BPCL Q4 Results 2022
The decline in the company's net profit in Q4 was mainly due to the fuel prices that it held despite the rise in cost. Notably, BPCL and other public sector oil companies held petrol and diesel prices for a record duration despite a surge in the cost of crude oil to a 14-year high. These companies started raising fuel prices from March 22 onwards but it ceased within 16 days.
Although the company's revenue from operations rose 25 per cent to Rs 1.23 lakh crore on higher oil prices, the losses on petrol, diesel and domestic LPG sales dented its financials.
