OGDCL being the flagship carrier of E&P sector in Pakistan is focused on intensifying field development activities, completion of ongoing development projects and utilization of latest production techniques to augment oil and gas production volumes from its owned and operated joint venture fields. Pursuit to production optimization led the Company to achieve more than 50,000 barrels daily gross crude oil production.
Production department constantly endeavors to augment production levels to reach new heights by setting up of aggressive targets, enduring commitment by its professionals and applying latest Improved/ Enhanced Oil Recovery (I/EOR) techniques, pursuing industry best practices, strengthening surveillance techniques, enhancing in-house engineering design & simulation capabilities, utilization of state-of-the art automation systems and fostering use of information technology in order to curtail natural decline from producing fields and to enhance production by expediting connectivity of the new exploratory & development wells in the system.
Having 50 Operated Oil & Gas fields, geographically distributed all across the country; OGDCL has 18 Oil and Gas processing plants. These include Dehydration, LPG, Sulphur Recovery, H2S Removal, Gas Sweetening, Condensate Stabilization, Refining and Compression plants.
Petroleum Engineering & Facilities Engineering (PE&FD)
PE&FD has undergone from a support role of technical procurement to a fully functional independent engineering and field development department. Earlier, it had carried out OGDP I & II procurements under ADB loaning regime, but now it has embarked upon the engineering prequalification of materials, deisgn simulation review capability and FEED consultancy regime as well. Currently PE&FD is host to following working groups and sections:
1- Project & New Development activities section
2- Production facilities section
3- Petroleum Engineering section
4- Material & Budget section
5- Corrosion section
6- PDMS/Data Handling section
7- SCADA/ Telemetry section
8- Simulation section
In addition to these- in house working, PE&FD supports various OGDCL departments such as:
1- CE&SS for engineering and material support with contractors supervision at site.
2- Production operations support at field level through active engineering official/staff development for routine jobs.
3- QA/QC under inspection & supervision for Production Plant Assets
4- Joint venture under non-operated support for TCM/OCM approvals.
