GUJS reported an in line 4QFY21. Transmission volumes at 33.8mmscmd, with implied tariff at INR1,277/mscm. Volumes were impacted by an abrupt spurt in spot LNG prices to USD20-30/mmbtu in Jan-Feb’21, which primarily impacted Power sector demand (-48% QoQ).

The Mehsana-Bhatinda pipeline, which was earlier expected to be commissioned in Jun’21, is delayed owing to the second COVID wave and the farmers protest. It is now guided to be completed in 2HCY21. We lower our FY22E volumes to 40mmscmd (from 42mmscmd earlier).
