Assam Asset over-achieves targets
Three major fields under Assam Asset, Geleki, Jorhat and Lakhamani have surpassed their respective targets. This turnaround has come close on the heels of the gas sales target, achieved by the Asset 22 days before the end of the fiscal year 2010. It was more than two decades ago that Assam Asset achieved the pre-decided annual targets.
The oil production targets for Geleki, Lakhmani and Jorhat fields had been kept at 37,85,74 MT, 148855 MT and 12,52,69 MT respectively. Out of the above, Jorhat has the distinction of reaching the targets before the end of the fiscal for the third time in a row. Assam has the oldest oil fields of India.
Exemplary co-ordination among specialized teams like the Drilling, Well Services, Engineering Services, Subsurface, Logistics and Surface resulted in hooking up the two wells NRDI and NRDF to the Group Gathering Station (GGS) in record time, thereby getting these prolific producers on stream.
