Figure-1: Monthly Crude Oil Production
 
Unit-wise production details with reasons for shortfall are as under:
    1. Crude oil production by ONGC during January, 2019 was 1766.98 TMT which is 12.47%lower than the monthly target and3.80%lower when compared with January, 2018. Cumulative crude oil production by ONGC during April-January, 2018-19 was 17675.14TMT which is 7.51% and 5.41% lower than the cumulative target and production respectively during the corresponding period oflast year.Reasons for shortfall are as under:
  • Loss from WO-16 and B-127 fields in the absence of MOPUs Sagar Samrat and Sagar Laxmi.
  • Electric submersible pump (ESP) problem in wells of NB Prasad (NBP) field.
  • Sub-sea leakage in some well fluid lines of Mumbai High & Neelam Heera Asset, leading to flow restriction.
    1. Crude oil production by OIL during January, 2019 was254.79 TMT which is 23.37%lower than monthly target and 10.73% lower when compared with January, 2018. Cumulative crude oil production by OIL during April-January, 2018-19 was 2771.38 TMT which is 10.39% and 2.22% lower than the cumulative target and production respectively during the corresponding period of last year.Reasons for shortfall are as under:
  • Environmental loss (Bandh and miscreant activities)
  • Less than planned contribution from work over well and drilling wells.
    1. Crude oil production byPvt/JVsin PSC regime during January, 2019 was 825.90 TMT which is 6.07% lower than the monthly target and3.31%lowerthanJanuary, 2018.Cumulative crude oil production by Pvt/JVs during April-January, 2018-19 was 8338.73TMT which is 2.68% and 0.63% lower than the cumulative target and production respectively during the corresponding period of last year.Major reasonsin for lower production are; 
  • Major deficit in production is from Mangala due to delay in Mangala Processing Terminal (MPT) Upgrade and 45 infills and NE field development drilling campaign delivered less than expected yield (CEIL)
  • Decline in production from Stage-I wells and delay in Stage-II wells in the Aishwarya Barmer Hill (ABH) field (CEIL).
  • Around 65 oil wells are closed due to various reasons like high water cut, require Work-over-Job (WOJ), etc. and 30 Mangala wells are closed due to liquid handling constraint at MPT plant (CEIL).

Figure-2: Monthly Natural Gas Production
    1. Natural gas production by ONGC during January, 2019 was 2169.76 MMSCM which is 4.21% lower than the monthly targetbut10.44% higher when compared with January, 2018. Cumulative natural gas production by ONGC duringApril-January, 2018-19 was 20586.02MMSCM which is 5.13% lower than the cumulative target but4.95% higher than the production during the corresponding period of the last year.Some of the reasons for shortfallagainst monthly target are as under:
  • Pressure/ potential decline in GS-4 Gas cap reservoir in Gandhar field.
  • Less off take by consumers/ grid restrictions/ shut downs in Tripura
    1. Natural gas production by OIL during January, 2019 was 222.29 MMSCM which is 10.22% lower than the monthly targetand6.78% lower than January, 2018. Cumulative natural gas production by OIL during April-January, 2018-19 was 2283.08 MMSCM which is 13.38% and 6.26% lower than the cumulative target and production respectively during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall are as under:
  • Loss of potential in Deohal area due to presence of CO2 in production stream.
  • Environmental loss (Bandh and miscreant activities).
    1. Natural gas production by Pvt/JVs during January, 2019 was 449.40 MMSCM which is 25.25% lower than the monthly target and8.65% lower when compared with January, 2018.

Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:
  • Sohagpur West CBM Block: Performance of CBM wells not as per expectation. Production impacted due to the constraint imposed by IFFCO on CBM. (RIL)
  • RJ-ON/6: Less offtake by buyer and low gas production due to stuck up in two wells. (FEL)
  • Raniganj East CBM Block: Few wells closed for planned maintenance and refrac jobs. Major customer 'Matix' operational shutdown. (ESSAR)
