ANNEXURE TO DIRECTOR’S REPORT
MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT
The predecessor in interest of BVFCL i.e., HFCL‟s and FCI‟s Namrup Unit started
nourishing the soils of Eastern India since 1969. It continued till date to be the major
source of Urea Fertilizer to all 7 (seven) states of North-east India and parts of West
Bengal and old Bihar. The company even supplied urea to complex manufacturers as far
as Chennai and Goa and exported urea to Nepal. Its „Mukta‟ brand is a household name in
the Eastern India and the same is a reputed brand image in terms of quality of prill. In
spite harsh weather condition (excessive rain), abnormal situation and remoteness from
the mainland, the company is striving through dedication of its employees and active
support from the Government.
Its Namrup-III Plant produced 93.34% of its capacity and had there been no gas
shortages it could have achieved higher capacity utilization. However Namrup-III could
achieve highest annual production since formation of BVFCL. The overall specific energy
consumption for Namrup-III was 12.52 Gcal/MT of urea during the year, which was also
lowest since formation of the company. Only one stream of Namrup-II was in operation
due to gas limitation from the supplier M/s Oil India Limited. Performance of Namrup-II
remained sub-optimal due to breakdown of equipments. Unreliability in supply of Natural
Gas also led to lower production. There have been restrictions in plant load and
production stoppages due to Natural Gas limitations from M/s Oil India Ltd caused due to
miscreant activities. Besides, the production loss, these sudden tripping of plants creates
thermal shock in old equipments/ machineries which lead to further breakdowns of
Your directors are regularly following up at different levels with Oil India Ltd and
concerned ministries for steady supply of Natural Gas. A tripartite meeting was held with
Oil India Ltd. & ONGC on 8th November 2007 to discuss the gap in supply of natural gas
to BVFCL. M/s ONGC expressed their inability to supply gas to BVFCL. M/s Oil India Ltd
assured supply of 1.72 MMSCMD gas to BVFCL in winter months and 1.60 MMSCMD in
summer months only due to supply constrains (eg Tea Gardens). They were non-
committal on supplying gas beyond 1.72 MMSCMD.
The existing plants operating in Namrup are of vintage design and belongs to the genre of
low capacity and high energy consumption. A proposal was initiated in 2006 to set up a
new brown field Ammonia-Urea Plant which would have replaced the existing plants and
increased the production from 3.9 Lakh MT of Urea to around 8.5 Lakh MT of urea per
annum consuming same amount of gas as on today. An alternate proposal for retrofitting/
renovating the existing plants for capacity augmentation and lowering of energy
consumption also remains under consideration.
Pending any decision on the above proposals, maintenance of the existing plants is
necessary for continuation of production for another 4-5 years. There is shortage of
spares for the equipments leading to frequent breakdowns and no reliability of the
equipments. Being low capacity with high energy consumption, the revenue generated is
just enough to meet running expenses. For investment in renovation and replacement,
the company requires to borrow money from the Government. But due to high interest
rates of such loans, the company‟s balance sheet becomes negative. The company is
avoiding further loans in view of the liability of interest which is already around Rs.188
crores. However, unless some critical equipments are attended, the capacity utilization of
Namrup-III will further go down. The company in 2007-08, has borrowed Rs.7.47 crores
plan loan and Rs.20.96 crores non-plan loan from Government at an interest rate of
11.5%. Rs.20.96 crores will be spent to attend two critical limitations i.e. Retrofitting
Synthesis Gas Turbine and Replacement of Synthesis Converter Baskets of Namrup-III.
Similarly, Namrup-II also requires investment for the equipments and systems which were
not revamped. In 2008-09, the Government is willing to give a plan loan of Rs.19.98
crores at an interest rate of 11.5%. Thus during 2008-09, about 40 crores will be
committed for investment which will be financed from these loans. Since the loans carry
high rate of interest and the company is already carrying liability of huge interest, a
request has been made to the Government to convert these loans into Grant-in-Aid to
make operations profitable.
