Mangala Field Hits 300 Million Barrels of Cumulative Production

Cairn India Limited announced Thursday that the Mangala oil field in Rajasthan has achieved 300 million barrels of cumulative production.

Mangala along with the Bhagyam, Aishwariya and Raageshwari oil and gas fields make up the Rajasthan block, where Cairn India’s Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) program, the world’s largest Polymer EOR project, is being implemented to help arrest natural decline and maintain production.

Cairn India launched the first polymer injection at Mangala in 2014. By end of 2015, the company had ramped up its polymer injection rate and completed the Mangala Alkaline Surfactant Polymer (ASP) pilot successfully. Mangala EOR contributed an average of 42,000 barrels of additional oil per day during the last quarter.

The company has a portfolio of eight blocks – one block in Rajasthan, two on the west coast, four on the east coast of India, and one in South Africa. Oil and gas is currently being produced from Barmer, Ravva and Cambay. The Mangala field, discovered in January 2004, is the largest onshore oil discovery in India in more than two decades.
