Project Detail: According to MoEF sources, total mining lease area is 11 Sq. Kms. Present production rate of oil and gas is around 1500 BOPD and 50,000 Cu. mtrs/ day respectively. 94.712 hectares of forest land is involved. Water (50 cu. mtrs/ day) from the nearby river will be drawn during drilling activities. Waste generated from the KOF is mainly in the form of formation water and minor sludge. An effluent treatment plant (ETP) with treating capacity of 200 KLD is already operational in KOF. Power requirement will be met from the existing power house. KOF is equipped with 3 gas fired gensets (1×450 KVA and 2×180 KVA) and one diesel genset (1×170 KVA) to meet the power requirement. Forest clearance is to be obtained for 94.712 hectares forest land.
