New Delhi , Aug. 22

The country's crude oil production rose 4.1 per cent in July to 2.87 million tonne (mt) from 2.75 mt during the corresponding month last year. The country's natural gas output rose 2.4 per cent to 2.76 billion cubic meters (bcm) in the month under review from 2.69 bcm during the same period last year, a Petroleum Ministry data said.

Production from the Mumbai High fields, operated by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation, rose 3.6 per cent to 1.49 mt last month. Crude oil production by non State-owned explorers such as Cairn Energy Plc rose 13 per cent to 4,15,000 tonne up from 3,69,000 tonne during the same period last year, the statement said.

The crude throughput of refineries — Indian Oil (Guwahati, Koyali and Haldia), Bharat Petroleum Corp (Mumbai), Hindustan Petroleum Corp (Mumbai and Visakhapatnam), KRL (Kochi), BRPL (Assam), NRL, MRPL, ONGC (Tatipaka) and Reliance (Jamnagar) - have exceeded their planned target during the month under review, the statement said.

However, the crude throughput in Indian Oil's Barauni, Mathura, Digboi and Panipat, and CPCL's Manali refineries was less than the target.

Some of the reasons for shortfall in throughput were refinery shutdown, restricted crude processing due to less product evacuation, and advancement of planned shutdown in some cases, the statement said.
