 I have around 30 sequences within a schema say schema_xyz. I would like to give select privilege on all the sequences. What is the best way or command to do it. Any links, resources, sample code, ideas highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You can select All Sequences available using the below query

SELECT 'GRANT SELECT ON ' || SCHEMA || '.' || sequencename || 'TO hr;' as grant_stmt

Once you have the list, you can execute the dynamic sql statements in a cursor loop for all Sequences.

Create the following script and call it grant.sql

set heading off pagesize 0 feedback off
spool grantscript.sql

select 'grant select on '||sequence_owner||'.'||sequence_name||' to xyz;'
from all_sequences
where sequence_owner = 'MYUSER;

spool off


Run the above from sqlplus as follows:

sqlplus username/password @grant

Obviously you will need to change MYUSER and xyz as appropriate.

This should work as well.

You need to replace schema_abc with the schema you want to grant the privileges to.
  for c1rec in (select 'grant select on ' || sequence_owner || '.' || sequence_name || ' to schema_abc' stmt from dba_sequences where sequence_owner = 'SCHEMA_XYZ') loop
    execute immediate c1rec.stmt;
  end loop;
