On the other hand, the non-core income fell by 33% as there no one-off exchange gains present during the period. According to a search note by IGI Securities, the decline in non-core earnings was limited by the retrospective impact of revision in Uch field gas price notified by OGRA.

The company’s exploration costs depicted a 1.3x increase due to costs pertaining to one dry well and higher prospecting expense.

The finance costs also showed a substantial increase of 81% on the back of high-interest rates prevailing in the market.
