DIBRUGARH, March 24: ONGC clarified its stand regarding the issue of gas production of QNGC during 2012-13, LPG plant of GAIL at Lakwa and new employment opportunity which were voiced by different organizations through various platforms including newspapers and electronic media.
ONGC stated that the total gas production of Assam Asset in the year 2012-13 was 472.2 MMSCM (Million Standard Cubic Metres), which was published in local as well as tiol newspapers at the same time. Moreover, statement on gas availability for 100 years has never been on record and ONGC gives no cognizance to such alleged statement. But, the process for upgradation of oil, gas installation and pipelines with modern technology is continuing under ONGC’s VISION-2030.
ONGC, Assam Asset is at present supplying a lion share of gas (approximately 0.6 MMSCMD) to GAIL’s LPG plant at Lakwa, subsequently lean gas is supplied to Lakwa Thermal Power Station by GAIL. Moreover, ONGC Assam Asset is gearing up to supply 1.0 MMSCMD (Million Standard Cubic Meters per day) of gas to the upcoming C2+ recovery plant of BCPL at Lakwa, as per agreement.
For smooth functioning of the oil field operations, ONGC Assam Asset recruited 213 candidates in the year 2013 and 389 in the year 2014 new candidates locally. The recruitment process is completely transparent and caliber-based, like written test as per qualification, physical fitness, and interview.
