Figure-1: Monthly Crude Oil Production

 

 

 

 

Unit-wise production details with reasons for shortfall are as under:

 

1.1        Crude oil production by ONGC during August, 2017 was 1898.47 TMT which is 2.98% lower than the monthly target but 1.78% higher when compared with August, 2016. Cumulative crude oil production by ONGC during April-August, 2017 was 9457.74 TMT which is 1.16% lower than target for the period but 2.52% higher than production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

Ø Offshore: Natural decline and increase in water cut from matured fields of Western Offshore. Due to severe monsoon and harsh weather conditions, wells at unmanned platforms could not be attended / monitored which affected regular operations like Gas Lift De-optimization, ESP failure & minimum well monitoring / stimulation etc.

Ø Onshore: Power shut down in Mehsana (heavy rain) and Assam Assets.

 

1.2        Crude oil production by OIL during August, 2017 was 288.48 TMT which is 8.99% lower than monthly target but 6.03% higher than production in August, 2016. Cumulative crude oil production by OIL during April-August, 2017 was 1416.81 TMT which is 9.46% lower than target for the period but 5.50% higher than production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

Ø Less than planned achievement due to higher decline in production potential of wells mainly in Greater Hapjan and Greater Chandmari areas.

Ø Less than planned contribution from work over wells.

 

1.3        Crude oil production by Pvt/JVs during August, 2017 was 832.98 TMT which is 7.76% lower than the monthly target and 10.47% lower than August, 2016. Cumulative crude oil production by Pvt/JVs during April-August, 2017 was 4230.06 TMT which is 5.06% lower than target for the period and 7.60% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

Ø RJ-ON-90/1 (CIL): Around 120 wells are closed either due to high water cut or require WOJ. Poor reservoir performance of Bhagyam. Production stopped from Guda, Kaameshwari West, Raageshwari and Saraswati due to non-availability of tanker since July’17.

Ø Panna-Mukta (Shell): Certain wells closed due to integrity issues in Aug’17. Also, natural decline in Panna-Mukta.

Ø CY-ONN-2002/2 (ONGC): Test production from 5 oil wells. PML not yet granted.

Ø CB-ONN-2004/2 (ONGC): Underperformance of wells.

Cumulative natural gas production during April-August, 2017 was 13689.67 MMSCM which is 5.39% lower than target for the period but 4.31% higher than the production during corresponding period of last year. Unit-wise and state-wise natural gas production is given at Annexure-II.
