NEW DELHI: IndiaÂ’s largest oil producer Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC), has lost nearly 900 of its skilled experts in the last one year to its competitors, who offered 4-5 times more salary than the state-owned firm.

"In last one year alone, ONGC has seen 900 key personnel leave the company to joint multinationals or private companies. And this outflow is expected to increase to alarming proportions in the near future," warned ONGC's Association of Scientific and Technical Officers (ASTO) president LK Mirchandani.

Multinational and private exploration firms offer wage packages at least 4 to 5 times that of ONGC, while the latter flounders when it comes to offering either a career prospect or attractive wages, he said.

Mirchandani said ONGC officers would join the indefinite strike called by Oil Sector Officers' Association (OSOA) from May 31 to demand higher wages.

A strike could mean loss of $36.54 million per day in revenue from stoppage of 71,000 tons per day of crude oil output. Besides 54 million standard cubic meters per day gas production would also be shut, he said.
