1.2       ONGC’s crude oil production during January, 2016 was 1832.293 TMT which is 6.19% lower than the target for the month and 2.84% lower than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. ONGC’s cumulative production during April, 2015-January, 2016 was 18717.153 TMT which is 0.90% lower than the cumulative target and 0.58% higher than the production during the corresponding period of last year. The shortfall in ONGC’s production was due to following reason:

Ø  Gujarat, Mehsana: Less Air injection in Santhal field, increasing water cut in down dip wells of N Kadi field, increase in water cut, increase in sick wells & power shut down.

Ø  Gujarat, Ahmedabad: Delayed / less gain from Gamij Field. Power shutdown, lift optimization.

Ø  Assam: Low Gas injection pressure, power shut down & closure of wells for rig-less jobs.

Ø  Tamilnadu, Karaikal: Less than anticipated production from Madanam field & closure of wells due to less / nil off-take by consumers.

Ø  Mumbai High: Delay in commencement of production from B127 cluster. Less production from Cluster-7 & WO-16 cluster.

Ø  Condensate: Less condensate from Hazira Plant due to less gas receipt in view of less gas production from B & S Asset mainly because of BPA shutdown.

1.3          OIL’s crude oil production during January, 2016 was 260.361 TMT which is 16.65% lower than the target for the month and 9.81% lower than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. OIL’s cumulative production during April, 2015-January, 2016 was 2710.973 TMT which is 9.20% lower than the cumulative target and 5.46% lower than the production during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are given below:

Ø  Rise in water cut in wells of Shalmari, Greater Chandmari and Greater Hapjan Fields.

Ø  Permanent loss at Makum & Hapjan OCS.

Ø  Major loss of production at Makum, Hapjan, Haveda and TX due to OIL blockade by All   Moran Student Union, Makum Regional Committee on 27.01.2016.

Ø  Miscreant activities in no. of wells affected gas lift operation leading to crude oil production loss.

Ø  Less than planned contribution from workover & new wells

1.4       Pvt. /JVs’ crude oil production during January, 2016 was 944.883 TMT which is 3.86% higher than the target for the month and 6.54% lower than production of corresponding month of last year. Pvt./JVs’ cumulative production during April, 2015-January, 2016 was 9562.835 TMT which is 6.75% higher than the cumulative target and 3.24% lower than the production during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are given below:

Ø  Cairn: Natural Decline in Ravva, Mangala & Underperformance of Bhagyam wells in RJ-ON-90/1

Ø  RIL: Under performance of wells of KG D6 due to sand ingress and water loading.

Ø  GSPC: Well Completion Issues in KG-OSN-2001/3

Ø  Other: Due to Sand Ingression, High W/C and fish in few wells of Kharsang.  Panna-Mukta carried out its planned shutdown for riser repair in April- May-15 and Gas Evacuation constraint in July’15 due to repair of 42” SB – HAZIRA ONGC Line. S/Dn in Dec-15 due to PPA riser issue.

v  Gujarat: Closure of wells due to unplanned shut down of GAIL Gas line from Ahmedabad/Kalol to Ramol. Decline in associated gas production in South Kadi & Gamij fields

v  Andhra Pradesh: Closure of 42 wells as GAIL pipelines in Tatipaka-Lanco & Endamaru-Oduru sections are still under repair.

v  Tamilnadu: Closure of wells on account of less/ nil off-take by consumers in Ramnad area.

v  Assam: Decline in associated gas production in Geleki & Lakwa fields.

Reasons for the shortfall are given below:

Ø  RIL (KG-D6): Under performance of wells of KG D6 due to sand ingress and water loading.

Ø  GSPC: Well completion issues in KG-OSN-2001/3

Ø  Cairn: CB-OS/2: Non-associated gas producing well LB-7 watered out prematurely

Ø  Other operators: Natural Decline in Gas production of Ravva, Panna-Mukta, PY-1 and Hazira. Panna-Mukta carried out its planned shutdown for riser repair in April- May-15 and Gas Evacuation constraint in July’15 due to repair of 42” SB – HAZIRA ONGC line, shutdown in Dec-15 due to PPA riser issue.

Ø  CBM: Extended dewatering in Raniganj South (GEECL), Delayed forest clearance in Raniganj East (Essar).
