Reuters Market Eye - Oil explorers slump on worries higher gas pricing might be allowed only for incremental output, which dealers say can limit upside for such companies for at least the next two years.

Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC.NS) slumps 6.3 percent while Oil India (OILI.NS) is down 5.2 percent.
Among, private oil and gas producers Reliance Industries (RELI.NS) falls 2.8 percent while Cairn India (CAIL.NS) is down 0.8 percent.
