“RIL is a net winner of higher sustained oil prices, especially in a situation where oil demand is rising and boosting refinery margins, with U.S. and Asian gas prices, which are inputs for its chemicals and utility usage trailing oil,” according to the financial services company.

While the recent oil price surge is also driven by supply concerns and raises refinery opex and crude premiums, negating some of the upside in product margins, it hits RIL’s refinery peers more than RIL and raises global margins, according to the analysis.
“Since a result, RIL’s overall gross refining margin has increased year-to-date, particularly as global fuel refinery markets remain exceptionally tight.”
Morgan Stanley rates RIL as ‘overweight,’ with a price objective of Rs 2,926 per share, representing a 25.8% upside potential.