2. Industry Structure & Government policy:
Fertilizers have been a major contributing factor to the growth of Indian
agriculture over the last five decades. The overall fertilizer consumption in the
country has recorded phenomenal growth in last few years. The consumption of
urea which was 19.8 million tones in 2003-04 has risen to above 26 million tones
in 2007-08. With indigenous fertilizer production stagnating, the imports of
finished fertilizers have increased significantly in the past four years. No major
investment has taken place for creation of additional fertilizer capacities in the
country for more than a decade. The current supply demand gap is about 10
million tones of fertilizer which is likely to increase further and cross 16 million
tones by the end of the 11th Five Year Plan. Addition to domestic capacity by way
of new projects and through revamp, retrofit etc of existing urea plants is urgently
needed. The investment policy to encourage capacity addition with reasonable
rate of return on investment is required from the Government.
The Government of India has approved the New Pricing Scheme (NPS) stage – III
for Urea Units in the country. Under NPS-III notification concession rate of Urea
produced from Namrup-III has been reduced by Rs.488 per MT w.e.f 01.10.2006
from the existing rate of Rs.6097 per MT of Urea under NPS-II. The decrease in
concession rate is mainly due to non-recognition of Capital Expenditure incurred
beyond March 2003 in Namrup Revamp Project pertaining to Namrup-III. This will
lead to huge recovery to the tune of Rs.15 crores for past periods. With the
implementation of NPS notified price even after achieving the target production for
Namrup-III, the company will incur cash loss. This will further deteriorate financial
position of the company. The company will not be able to generate even the
working capital for operation of the plants. A request has been made to the
Department of Fertilizers to recognize existing concession rate of Rs.6097 per MT
of Urea (as per NPS-II) for Namrup-III till approval of the Cabinet Note for Second
Revised Project Cost & Time of Namrup Revamp Project.
3. Production Review:
The Company produced 3,29,977 MT of Urea during the year. Urea production
from Namrup-III was 2,52,010 MT. This is the highest annual urea production so
far achieved since the formation of BVFCL and an increase of 7.03% over previous
year‟s production. There was 27% increase in production of Urea from Namrup-II
against preceding years. The production was 77,967 MT of Urea for 2007-08.
One of the constraints for higher production was lower availability of gas which
resulted in production loss of 22,929 MT of Urea during the year. Apart from gas
shortage, performance of Namrup-II suffered mainly due to repeated failures in
Electrical Systems, Reformed Gas Boiler tube sheet failure, Flue Gas Boiler
leakage, tube leakage in 3rd Superheater in Waste Heat Recovery Section.
Production from Namrup-II ammonia plant was restricted due to low efficiency of
condensers of Process Refrigeration Compressor. Action for Condenser tube
bundles replacement have been taken. Namrup-III production was limited due to
high vibration in EMG turbine of Synthesis Gas Compressor, high axial
displacement in HP barrel of Process Air Compressor.
During the year the company produced 19.34 MT of Bio-fertilizer.
4. MARKETING REVIEW
During the year under review, sale of urea increased from 314670 MTs in 2006-07
to 333,191 MTs in 2007-08 including 4894 MT urea export to Nepal. Sale of Bio-
fertilizers also increased from 4.80 MT in 2006-07 to 15.15 MT in 2007-08.
Company has started trading of seeds and sold 718 MT of paddy seeds valued Rs.
1.04 crores and 595 MT of wheat seeds valued 1.05 crores with the total turnover
of Rs. 2.90 crores. To reduce the marketing cost, various steps were taken such
as freight rationalization, introduction of two-point rakes & mini-rakes, sales
through private godowns and rationalization of rebates through private godowns
and rationalization of rebates were also continued this year and made operative in
the marketing territory. Company is also exploring the possibility of trading
Pesticides, Organic manure, Micro nutrients and Fertilizers viz. Urea, MOP, SSP,
etc. from other companies.
