The reduction in ONGC’s production output in Q1 FY 2023-24 was due to:

  1. Shutdown in Panna-Mukta offshore platforms for commissioning of new crude oil pipeline to modernise its evacuation facilities, post taking over from JV Partners.
  2. Cyclone Biparjoy (June 2023) disrupted offshore and onshore production.
  3. Crude oil wells in southern India had to be stopped as a refinery there stopped receiving oil, following a leakage in their pipeline.

To counter the decline in production from some of the matured and marginal fields, ONGC is taking proactive steps by implementing well interventions and advancing new well drilling activities.The current decline in production is temporary. The same will be compensated in upcoming quarters with commencement of additional production from new projects; especially by crude oil production commencement from KG 98/2 in Q3 2023-24.

  1. Exploratory Success:
  • ONGC has declared total 4 discoveries (1 in onland and 3 in offshore) during 1st Quarter of FY 2023-24 in its operated acreages. Out of these, 3are prospect (offshore) and 1 pool discovery(onland).

Out of 4 discoveries notified till date during FY 2023-24, 1 discovery viz. Gopavaram-21 hasalready been monetized by ONGC.

The details of the latest discoveries notified since last press release in this regard on 26.05.2023 are as under:

  1. The Exploratory well, ST-6 was drilled in Mid and South Tapti PML area in Mumbai Offshore (Shallow water). The well has flowed gas both from Mahuva and Daman Formations. This is the first well drilled in the Mid-South Tapti ML since it was re-granted to ONGC in July’2021.. The well has opened up a new area beyond the established limits of the Mid Tapti-South Tapti fields. This prospect discovery has been named as “Pukhraj”.
  1. The development well Gopavaram-21 was drilled in Srikattapalli-Pasarlapudi (24) & Gopavaram PML area in KG onland basin.This success has been notified as Zone of Potential Commercial Interest (New Pool) as this new pay zone for the first time has proved hydrocarbon in the area.
