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 October, 2016 was 1872.31 TMT which is 1.38% lower than the monthly target and 1.94% less when compared with October, 2015. Cumulative crude oil production during April-October, 2016 was 12901.21 TMT which is 1.33% lower than target for the period and 1.89% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Shortfall in production was mainly due to less than planned production from matured and marginal fields.

1.1        Crude oil production by OIL during October, 2016 was 275.62 TMT which is 4.99% lower than monthly target but 3.64% higher than production in October 2015. Cumulative crude oil production during April-October, 2016 was 1880.40 TMT which is 1.50% lower than target for the period and 1.84% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. The major reason for shortfall in production was less than planned contribution from high producing areas like Greater Hapjan, Greater Chandmari and Nahorkatiya fields primarily on account of rise in water cut.

1.2        Crude oil production by Pvt. /JVs during October 2016 was 902.94 TMT which is 1.99% lower than the monthly target and 7.53% lower than October, 2015. Cumulative crude oil production during April-October, 2016 was 6332.90 TMT which is 0.89 % lower than target for the period and 6.40% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

v  High water cut in Bhagyam field & Natural Decline of Mangala wells of RJ-ON-90/1 and Process Shutdown at MPT on 3rd and 7th October in RJ-ON-90/1.
v  Natural Decline in Ravva & CB-OS/2.
v  Closure of 1 well in MA field in KG-DWN-98/3.

Natural Gas
2              Natural gas production during October, 2016 was 2755.13 MMSCM which is 5.35% lower than the target for the month and 1.43% lower than the production in October, 2015. Cumulative natural gas production during April-October, 2016 was 18478.66 MMSCM which is 3.94% lower than target for the period and 3.98% 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 October, 2016 and cumulatively for the period April-October, 2016 vis-à-vis same period of last year has been shown in Table-2 and month-wise in Figure-2.
