Company wise, ONGC produced 1,621.92 TMT of crude oil in June 2021, which is 2.06 per cent lower than the monthly and 2.73 per cent lower when compared with production of June 2020 on account of less than anticipated production from WO-16 cluster and loss in oil production due to impact of cyclone Tauktae.
The company produced 230.14 MMSCM of natural gas, which is 4.97 per cent more than the production of June 2020 but 5.16 per cent lower than the aim for the month. The decrease in natural gas output was on account of low upliftment/demand of gas by the major customers and also due to the bandhs /blockade by local people and associations after the Baghjan blowout.
