No Plan to Undersell Petrochem Feedstock

Although Indian investors have signaled their interest in petrochemical projects, they stress that gas feedstock prices offered by Iran is too expensive to let them clinch a final deal, National Petrochemical Company's deputy for investment said.
"Indians had asked for natural gas feedstock to be priced at about 6 cents per cubic meter for urea and ammonia plants, but Iran does not intend to offer its gas resources for cheap," Hossein Alimorad was also quoted as saying by IRNA. 
According to the official, investment in development projects in underprivileged regions is entitled to receive feedstock discount, but slashing prices by 50% is impossible.
"Negotiations usually go well, yet it has never ended up in an agreement because Indians claim they will be overcharged for the feedstock," he said, adding that NPC believes prices are set based on international norms. Alimorad noted that Indians have always sought very low prices and NPC has quoted internationally-approved prices.
