ONGC to spend Rs 2,393 crore in drilling 145 wells in Cambay basin in Gujarat

India’s state-owned petroleum explorer Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) is planning to spend Rs 2,393 crore in drilling 145 development wells across 30 mining leases in Cambay Basin in Gujarat.

The drilling of the development wells will take place in 13 fields – including Ankleshwar, Motwan, South-west Motwan, Kosamba, Kim, Olpad, Gandhar, Dahej, Pakhajan, Jambusar, Dabka, Matar and Nada — of Cambay Basin, the firm said in an application to the Environment Ministry.

“Development wells proposed to be drilled are expected to be completed in 45-60 days depending up upon the target depth. Drilling operations will be carried out with electrical type rig.

Once the drilling operations are completed and if sufficient indications of hydrocarbons are noticed during drilling, the well is tested by perforation in production casing,” ONGC said. Read More
