  1. Crude Oil Production

1.1       Indigenous crude oil production (including condensate) during December, 2015 was 3079.611 TMT which is 1.38% lower than the target for the month and 4.09% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Cumulative crude oil production during April-December, 2015 was 27952.376 TMT which is 1.07% higher than target for the period and 0.79% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Unit-wise and state-wise crude oil production is given at Annexure-I. Unit-wise crude oil production (including condensate) for the month of December, 2015 and cumulatively for the period April-December, 2015 vis-à-vis same period of last year has been shown in Table-1.1 and month-wise in Figure-1.1

1.2       ONGC’s crude oil production during December, 2015 was 1895.637 TMT which is 0.47% lower than the target for the month and 0.06% higher than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. ONGC’s cumulative production during April-December, 2015 was 16883.815 TMT which is 0.30% lower than the cumulative target and 0.96% 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: Poor influx, ceasure of wells, increase in water cut, power shutdown, lift optimization & delayed / less gain from Gamij Field.

Ø  Gujarat, Cambay: Less than envisaged production from Nadiad and Vadatal, increase in water cut.

Ø  Assam: Low Gas injection pressure & poor influx.

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

 

1.3          OIL’s crude oil production during December, 2015 was 270.124 TMT which is 12.41% lower than the target for the month and 6.30% lower than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. OIL’s cumulative production during April-December, 2015 was 2450.612 TMT which is 8.33% lower than the cumulative target and 4.97% 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  Less than planned contribution from workover & new wells

 

 

1.4       Pvt. /JVs’ crude oil production during December, 2015 was 913.850 TMT which is 0.45% higher than the target for the month and 11.12% lower than production of corresponding month of last year. Pvt./JVs’ cumulative production during April-December, 2015 was 8617.949 TMT which is 7.08% higher than the cumulative target and 2.86% lower than the production during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are given below:

Ø  Cairn: Shutdown of Mangla processing terminal. Natural decline in Ravva, Mangala and underperformance of Bhagyam wells in RJ-ON-90/1

Ø  RIL: Under performance of wells of KG D6.

Ø  JV of ONGC, BG & RIL: Less production in Panna-Mukta due to shutdown.

Ø  GEOENPRO: Sand ingress in Kharsang

2.2       ONGC’s natural gas production during December, 2015 was 1818.978 MMSCM which is 11.65% lower than the target for the month and 4.16% lower than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. ONGC’s cumulative natural gas production during April-December, 2015 was 16272.130 MMSCM which is 8.50% lower than the cumulative target and 1.96% lower than the production during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for the shortfall are given below:

v  Eastern Offshore: Delay in commencement of production from one deep water well

v  Bassein & Satellite: Less production from new well/side-track wells and decline in Bassein fields. Inspection / maintenance of compressors at BPA/BPB platforms

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

v  Tripura: Less off take due to stoppage of 2nd unit of OTPC

2.3       OIL’s natural gas production during December, 2015 was 266.102 MMSCM which is 2.65% higher than the target for the month and 14.66% higher than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. OIL’s cumulative natural gas production during April-December, 2015 was 2120.061 MMSCM which is 6.64% lower than the cumulative target and 3.00% higher than the production during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for the shortfall are given below:

Ø  Shortfall in production of natural gas is mainly due to low uplifitment by the following consumers:-

  1. a) LTPS due to transporters line capacity constraint.
  2. b) BCPL, due to pre-commissioning job
  3. c) Less offtake by Tea Gardens due to off season

 

2.4       Pvt. /JVs’ natural gas production during December, 2015 was 651.910 MMSCM which is 6.81% lower than the target for the month and 16.91% lower than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. Pvt. /JV’s cumulative natural gas production during April-December, 2015 was 6305.113 MMSCM which is 0.05% lower than the cumulative target and 6.48% lower than the production during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for the shortfall are given below:

Ø  RIL (KG-D6): Underperformance of MA wells.

Ø  JV of BG, RIL & ONGC: Less Production in Panna Mukta of BGEPIL due to shut down PPA riser repair. 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.

Ø  Cairn: Non-associated gas producing well LB-7 watered out prematurely in CB-OS2. M &S Tapti field proposed for abandonment.

Ø  Other operators: Hazira field proposed for abandonment. Natural decline in PY 1, Dholka.

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

3.2       PSU Refineries’ production during December, 2015 was 10848.589 TMT which is 0.91% higher than the target for the month and 2.83% higher than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. Cumulative production of PSUs during April-December, 2015 was 91958.032 TMT which is 0.71% higher than the cumulative target and 2.40% higher than the production during the corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfalls in PSU refineries are given below:

v  IOCL, Gujarat: Throughput is restricted due to lower North Gujarat crude availability.

v  IOCL, Digboi: Throughput is restricted due to lower Assam crude availability.

v  IOCL, Panipat: Throughput is lower due to planned HCU shutdown.

v  CPCL, Manali: Crude throughput was lower than plan on account of (i) Refinery shutdown due to unprecedented rain and floods during first week of Dec’15. (ii) VGO containment due to single MUG compressor operation of Hydrocracker Unit.

v  CPCL, Narimanam: Crude throughput lower than target as RCO/LSHS movement to Manali Refinery was affected due to floods and CDU was under shutdown from 6.12.15 to 14.12.15.

v  NRL, Numaligarh: Lower receipt of Crude from OIL.
