With Mukhesh Ambani and brother Anil Ambani literally on a warpath regarding the sharing of natural gas, the issue has got the attention of all the concerned ministries. The issue has also been raised in Parliament.
Mukhesh and Anil, the two richest men in the world, have been at loggerheads over the supply and pricing of natural gas. Anil’s group company RNRL is seeking gas from Mukesh Ambani’s RIL’s KG fields at the committed price of USD 2.34 per mmbtu.
According to reports, both Mukhesh and Anil have met Prime Minister DR Manmohan Snigh separately requesting his action in settling the dispute. Both the brothers have also met the ministers of Petroleum, Finance and Commerce.
The issue of gas supply and pricing is now pending with the Supreme Court and a decision is awaited.
