts shown below. This analysis assumes that all other variables, in particular foreign currency exchange rates, remain constant. In cases where the related interest rate risk is capitalized to fixed assets, the impact indicated below may affect the Corporation’s income statement over the remaining life of the related fixed assets.

C.iv.c Commodity rate risk

BPCL’s profitability gets affected by the price differential (also known as Margin or Crack spread) between prices of products (output) and the price of the crude oil and other feed-stocks used in production (input), prices of both are set by markets. Hence BPCL uses derivative instruments (swaps, futures, options and forwards) to hedge exposures to commodity price risk to cover refinery operating cost using Basic Swaps on various products cracks like Naphtha, Gasoline (Petrol), Jet/Kerosene, Gasoil (Diesel) and Fuel Oil against Benchmark Dubai Crude. Further volatility in freight costs is hedged through Freight Forwards and bunker purchases. Settlement of all derivative transactions take place on the basis of monthly average of the daily prices of the settlement month quoted by Platts.

BPCL measures market risk exposure arising from its trading positions using value-at-risk techniques. These techniques make a statistical assessment of the market risk arising from possible future changes in market prices over a one-day holding period.

BPCL uses historical model of VAR techniques based on variance/covariance to make a statistical assessment of the market risk arising from possible future changes in market values over a 24-hour period and within a 95% confidence level. The calculation of the range of potential changes in fair value takes into account positions, the history of price movements for last two years and the correlation of these price movements.

C.iv.d Price risk

The Corporation’s exposure to equity investments price risk arises from investments held by the Corporation and classified in the financial statements at fair value through OCI. The corporation intends to hold these investments for long-term for better returns and price risk will not be significant from a long term perspective.


A. The Corporation has Collaterised Borrowing and Lending Obligations limits from Clearing Corporation of India Limited, which are secured by Oil Marketing Companies GOI Special Bonds 2026. As the Counterparty currently does not have a legally enforceable right to off set these amounts, these amounts have not been offset in the balance sheet, but have been presented separately in the table above.

B. The Corporation purchases and sells petroleum products from different Oil Marketing Companies. Under the terms of the agreement, the amounts payable by the Corporation are offset against receivables and only the net amounts are settled. The relevant amounts have therefore been presented net in the balance sheet.

C. The Corporation enters into derivative transactions under the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) master netting agreements. In general, under such agreements the amounts owed by each counterparty on a single day in respect of all transactions outstanding in the same currency are aggregated into a single net amount that is payable by one party to the other.

D. The Corporation enters into derivative transactions under the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) master netting agreements. In general, under such agreements the amounts owed by each counterparty on a single day in respect of all transactions outstanding in the same currency are aggregated into a single net amount that is payable by one party to the other. The ISDA master netting agreements do not meet the criteria for offsetting in the balance sheet. This is because the Counterparty does not currently have legally enforceable right to offset recognized amounts, because the right to offset is enforceable only on the occurrence of future events.

NOTE 10.

In March 2018, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs issued the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2018 notifying Ind AS 115 ‘Revenue from Contracts with Customers’ (New Revenue Standard), which replaces Ind AS 11 ‘Construction Contracts’ and Ind AS 18 ‘Revenue’. The core principle of the New Revenue Standard is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers for an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Some of the key changes introduced by the New Revenue Standard include additional guidance for multiple-element arrangements, measurement approaches for variable consideration, adjustments for time value of money etc. Significant additional disclosures in relation to revenue are also prescribed. The New Revenue Standard also provides two broad alternative transition options - Retrospective Method and Cumulative Effect Method - with certain practical expedients available under the Retrospective Method. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of the New Revenue Standard on the present and future arrangements and shall determine the appropriate transition option once the said evaluation has been completed.

The amendments will come into force from 1st April 2018.
