Cumulative crude oil production by ONGC during April-December, 2019 was 15386.96 TMT which is 4.79% and 3.28% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively.

Ø  Non realization of production from WO-16 cluster due to unavailability of MOPU.

Ø  ESP issues in wells of NBP field and Ratna R-series.

Ø  Less production from B-127 Cluster due to increase in water cut.

Ø  Increase in water cut in certain wells of Mumbai High, Heera, Neelam & B173A.

Ø  Disruption in field activities in Assam due to protests.

1.2         Crude oil production by OIL during December, 2019 was 207.74 TMT which is 29.52% lower than monthly target and 24.44% lower when compared with December, 2018.

Figure-2: Monthly Natural Gas Production

2.1    Natural gas production by ONGC during December, 2019 was 1998.37 MMSCM which is 11.58% lower than target and 9.04% lower when compared with December 2018. Cumulative natural gas production by ONGC during April-December, 2019 was 17918.28 MMSCM which is 5.75% and 2.70% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively.

Ø  Non-realization of gas production planned from WO16 cluster from Dec’19 in absence of MOPU.

Ø  Less Gas production from Vasistha/S1 wells in EOA due to sand incursion issues.

Ø  Less production due to less gas off take by OTPC, Tripura.

Ø  Disruption in field activities in Assam due to protests.

Ø  Less gas off take by gas consumers.

2.2         Natural gas production by OIL during December, 2019 was 225.98 MMSCM which is 17.38% lower than monthly target and 2.87% lower than December, 2018. Cumulative natural gas production by OIL during April-December, 2019 was 2077.79 MMSCM which is 0.82% higher than the production during the corresponding period of last year but 18% lower than the cumulative target. Major reason for shortfall in production is less gas withdrawal by major customers owing to shutdown of their plants.

2.3        Natural gas production by Pvt/JVs during December, 2019 was 416.44 MMSCM which is 4.87% lower than monthly target and 4.67% higher than December, 2018. Cumulative natural gas production by Pvt/JVs during April-December, 2019 was 3854.29 MMSCM which is 5.70% and 7.64% lower than target for the period and production during corresponding period of last year respectively. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

Ø  RJ-ON/6: Production is lower due to less offtake by consumers. Production also lowers due to zone pressure depletions in some wells, water ingress and tubing damage. (FEL)

Ø  Sohagpur West: Dewatering wells gas breakout awaited, slow gas ramp up in pilot wells and scaling in producing wells. (RIL)
