India reports flat crude oil production in April.

India’s crude oil production in April 2018 remained nearly flat, decreasing marginally by 0.83 per cent to 2,915 Thousand Tonne (TMT) as compared to 2,939 TMT produced in the corresponding month a year ago, pushing the country’s import dependence to 83.7 per cent for the month, latest figures published by the oil ministry showed.

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), the state-owned upstream player, recorded a 3.7 per cent drop in crude oil production to 1,777 TMT in April on the back of decreased output from the company’s onshore and offshore blocks.

ONGC’s crude production from onshore blocks declined marginally by 0.6 per cent to 496 TMT in the month as compared to the corresponding month a year ago. The decrease in production was primarily due to lower output from the company’s Andhra Pradesh block. Production from other onshore blocks in Asssam, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu remained flat.

The firm’s production from offshore blocks decreased 5 per cent to 1,281 TMT for April mainly owing to lower output from western offshore blocks.

Oil India Ltd (OIL), the second-largest state-run upstream player, witnessed crude oil production increasing marginally to 274 TMT in April. The near-flat production was due to less than planned contribution from old wells. OIL’s crude production from fields in Assam increased marginally and declined from fields in Arunachal Pradesh and Rajasthan.

Crude production from fields operated by Private upstream companies and Joint Ventures (JVs) increased 5.37 per cent to 863 TMT mainly due to increased production from the Rajasthan block.

Onshore production by private upstream firms and JVs increased 5.61 per cent to 715 TMT in April 2018 as compared to the corresponding month a year ago. The rise in production is mainly due to increased production from the Rajasthan block and marginal increase in output from Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Assam and Tamil Nadu blocks. Offshore production rose marginally by 6 TMT to 148 TMT in April primarily due to increased production from Gujarat offshore
