Figure-2: Monthly Natural Gas Production

    1. Natural gas production by ONGC in the nomination blocks during November 2021 was 1727.24MMSCM, which is 11.26% lower than target for the month and 5.28% lowerthan the production of November 2020. Cumulative natural gas production by ONGC during April-November, 2021 was 13784.73 MMSCM, which is 10.95% and 6.14% 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 anticipated production from WO-16 cluster due to delay in mobilization of MOPU Sagar Samrat.
  • Less than planned production from Vasistha /S1 wells in EOA due to certain reservoir related issues.
  • Delay in commencement of gas production from U1 field of KG-98/2 Cluster-II due to covid impact as manufacturing of subsea items and well completion got delayed.
  • Less production due to decline in Tapti-Daman block.
  • Decline in production from Pasarlapudi, Adavipalem&Endamuru fields in Rajahmundry.
    1. Natural gas production by OIL in the nomination block during November 2021 was 248.84MMSCMwhich is 2.65% higher than target for the month and 22.03% higher than the production of November 2020. Cumulative natural gas production by OIL during April-November2021 was 1949.40 MMSCM, which is 16.86% higher than production during corresponding period of last year but 1.13% lower than target for the period. Major reasons for shortfall in production is less than planned contribution from drilling wells /old wells.
    1. Natural gas production by Pvt/JVs companies in the PSC/RSC/CBM regime during November 2021 was 893.39 MMSCM, which is 194.05% higher than the production of November 2020 but 18.91% lower than the target for the month. Cumulative natural gas production by Pvt/JVs during April-November 2021 was 7043.09MMSCM, which is 199.8% higher than production during corresponding period of last year but 3.26% lower than target for the period.Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:
  • KG-DWN-98/2 (ONGC): Delay in commissioning of Wells U1-A of KG-DWN-98/2 block. 2) Well U1-2 (U1-B) producing less than the estimated profile.
  • RJ-ON-90/1 (Cairn Energy India Ltd): Few Gas wells of RDG field are not producing as per expectations.
  • RANIGANJ EAST (Essar Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Ltd.): Shortfall because delay in scheduled operations.
  • RJ-ON/6 (Focus Energy Ltd.): Shortfall in gas production was on account of decline in production of some of the wells and less offtake by consumers.
