ONGC stops drilling in Kangra Himachal

Shimla: Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) had re-started exploration for oil and gas in Kangra district in 2009 but later abandoned it in February 2010,Industries Minister Kishan Kapoor said in a written statement in the assembly today.

The drilling work was re-started in December 2009 in Jwalamukhi area but because only water with very mild gas was found, the drilling was abandoned by ONGC. He said ONGC had deployed Mumbai-based private firm, Diwanchand Ramsaran Industries Private Ltd. for exploration work.

Earlier, in the 1980s and 1990s too ONGC had carried out drilling in the area as geographical surveys had indicated huge presence of oil and natural gas in the area.

In 1993, the exploration was abandoned because ONGC did not have proper drilling equipment to reach a depth of 10,000 metres.

At present, ONGC is carrying out oil exploration in the hills of Kasauli in Solan district.

    I have used my senses and checked the site being drilled by ONGC at kasauli and found as below The main drilling point is dislocated by 3.5 to 4 meters and further drilling is incling towards NORTH EST, and at this location even if ONGC drill upto 10000 meters it would be a failure.
    The exact point drilling would have given the below listed datas. 1) Gas availibility = at – 1250 Meters to -4360 ,2) Oil availibility is at -4361 to -4363 meters ( the ONGC can get at__discharge upto 15mm if diverted to exact loaction,Since ONGC is drilling at wrong point which is dislocated by 3.5 to 4 meters and further the drilling is inclined towards Norh west, ONGC Need to rectify this and make drilling straight and further to incling it towards SOUTH WEST Then only, ONGC__can get gas at level -3044 meters ( shoot ing of Gun at level -3044 might Be required.An hand made sketch has been handed over to The geologist and Mr H.__Singh ( Incharge of ONGC Kasauli).__ ONGC started rectifying the drilling position to make it straight after my checking and further they are trying to incline it towards SOUTH-WEST . If ONGC SUCEED THEY WILL GET AMPLE OF GAS AND OIL AT THE LEVELS GIVEN ABOVE
    Due to some echenical difficulties the drilling has been stopped however all arrangement for making drill straight and diverting it towards SOUTH WEST are being started by ONGC. If ONGC Succeed to divert it towards SOUTH west from exeisting location the will gat gat at -3044 meters and oil at level -4360 Meters

      As per the latest updates, the ONGC has corrected the verticality of the drilling and now the will rach the level of -3044 with in next 10 days means by 4rth of December 2010.
      Since ONGC is not trying to divert it toward SOUTH west from original drilling location they hardly get GAS AT -3044.

      But my sences still says that even if they do not divert they will get nominal gas at -3044 with in next 10 days or by 4rh of December 2010.

      And if ONGC get faith on me then they can get oil at level of -4360 to -4363 a per previous detemination. But ONGC has to drill as per my Determinations

        Dear Sir,

        The ONGC has drilled more than -3044 and no trace of gas has been found. The cases are Two- Either the verticality of the bore was not maintained or the very hard strata at this level could not found any fracture for nominal Gas leakage to boring point from under ground source.

        Now ONGC is Drilling beyond this depth but this exercise is a waste exercise. ONGC Need To Divert it towards SOUTH WEST or the entire drilling will go in waste as the availability of Gas in around 4 meters away from present drilling.

        If ONGC follow up the drawing issued by me then they can get Gas as well as Oil near level -4360.

        But If ONGC continue drilling at this point nothing would become achievable and this would become a failure bore.

        Hope the Best for the Country

          Dear Sir,
           
          The loss has happened finally, Because ONGC did not divert the rig towards SOUTH west as per my previous quote on dated September 2010.
           
          So finally ONGC bind up it and started de mobilizing from Kasauli.
           
          This is really a great loss to the COUNTARY.
           
          If they could have diverted it , the ONGC could have achieved the goal.
           
          Lets hope for the best for the country.
           
          Regards
