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

 

    1. Crude oil production by ONGC during November, 2019 was 1673.22 TMT which is 7.33% lower than the target and 1.89% lower when compared with November, 2018. Cumulative crude oil production by ONGC during April-November, 2019 was 13638.33 TMT, which is 3.79% and 3.60% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively.

 

  • ESP issues in wells of NBP and Ratna R-series fields.
  • Increase in water cut in certain wells of Mumbai High, Heera, Neelam and B-173A fields.
  • Sub-sea leakage in some well fluid lines of MH Asset leading to flow restriction.
  • Power shut downs & electrical faults in Mehsana.
  • Decline in pressure & increase in water-cut in Kesanapalli West field in Rajahmundry     and Lakwa field in Assam.

 

    1. Crude oil production by OIL during November, 2019 was 260.17 TMT which is 7.20% lower than monthly target and 4.67% lower when compared with November, 2018. Cumulative crude oil production by OIL during April-November, 2019 was 2147.00 TMT which is 5.19% and 4.22% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively. Major reasons for lower production is less than planned contribution from workover wells and drilling wells.

 

    1. Crude oil production by Pvt/JVs during November, 2019 was 680.90 TMT which is 12.39% lower than the monthly target and 15.13% lower than November, 2018. Cumulative crude oil production by Pvt/JVs during April-November, 2019 was 5939.43 TMT which is 8.92% and 11.18% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

  • RJ-ON-90/1-MANGLA (CEIL): Delay in making 45 FM-1/4 infill wells on line. Lag in liquidating the inventory of planned work overs and production optimization jobs. ESP failure in some wells.
  • Operational issues in Bhagyam, Aishwarya and ABH fields. (CEIL)
  • CB-ONN-2005/9 (Mercator): Oil production from Jyoti-1 is stopped. Well closed for long term pressure build up study and could not be put back in production due to non-grant of EC for development campaign.
