Crude Oil

1.      Crude oil production during September, 2016 was 2917.43 TMT which is 2.82% and 4.09% lower than target and production achieved in September 2015 respectively. Cumulative crude oil production during April-September, 2016 was 18063.64 TMT which is 1.09% and 3.30% lower than target and production during corresponding period of last year respectively. Unit-wise and state-wise crude oil production is given at Annexure-I. Unit-wise crude oil production for the month of September, 2016 and cumulatively for the period April-September, 2016 vis-à-vis same period of last year has been shown in Table-1 and month-wise in Figure-1.

Figure-1: Monthly Crude Oil Production



Unit-wise production details, with reasons for shortfall, have been given in following sub-sections:



1.1  Crude oil production by ONGC during September, 2016 was 1803.68 TMT which is 1.77% lower than the monthly target and 2.83% less when compared with September, 2015. Cumulative crude oil production during April-September, 2016 was 11028.90 TMT which is 1.32% lower than target for the period and 1.89% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production in some fields are as under:



v  Less than planned production from matured and marginal fields & increase in water cut in few wells of Heera field.



1.2     Crude oil production by OIL during September, 2016 was 261.84 TMT which is 4.32% lower than monthly target but 0.13% higher than production in September 2015. Cumulative crude oil production during April-September, 2016 was 1604.78 TMT which is 0.87% lower than target for the period and 2.72% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:



v  Less than planned contribution from high producing areas like Greater Hapjan, Greater Chandmari fields & Naharkatiya fields on account of rise in water cut.

v  Loss in production of 1236 MT on account of bandhs and miscreant activities/local problems at various locations during the month



1.3    Crude oil production by Pvt. /JVs during September, 2016 was 851.90 TMT which is 4.51% lower than the monthly target and 7.81% lower than September, 2015. Cumulative crude oil production during April-September, 2016 was 5429.96 TMT which is 0.70 % lower than target for the period and 6.21% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

v  Panna-Mukta: Lower production due to closure of wells in PC, PG (till 23rd Sept’16) & PF (till 16th Sept’16) due to riser integrity issue.
v  Less production from RJ-ON-90/1 due to downtime related to wells intervention in Mangala, Bhagyam & Aishwarya; higher than expected water cut from Bhagyam wells & EPS/Packer failure in 2 wells in Aishwarya.
v  Natural Decline in Ravva & CB-OS/2

Cumulative natural gas production during April-September, 2016 was 15723.54 MMSCM which is 3.69% lower than target for the period and 4.41% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Unit-wise and state-wise natural gas production is given at Annexure-II. Unit-wise natural gas production for the month of September, 2016 and cumulatively for the period April-September, 2016 vis-à-vis same period of last year has been shown in Table-2 and month-wise in Figure-2.

Figure 3: Monthly Refinery Production


Refineries’ production during September, 2016 was 10767.22 TMT which is 0.98% lower than the target for the month but 10.62% higher than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. Cumulative production during April-September, 2016 was 67366.62 TMT which is 1.30% higher than the target for the period and 11.03% higher than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall of refinery production in some PSU refineries are as under:

v  IOCL, Paradip: Throughput lower due to Naphtha containment.
v  IOCL, Digboi/ Guwahati: Lower availability of Assam crude.
v  HPCL, Mumbai: Lower capacity utilization due to hydrogen unavailability in view of unplanned shutdown of CCR/HGU units.

3.2 Production in JV refineries during September, 2016 was 1416.46 TMT which is 32.34% higher than the target for the month but 7.22% lower than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. Cumulative production during April-September, 2016 was 8774.56 TMT which is 16.23% higher than the target for the period and 2.88% higher than the production during corresponding period of last year.

Cumulative production during April-September, 2016 was 45359.10 TMT which is 3.31% higher than the target for the period and 4.52% higher than the production during corresponding period of last year.

3.4 Refinery-wise details of the capacity utilization and production of petroleum products during the month of September, 2016 and cumulatively for the period April-September, 2016 vis-à-vis April-September, 2015 are given at Annexures-IV and V respectively.


v  Delay in startup on account of reactor maintenance pursuant to planned shutdown from 10.09.2016 to 25.09.2016.
