Blowout in Gas Well of Oil India Limited at Baghjan, Tinsukia 7th August 2020


Environmental Impact Assessment

  • TERI Study on Air Quality & Noise Level: Recording of data at already installed analysers and sample collection for monitoring of air quality and noise levelare in progress.
  • TERI study on Bioremediation of Sludge: Site preparation, tilling and application of bio material in farmland, backyard of villager’s houses, nearby water bodies in the affected areas from Baghjan EPS side to blowout wellis in progress.
  • CSIR-NEIST Seismological Study: Seismological recording carried out by CSIR-NEIST has been completed. Geo-Physical monitoring activities carried out by CSIR- NEIST has also been completed. Data is being analysed for submission of final report.
  • IIT– Guwahati Study on Thermal Mapping & Sonic Measurement:Interpretation of the collected data will be carried out using specialized software at IIT Guwahati and the report will be submitted soon. 

Preparation for Capping the Well

  • Final Preparation for Capping Operation:All efforts are being taken to control the well at the earliest.
  • Assembling of 90ft AtheyWagon:Assembling ofAthey Wagon with newly fabricated Axle,modified Boom sections and with other accessories is in progress at site.After completion of assembling, load testing of the unit will be carried out.
  • Final Preparation for Killing Operation:Treatment of well killing fluid is under way.
  • Water Deluge System:5 nos.out 6 nos. of High Discharge CMT Water Pumps are operational at site for spraying water to the well head. One High Discharge CMT Pump is under servicing. All 08 nos. water transfer pumpsare operationaland are being used for filling water reservoirs periodically.

  • Blockade at Drilling/Workover Locations: Drilling and workover operation still continue to be affected due to forceful closure of operation at few of the locations.

Impact onOil/GasProduction due to Protests

  • Due to stoppage/blockades of several producing wells, there was production loss of 652 MT of Crude Oil and 1.55 MMSCM of Natural Gas as reported on 06-08-2020. Cumulative production loss since 27th May, 2020 due to bandhs and blockades: 23416 MT Crude oil, 55.63 MMSCM of natural gas.
