Hydrocarbon Production Strategy

Production of Crude Oil from Barmer-Sanchore Basin by Cairns India

  • * 38 Fields Discovered viz. Saraswati, Rageshwari, Mangla, Aishwarya, Kameshwari, Shakti, Guda, Bhagyam-South-1, Bhagyam, Vijaya, Vandana, Tukaram Amble, GR-F, N-H-2, N-I, N-R-4, N-E, GS-V-1, Tukaram etc.
  • * Field Development Plans (FDP) of 11 fields namely Mangla, Aishwarya, Saraswati, Rageshwari & Rageshwari Deep Gas approved by MoP&NG, Government of India.
  • * Field Development Plans of remaining other fields shall be undertaken depending upon the production profile & strategy of that field.
  • * Commercial Production of Crude Oil has commenced w.e.f 29.08.2009 from Mangla Field. Presently, production @ 1,65,000- 170,000 bbls/day is in progress from Mangla, Bhagyam, Aishwarya Saraswati & Raageshwari & Aishwarya fields.

Development of Heavy Oil Resource in Rajasthan by Oil India Ltd

  • * Geological, reservoir & basin modeling studies completed.
  • * A Pilot well spudded and drilled upto the depth of 856 mts.
  • * Trial production of Heavy Oil conducted between Sept, 2009 to Oct, 2009 and the same shall be resumed this year which may lead to commercial production after proving its producibility through suitable EOR technique.
  • * OIL has planned for drilling of 3 pilot wells to spud this year

Exploitation of Natural Gas Resources of Jaisalmer Basin & Barmer-Sanchore Basin

  • * Presently, 0.5 to 0.75 MMSCMD natural gas is being produced from Jaisalmer Basin by Oil India & ONGC. However, optimum production of lean gas reserves is anticipated by work-over of wells or connecting additional wells or by blending with high calorific gas from Jaisalmer Basin.
  • * Lean gas reserves could be utilized by blending with rich gas from 4 PML areas by ONGCL namely Manhera Tibba, Bakriwala, Ghotaru (LG) & Chinnewala Tibba (RG) and its use for generation of power.
  • * Focus Energy has entered into an agreement with GAIL (India) Ltd and Rajasthan Rajya Vidhyut Utpadan Nigam (RRVUN) for supply of Natural Gas to 110 MW Ramgarh Power Plant and additional unit of 160 MW. Presently, 1.5 MMSCMD natural gas is being produced from SGL Field (Shahgarh area) for existing units (110 MW + 160 MW) of Ramgarh Power Plant.
  • * ONGCL had a tie-up with M/s Deep Industries Ltd. (DIL) to develop Ghotaru & Bakriwala area.
  • * Production of commercial gas is initiated from Raageshwari Field of Barmer - Sanchore Basin by Cairn India, besides gas is being utilized for heating purpose of company’s petroleum production operations. The commercial gas is being produced about 0.3MMSCMD and transported through Salaya- Mathura pipeline to Bhogat terminal for off-take to supply GNFC.
