i.B154N-1(B-154N-A) in Bombay Offshore 7 Year PML, Western & Offshore Basin

The Exploratory well B154N-1(B-154N-A) was drilled in Shallow water in Bombay Offshore PML to a depth of 3417 m in Western offshore basin. A clastic interval (Object-I: 3211-3217 m) in Panna Formation (Late Paleocene-Early Eocene) on conventional testing flowed Oil @ 72 BPD and 16147 m3/day of gas through 1/4” choke. This lead has opened up scope for future exploration in the area North of B154 and also facilitate in conversion of 7 Year PML to long-term regular PML.

The production is expected to commence from February 2019 and peak production rate of 2870 BOPD of oil and 56,350 M3/Day of gas is expected to be achieved in 2019-20. The cumulative production till 2031-32 is pegged at 0.760 MMt of oil & 0.213 BCM of gas. The oil and gas will be evacuated through existing Neelam Process facilities. The project envisages installation of one Well Head Platform, associated pipelines and drilling of 3 wells. The project is scheduled for completion by May 2019.