5. FUTURE OUTLOOK AND INITIATIVE FOR THE CURRENT YEAR.
The company has to maximize urea production consuming minimum energy. Weak
spots hindering sustained production has been identified and efforts are being
made to overcome them, as stated below:
1. EMG Turbine of Synthesis Gas Compressor of Ammonia-III: The plant load
remains restricted due to high vibration in EMG Turbine. As short term solution,
rotor of EMG turbine will be replaced with reconditioned rotor in annual
shutdown in 2008-09. Retrofitting of EMG Turbine with new designed rotor
along with other internals is the long term solution. As rotor of existing design is
no more manufactured, a new designed rotor has to be procured and retrofitted
to existing turbine. Order for new rotor is under processing.
2. Synthesis reactor catalyst basket (S-100) of Namrup-III is very old, presently
leaking with catalyst coming out. Present basket requires to be replaced with
new energy efficient S-200 basket. Action has been initiated for its
3. Replacement of 1st compartment of RG Boiler of Namrup-II
4. Renovation of Electrical System: Procurement action of spares have been
5. Overhauling of Compressors and replacement of intercoolers, vacuum systems
etc. of Namrup-III
6. Repair of Cooling Tower Pumps and renovation of Cooling Tower of Namrup-III.
7. Replacement of Primary Reformer catalyst of Namrup-III.
8. Condensers of Process Refrigeration Compressor: Tube bundles require
The company plans to implement further energy conservation schemes in future.
The Plant performance is adversely affected due to shortage of technically
qualified and competent manpower in almost all the disciplines of the company.
Difficulties has been experienced in meeting the requirement of in-house technical
expertise in remote place like Namrup due to non-availability of technically
competent outside agencies and reluctance on the part of good contractors to
come to Namrup. Efforts are being made to employ qualified, competent and
experienced persons from outside. Management has taken suitable actions for
engagement of retired employees of Fertilizer PSUs on contract basis.
Company has submitted viability proposal prepared by PDIL to the Department of
Fertilizers for submission to the Board for Reconstruction of Public Sector
Enterprises (BRPSE). The proposal carries following waiver, reliefs, dispensation
and concessions to the BVFCL :
Conversion of Loan portion (Rs. 317.77 crores) of total revamp project
cost (Rs. 635.53 crores) into Equity. ;
Waiver of earlier loan and interest (Rs. 248.30 crores)
Continuation of special dispensation in pricing mechanism under New
Pricing Scheme stage – III (NPS-III) for Namrup- III as provided in NPS
–II and recognition of effect of capitalization made beyond 2002-03
under Namrup Revamp Scheme.
Pricing of Namrup-II as per the erstwhile Retention Price Scheme (RPS)
De-rating of production capacity for Namrup-II to at least 50% of rated
capacity due to non-availability of gas presently.
It was also recommended to BRPSE for a new Brown Field Plant for
better utilization of natural resources in the long run.
6. IT ADOPTION / UP-GRADATION
The company has progressively gone IT savvy and LAN with broad-band Internet
facilities is now available at 50 work stations. Not much could be done during the
bygone year in terms of investment in IT to upgrade or augment resources.
Company desires to make progressive and pragmatic investment for upgrading the
existing IT infrastructure aiming at an Enterprise Level IT solution in the near
future. Guidance of RCF‟s IT Experts has been sought to make detailed study and
recommend action plan considering company‟s IT expansion goal. Company‟s
website is regularly updated and all provisions of the Right to Information Act and
Corporate Governance have been kept uploaded.
7. STATUS OF ISO 9001 & 14001 CERTIFICATE
Namrup-III plants of the company have been Quality Management System (QMS)
ISO 9001:2000 and Environment System Management (EMS) ISO 14001:1996
compliant. Both the certificates are expired in April, 2008 and May, 2008
respectively. The re-certification audits are being planned so that Namrup –III
plants remain ISO compliant, both in QMS (ISO 9001:2000) and EMS (ISO
8. INTERNAL CONTROL SYSTEM:
