Reacting to high global crude oil prices, Petroleum Secretary S Sundareshan expressed concerns over the hike in prices, which he said would mean further revenue losses for oil firms.

“The under-recoveries of public sector oil companies at these price levels would touch Rs. 90,000 crore,” he said on the sidelines of the 12th International Energy Forum.
