Figure-2: Monthly Natural Gas Production

    1. Natural gas production by ONGC in the nominationblocks during January, 2021 was 1865.68MMSCM which is 9.02% lower than target and 9.10% lower when compared with January 2020. Cumulative natural gas production by ONGC duringApril-January, 2020-21 was 18410.0 MMSCM which is 8.32% and 7.81% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively.Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:
  • Less Gas production from WO16 cluster due to delay in MOPU.
  • Less than planned production from Vasistha / S1 wells in EOA due certain reservoir related issues.
  • Less than planned production from new subsea wells in Bassein field due to delay in subsea umbilical connections/hook up jobs in view of Covid-19 implications.

 

    1. Natural gas production by OILin the nomination block during January, 2021 was 211.94 MMSCM which is 1.66% higher than January, 2020 but 16.98% lower than monthly target. Cumulative natural gas production by OIL during April-January, 2020-21 was 2081.76 MMSCM which is 7.97% and 7.72% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:
