The oil secretary has said that Reliance Industries will be able to pump natural gas at full capacity from its deep-sea field during the year to March 2013, indicating a delay of almost two years. The stock too has been weak off late, and has fallen 5.5 percent since July.

BP Plc is in talks with Reliance Industries to sell its African retail assets that could be worth as much as $500 million, four sources told Reuters last week.
