10. Use of Photo voltaic solar panel for power back up at remote radioinstallations has resulted in saving of about 645.00 kWh of equivalent electrical energyduring the period.

III. Capital expenditure on energy conservation equipments:


(i) Efforts made towards technology absorption

a) Flow Assurance using downhole Injection through Injection Mandrelsand Liquid Flow Improver In order to overcome the wax deposition problem in the productiontubing of wells producing crude oil with high pour point high wax and asphaltene contentInjection Mandrels have been installed for flow assurance using downhole injection ofLiquid Flow Improver. The adoption of Injection Mandrel and the using the optimized dosesof meticulously developed Liquid Flow Improver has resulted in bringing down the pourpoint of crude oils and have helped in reducing mechanical scrapping of the productiontubing for removal of deposits in the production tubing.

b) Initiative to develop "Low-Temp" Demulsifier (LT-OSD) Aneffort to develop low-temperature demulsifier (LT-OSD) products has been initiated withthe objective to develop suitable OSD formulations that would give adequate waterseparation even if the curing temperature inside the Emulsion Treater (ET) vessels fallsdown to 45C due to various operational exigencies. The development of low-temperaturedemulsifier (LT-OSD) product shall help in adequate water separation even if the curingtemperature inside the Emulsion Treater (ET) vessels falls down to 45C due to variousoperational exigencies thereby improving the overall crude demulsification processsignificantly.

c) Development & Field Trials of Lemon Grass Essential Oil asBactericide An eco-friendly green chemistry based assessment of Lemon grass essential oilas an alternative to chemical based bactericides for control of corrosion causing SulphateReducing Bacteria was carried out successfully in one of the installations of OIL as partof the MoU for the year 2018-19. During the course of field trials application ofLemongrass essential oil has shown to inhibit the growth and proliferation of SRB underthe prevalent oilfield conditions.

d) Streamline Simulator & Compositional Simulator: StreamlineSimulator & Compositional Simulator have been successfully commissioned by the G&RDepartment which would help in optimising the ongoing waterflood and reservoir modellingof gas condensate reservoir and thereby enhancing recovery factor

e) High End PDC bit & Motorized Rotary Steerable System: High EndPDC bit & Motorized Rotary Steerable System has been introduced for Mizoram Project.

f) Distance to Bed Boundary Imaging (DBBI) Tool: Horizontal wells havebeen drilled with RSS LWD Real Time Monitoring System and Reservoir Navigation System(RNS) by introduction of Distance to Bed Boundary Imaging (DBBI) Tool in the Drain HoleSection. Data transmission to base office from MLU including mobile application has beenintroduced.

g) Wet Blending in Cementing job: "Wet blending process ofcementation" has been started for all in-house cementing jobs. The process yieldeduniform homogeneous slurry and cement bonds were found to have improved appreciably in thewells

h) High pressure stirring Autoclave: "High pressure stirringAutoclave" has been commissioned at Corrosion laboratory which can simulate in-situwell condition to study corrosion rates of oil field tubular and flow line with specialemphasis on corrosion inhibitor analysis performance evaluation of coatings corrosionstudies using weight loss coupons and so on.

i) Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS) – EOR Method: OIL hassuccessfully implemented India's 1st Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS)project in the Pilot well BGW–8 to establish its commercial viability in augmentingthe heavy oil production from the field. The pilot project is currently under testing infew more wells including Horizontal well.

j) Tri phased and 3 3/8'' TAG perforating guns: Tri phasedand 3 3/8'' TAG perforating guns have been introduced by Well LoggingDepartment. This has helped in maximizing the effective perforation geometry of awellbore.

k) RF safe detonators: RF safe detonators have been introduced by WellLogging Department. It allows normal rig operations such as RF communications weldingand cathodic protection to continue uninterrupted during perforating.

l) Upgradation of Tejas SDH Optical Equipment: Tejas Optical systemshave been upgraded to STM64 platform with Tejas TJ1400 equipment with four times bandwidthenhancement by Pipelines Department.

(ii) The benefits derived from the above

a) Flow Assurance using downhole Injection through Injection Mandrelsand Liquid Flow Improver has helped in sustaining production and has reduced scrappingfrequency in the wells producing high pour point oil.

b) The development of low-temperature demulsifier (LT-OSD) productshall help in adequate water separation even if the curing temperature inside the EmulsionTreater (ET) vessels falls down to 45C due to various operational exigencies therebyimproving the overall crude demulsification process significantly.

c) The successful field trial of plant based essential oil as abactericide to control bacteria encountered in the formation water handling systems in theOil and Gas Industry is likely to pave the way for induction of safe and greenbactericides like Lemongrass oil as part of the regular armoury of Oil Field Chemicals tosuccessfully manage corrosive bacteria in oilfield installations.

d) Commissioning of Streamline Simulator & Compositional Simulatorwould help in optimizing the ongoing water-flood and reservoir modeling of gas condensatereservoir and thereby enhancing recovery factor.

e) Commissioning of High End PDC bit & Motorized Rotary SteerableSystem will help in maintaining verticality and to maximize power to the bit for improvingROP in the hard and abrasive formations.

f) Introduction of Distance to Bed Boundary Imaging (DBBI) has enabledconstant monitoring and quick decision making.

g) "Wet blending of cementation" process yielded uniformhomogeneous slurry and cement bonds were found to have improved appreciably in the wells.

h) "High pressure stirring Autoclave" helps in simulatingin-situ well condition to study corrosion rates of oil field tubular and flow line.

i) The successful implementation of CSS-EOR method will help inexploitation of heavy & highly viscous oil of Baghewala field.

j) The use of Tri phased guns overcomes the problems associated withmulti-phase guns of the past that failed to account for the fact that the gun rested onthe low side of the casing. TAG perforating guns provided better reliability longerperforation range and deeper depth of penetration. TAG Guns have resulted in savingvaluable rig time by reducing the number of trips.

k) Use of RF Detonators has helped in continuing normal rig operationssuch as RF communications welding and cathodic protection to continue uninterruptedduring perforating.

l) Upgradation of Tejas Optical systems makes the Communication systemfuture ready and able to handle enhanced and complex configurational requirements ofSCADA video surveillance and other communication needs.
