Essar decides to double CBM gas production

Essar Oil and Gas Exploration and Production (EOGEPL) has decided to double production of coal-seam gas from its Raniganj east block in West Bengal.

The Ruia family-owned company is planning to achieve the target as a vital Urja-Ganga gas pipeline connecting users in eastern India gets commissioned by year-end.

At present, EOGEPL currently produces about 0.45 million standard cubic metres per day due to constraints of pipelines that could take the gas to consumers.

“The company plans to ramp up the production to more than 1 mmscmd,” a PTI report quoted an official of the company, who did not want to be named, as saying.

The report said the company has already invested Rs 4,000 crore in the project, which encompassed drilling of 348 wells, setting up the supply infrastructure, and laying pipelines to Durgapur and nearby industrial areas.
