Figure-1: Monthly Crude Oil Production

 

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

    1. Crude oil production by ONGC during January 2019 was 1766.98 TMT which is 12.47%lower than the monthly target and3.80%lower when compared with January 2018. Cumulative crude oil production by ONGC during April-January, 2018-19 was 17675.14TMT which is 7.51% and 5.41% lower than the cumulative target and production respectively during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall are as under:

 

  • Loss from WO-16 and B-127 fields in the absence of MOPUs Sagar Samrat and Sagar Laxmi.
  • Electric submersible pump (ESP) problem in wells of NB Prasad (NBP) field.
  • Sub-sea leakage in some well fluid lines of Mumbai High & Neelam Heera Asset, leading to flow restriction.

 

    1. Crude oil production by OIL during January 2019 was254.79 TMT which is 23.37%lower than monthly target and 10.73% lower when compared with January 2018. Cumulative crude oil production by OIL during April-January, 2018-19 was 2771.38 TMT which is 10.39% and 2.22% lower than the cumulative target and production respectively during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall are as under:

 

  • Environmental loss (Bandh and miscreant activities)
  • Less than the planned contribution from work over well and drilling wells.

 

    1. Crude oil production by Pvt/JVsin PSC regime during January 2019 was 825.90 TMT which is 6.07% lower than the monthly target and3.31%lowerthanJanuary, 2018. Cumulative crude oil production by Pvt/JVs during April-January, 2018-19 was 8338.73TMT which is 2.68% and 0.63% lower than the cumulative target and production respectively during the corresponding period of last year. Major reasons for lower production are;

 

  • A major deficit in production is from Mangala due to delay in Mangala Processing Terminal (MPT) Upgrade and 45 infills and NE field development drilling campaign delivered less than expected yield (CEIL)
  • Decline in production from Stage-I wells and delay in Stage-II wells in the Aishwarya Barmer Hill (ABH) field (CEIL).
  • Around 65 oil wells are closed due to various reasons like high water cut, require Work-over-Job (WOJ), etc. and 30 Mangala wells are closed due to liquid handling constraint at MPT plant (CEIL).

 

2.Natural Gas

Natural gas production during January 2019 was 2841.45 MMSCM which is 8.75% lower than the target for the month but5.43% higher when compared with January 2018. Cumulative natural gas production during April-January, 2018-19 was 27491.66MMSCM which is 7.42% lower than the target for the period but 0.4% higher when compared with the production during the corresponding period of last year. Unit-wise and state-wise natural gas production are given at Annexure-II. Unit-wise natural gas production for the month of January 2019 and cumulatively for the period April-January, 2018-19 vis-à-vis same period of last year has been shown in Table-2 and month-wise in Figure-2.
