Unit-wise production details with reasons for shortfall have been given below:

1.1       Crude oil production by ONGC in nomination block during April, 2020 was 1681.77 TMT which is 0.65% lower than the monthly target and 0.53% lower when compared with actual production in April, 2019. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

    • Closure of wells in Western Offshore due to less offtake by M/s GAIL due to Covid-19 Lockdown.
    • Restriction of movements for field operations in Onshore fields due to Covid-19 lockdown.

 

1.2       Crude oil production by OIL in the nomination block during April, 2020 was 248.25 TMT which is 0.9% lower than monthly target and 6.39% lower when compared with actual production in April, 2019. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

    • Less than planned contribution from workover wells and drilling wells.
    • Rise in water cut and decline in liquid production from existing wells.
    • Loss of production due to nationwide lockdown for COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

1.3       Crude oil production by Pvt/JVs in the PSC regime during April, 2020 was 615.80 TMT which is 3.73% lower than the monthly target and 19.25% lower when compared with actual production in April, 2019. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

    • RJ-ON-90/1- Mangala: Delay in hook-up of new wells, ESP failure, delay in workover wells revival and new injector due to COVID 19 impact. (CEIL)

2.1       Natural gas production by ONGC in the nomination block during April, 2020 was 1725.69 MMSCM which is 12.73% lower than the monthly target and 15.31% lower when compared with actual production in April, 2019. The shortfall in gas production is primarily due to less gas off take by consumers due to Covid-19 lockdown.

2.2       Natural gas production by OIL in the nomination block during April, 2020 was 202.05 MMSCM which is 4.64% lower than the monthly target and 9.99 lower when compared with actual production in April, 2019. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

 

  • Loss of potential in Deohal area due to presence of CO2 in production stream.
  • Less gas off take by consumers due to Covid-19 lockdown.

2.3       Natural gas production by Pvt/JVs in PSC regime during April, 2020 was 233.59 MMSCM which is 1.03% lower than the monthly target and 40.67% lower when compared with actual production in April, 2019. The shortfall in gas production is primarily due to less gas off take by consumers due to Covid-19 lockdown.
