Director (O), ONGC Videsh visits Russia to rekindle projects

Mr. P.K Rao, Director (Operations), ONGC Videsh visited Moscow and Tomsk of Russian Federation and reviewed the newly acquired Asset Vankorneft and Imperial Energy during 3rd to 5th August, 2016. He was accompanied by Mr. K.S. Pandey, Regional President- Russia Business Unit of ONGC Videsh. At Moscow, he met with Mr. Eric Maurice Liron; First Vice President of Rosneft, the major shareholder of JV Vankorneft. This was the first meeting of Director (Operations) with the top management of the company, post-acquisition and important critical issues were discussed to fine-tune the operational modalities of the Asset keeping in view the interest of ONGC Videsh. Vankorneft, with its current production of 440,000 bopd is the biggest contributor to ONGC Videsh production with our share of 15%.

The two days’ meeting with the top management of Imperial Energy at Tomsk was very fruitful, as the Asset is presently going through a phase of rejuvenation. Detailed project planning is more critical in view of harsh climatic conditions and limited logistic support to isolated fields.
