Mehsana Block

The Mehsana block located in Gujarat, India, has been a pivotal exploration and production site for Essar Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Limited (EOGEPL). The block was awarded to EOGEPL, a subsidiary company of Essar Exploration & Production Ltd., Mauritius (EEPLM), in July 1998.

From PSC signing to production

In 1998, EOGEPL signed a Production Sharing Contract (PSC) with the Government of India for the Mehsana block. In 2003, the company was granted a Petroleum Exploration License (PEL), allowing it to explore and extract hydrocarbon resources from the area. The production phase started in 2005, and since then, Mehsana has cumulatively produced over ~1,30,000 barrels of oil.

Strategic advantage for unconventional hydrocarbon exploration

Not just the conventional hydrocarbons, the company has perceived Mehsana’s broad and unwavering potential for Coal Bed Methane (CBM).

Besides this, the state of Gujarat has a well-connected gas pipeline network that is again a significant advantage for Mehasana Block. The support from state government and the uprightness of infrastructure makes Mehsana a prime destination for oil and gas exploration activities. Considering all this, EOGEPL is devoted to unboxing the vast potential that lies within this vital asset.

Unlocking Mehsana’s potential in a sustainable manner

By combining state-of-the-art technology and innovative techniques with deep consideration for the environment, EOGEPL is forging ahead for the exploration and production of hydrocarbons that is both profitable and sustainable. Through its unrelenting efforts, EOGEPL strives to revolutionise the gas industry, and steer the reduction of environmental hazards.
