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

 

    1. Crude oil production by ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation) in nomination block during July 2021 was 1664.94 TMT, which is 3.81% lower than target of the month and 4.23% lower when compared with production of July 2020. Cumulative crude oil production by ONGC during April-July, 2021 was 6477.08 TMT, which is 3.12% and 4.85% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

  • Less than anticipated production from WO-16 cluster due to delay in mobilization of MOPU Sagar Samrat.
  • Less than anticipated production from Cluster-8 fields due to delay in inputs as installation of wellhead platforms delayed due to Covid impact.

 

    1. Crude oil production by OIL (Oil India Ltd) in the nomination block during July 2021 was 253.30 TMT, which is 1.08% higher than the production of corresponding month of last year but 2.57% lower than target of the reporting month. Cumulative crude oil production by OIL during April-July, 2021 was 995.64 TMT, which is 1.54% and 0.14% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

  • Less than planned contribution from workover wells, drilling wells and old wells.

Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

  • RAVVA (Cairn Energy India Ltd): Production shortfall is due to injectivity issues in wells RC-4ST and RC-11z, which has caused lower productivity from wells RD-3ST & RD-6ST.
  • CB-ONN-2000/1 (GSPC): Few wells not producing due to possible casing damage, reservoir issues, possible damage in sub surface assembly. Also, Minor shortfall wells PK2#A1 & PK2#A2 due to power failure by UGVCL.
  • CB-ONN-2004/2 (ONGC): Two development well in VD-3 discovery not drilled as per plan. The production rate of new development well Vadatal#22 is not as expected.
  • MB/OSDSF/B80/2016 (Hindustan Oil Exploration Company Ltd.): Delay in commencement of production.
