    Final Final Presentation Transcript

    • ORIGIN DGH was established through a Government Resolution on 8th April 1993 after approval of Cabinet.
    • VISION
    • FINANCE DGH is funded through OIDB grants.
    • FUNCTION & RESPONSIBILITIES • • • • • • • • • • Advisory Functions to Government. Acreages P S C. Data Acquisition. Processing. Interpretation. Visualisation. Drilling activities. Petro-physical Activities. Reservoir Monitioring, & Other Activities.
    • E & P ACREAGES • DGH’s responsibility in Indian E&P acreages. • India’s Sedimentary area . { 3.14=1.35 + 1.79 } • Active petroleum Exploration Licenses. • Under Mining Lease.
    • Production sharing contracts(PSC) Following activities are being carried out in PSC :• Review of work Programme and budget. • Facilitating of statutory and other clearances. • Management Committee Meetings. • Assignment of Participating Interest. • Other PSC related issues as and when arise.
    • Data Acquisition  Objective : Surveys undertaken by DGH :{total area of 2 million sq kms , 84% is in offshore and 16% in onland.}  Satellite gravity surveys- 1.642 million sq. kms. (82%).  Geochemical surveys  Shallow offshore geochemical surveys  Integrated geophysical surveys,  Aero-magnetic surveys.
    • Processing • Seismic Data Processing Center. • It consists of Sun V880 server, running on Sun Solaries operating system. • Used for : Seismic Data Management,  Data preparation for NELP rounds,  giving training to Graduate Trainees and  for some special Reprocessing for value addition:under Basin Integration Project.
    • Interpretation
    • Visualisation • Commissioning of the Virtual reality Center in April 2008. – “walking through” a 3D representation of underground rock structures. • Interpreters can scan multi-attribute/ multivolume seismic, well and cultural data, and reservoir models. • To facilitate :• review of development plans, locations and related G&G aspects. • aid the team of Geoscientists.
    • Drilling activities • Monitoring of Drilling activities in Onland and Offshore wells of NELP Pre-NELP blocks/fields. • To prepare various data related to rigs and wells. • Evaluation of drilling work programmes and budgets for all blocks and fields. • Evaluation of all EC applications related to drilling wells, rigs,OSVS etc. • Estimation of cost of unfinished drilling work programme of operators. • Technical scrutiny of all matters related to drilling/workover activities.
    • Petrophysical activities Involved in Independent analysis of wells in blocks under NELP,PRE NELP,Producing Field and nomination acreages with National Oil Companies. The broad activities are as follows: • Quality control checks and evaluation of well logs for estimation of thickness, porosity, saturation and identification of fluid contacts to establish reservoir limit & properties of fluid type. • Evaluate production logs recorded in producing fields to monitor the reservoir health. • Estimation of logging cost for unfinished work program of operators.
    • Reservoir monitoring • Evaluation of initial testing in a new discovery of hydrocarbons. • Evaluation of initial development plans and proposal for additional development plans. • Review of annual work program of PSC’s related to reservoir activities. • To ensure sound Reservoir management practices . • Monitoring the performance of EOR schemes under implementation. • Framing of long term production profiles of new NELP blocks. • Other miscellaneous activities.
    • Other activities • Assisting Government in formulation of Hydrocarbon related revenue policies. • NELP & CBM Bidding. • Economic evaluation of – Development Plans – Commerciality of discoveries • Review of :Annual Accounts Cost recovery
    • NATIONAL CO-OPERATIONS At the national level, DGH has embarked on the following : •Upgrade and modify the earth science curriculum to cater to the increasing needs and demands of the E & P industry. •Three brainstorming sessions. • 5 National Working Committees have been formed. •Various projects at National level have been initiated through various Institutions
    • INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION At the International level DGH has signed MOU with Alberta Research Council of Canada Energy Resource & Development Unit of Department of Trade & Industries of UK Norwegian Petroleum Directorate of Norway Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration & Development of China University of Aberdeen of UK Imperial College of London UK Department of Industry & Resources of Australia Japan Oil, Gas & Metals National Corporation of Japan The Korea Institute of geology, mining and materials Republic of Korea United States Geological Survey United States Department of Energy
    • Environment & Safety • Need to minimize adverse effect on the environment. • DGH ensures all mitigating efforts for protection of environment. • The PSC stipulates for protection of the environment under its Article 14.
    • Enforcement of the following by the contractor: • Contractor shall conduct its Petroleum operations with respect to protection of the environment and conservation of natural resources. • Employ modern oilfield and industry practices and standards including advanced techniques of operation for the prevention of environmental damage in conducting its petroleum operations. • Adequate compensation for injury to persons or damage to property caused by the effect of petroleum operations. • Comply with the requirements of applicable laws and the reasonable requirements of the government from time to time.
    • Enforcement of the following by the contractor: • • DGH coordinates with MOEF, CPCB and other concerned organizations on environmental issues and also assists MOP&NG on such matters. Environmental Impact Assessment studies: Hazards • Major Oil & Chemical spillage • Routine or Accidental discharges of waste • Blow - outs / Explosion • Flaring of Gases • Improper disposal of Effluents generated • Land subsidence & Wetland Losses
    • Legal Advisory : • Legal opinion on the issues referred to legal section in connection with various activities being undertaken by DGH. • Vetting of Contracts and (MOU). • Drafting of correspondence with contractors in connection with various issues being raised by contractors under PSC’s. • Legal vetting of Bank Guarantees, Amendments to PSC’s etc.
