Oil India’s Khagorijan oil field commences operation

After almost 15 years, Oil India’s Khagorijan oil field started operation. Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma attended the ceremonial function of resumption of Khagorijan oil field of Oil India at Rohmoria in Dibrugarh district, operations of which were suspended since November 2007 due to administrative and environmental issues.

The oil field was discovered in November 1998 through drilling of exploratory well KGJ-1. Four wells were drilled in the area and production was started in December 2004. Khagorijan installation which was commissioned to produce the wells is only 1.8 Km away from river Brahmaputra. Due to severe river erosion in the banks of river Brahmaputra, various local organizations of Khagorijan area obstructed OIL’s operations in that area. Due to extended and prolonged blockade, OIL suspended all its operations since November 2007.

Sarma laid foundation stone of two schemes for protection of Rohmoria from flood and erosion under SDRF and SoPD worth Rs 17 crore. This includes scheme for restoration of flood damages by River Brahmaputra from Liting gaon to Rohmoria gaon and another scheme at Rohmoria from HS School to Borotichuk.
