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

 

    1. Crude oil production by ONGC(Oil and Natural Gas Corporation) in nomination blocksduring December, 2020 was 1700.54TMT which is 4.74%lower than target and 2.75%lower when compared with December 2019. Cumulative crude oil production by ONGC during April-December, 2020 was 15209.09 TMT which is 3.79%and 1.16% lower than target for the period andproduction during corresponding period of last year respectively. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

  • Production planned from WO-16 cluster could not be realized due to delay in Mobile Offshore Production Unit (MOPU) (Sagar Samrat) as activities at Gulf piping company (GPC) yard Abu Dhabi got affected due to COVID-19 restrictions/lockdown
  • Production planned from new wells in Ratna field affected due to non- availability of electric submersible pumps (ESPs) for well completion due to implications of COVID-19.
  • New wells planned under Cluster-8 development project delayed due to delay in installation of new platforms due to COVID-19 implications.

Also, well and surface facilities Projects impacted by COVID-19 at Tukaram, Kaam-1 and GSV Fields.
  • B-80 (Hindustan Oil Exploration Company Ltd): Production not commenced due to delay in completion of field development activities due to COVID-19.
  • RAVVA (Cairn Energy India Ltd): Decline in production from producer wells.
  • CB-ONN-2004/2 (Oil & Natural Gas Corporation): Production is less due to COVID-19 situation, rig mobilization got delayed resulting in drilling of new wells and less crude offtake.
  • CB-ONN-2004/2 (Oil & Natural Gas Corporation): Development wells could not be drilled as planned.
