Figure-1: Monthly Crude Oil Production

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

 

    1. Crude oil production by ONGC(Oil and Natural Gas Corporation) in nomination block during February, 2021 was 1544.84TMT which is 2.22%lower than target and7.66%lower when compared with February 2020.

Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

  • Production planned from WO-16 cluster could not be realized due to delay in MOPU (Sagar Samrat) as activities at 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 ESPs (Electrical submersible pump) due to implications of COVID-19. Presently rigs are deployed at two well platforms and wells are being completed with ESPs.
  • New wells planned under Cluster-8 development project delayed due to delay in installation of new platforms due to COVID implications.
