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 May, 2016 was 1888.30 TMT which is 1.66% higher than the monthly target but 0.88% less than compared with May 2015. Cumulative crude oil production during April-May, 2016 was 3690.06 TMT which is 0.97% higher than target for the period and 0.82% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

  • Offshore: Decline in production from Cluster 7 wells. Separator cleaning job in Heera field. Natural decline from Matured Fields
  • Gujarat, Ahmedabad: Less production from Jhalora, South Kadi & Limbodara fields because of reservoir issues. Transfer of 4 marginal fields (Sadra, Mahilaj, Vatrak & Asmali) to Cambay.
  • Assam: Low gas lift pressure in Geleki field due to ASEB shut downs & tripping of Gas Lift Compressor
  • Rajahmundry: Production decline in Kesanapalli-West Gopavaram & Lingala/Kaikular fields on account of reservoir issues.
  • Karaikal: Less than envisaged production from Kamlapuram, Vijaypuram & Narimanam fields.

1.2  Crude oil production by OIL during May, 2016 was 271.40 TMT which is 1.46% higher than monthly target but 4.77% less than May 2015. Cumulative crude oil production during April-May, 2016 was 532.81 TMT which is 0.95% higher than target for the period but 5.81% lower than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:

  • Well head potential of OIL’s producing wells in North East declined at a rate of 20.4% in 2015-16 as against anticipated decline of about 14%. The potential build up from the development well completed during 2015-16 was also lower than expected.

Figure 3: Monthly Refinery Production (TMT)

 

3.1  PSU Refineries’ production during May, 2016 was 11570.98 TMT which is 1.76% lower than the target for the month and 9.15% higher than the production achieved in the corresponding month of last year. Cumulative production during April-May, 2016 was 22707.57 TMT which is 0.9% lower than the target for the period and 13.37% higher than the production during corresponding period of last year. Reasons for shortfall of refinery production of PSU refineries are as under:

  • IOCL, Paradip: Throughput is lower as secondary units are still under commissioning and stabilization.
  • IOCL, Guwahati & Digboi: Lower crude availability.
  • CPCL, Manali: Throughput in Manali refinery was lower than target to contain VGO. Hydro-cracker Unit was under shut down for 7 days for Reactor catalyst scooping.
  • MRPL, Mangalore: Throughput restricted due to water crisis.
