ONGC Videsh output hits new high

NEW DELHI, May 8, 2017 – ONGC Videsh, the entity responsible for the international operations of India’s ONGC, achieved a record production of more than 92 million boe over 2016-2017, the company’s managing director said on Sunday.

According to Narendra K. Verma, output rose from 179,133 boepd in 2015-16 to 252,433 boepd, beating ONGC Videsh’s previous record, set in 2010-11, by more than 62,000 boepd.


Verma said last year’s acquisition of stakes in Russia’s Vankor oilfield put the company on track for record production.
