Reasons for shortfall in production are as under:
  • KG-DWN-98/2 (Oil & Natural Gas Corpn.): U3-B well is flowing less than the expected profile and delay in commissioning of Wells of U1-field.
  • KG-DWN-98/3 (Reliance Industries Ltd): As production commencement from R-Cluster (D34) field of KG-DWN-98/3 was delayed due to COVID from June 2020 to December 2020 which hampered the gradual ramp-up of Gas production.
  • RJ-ON/6 (Focus Energy Limited): Reduced Gas offtake by buyer.
  • Raniganj East (Essar Oil and Gas Exploration & Production Ltd): Production is lower due to less sales off-take.
  • KG-OSN-2001/3 (Oil & Natural Gas Corpn.): Well D7 is planned to be safely abandoned.
