The Field was discovered by ONGC in 1966. ONGC drilled 7 wells for the exploration and exploitation of Kalol pay zones viz. K-VIII, K-IX & X, out of which 3 wells were oil / gas bearing. The field was put on production using an EPS for a limited period during which ONGC had produced 35,064 barrels of oil.
The Oil Field block was awarded to SELAN Exploration Technology Limited under Pre NELP round, a Production Sharing Contract (PSC) was signed between Govt. of India (GoI) and SELAN in March 1995. SELAN is having the 100% ownership as an Operator in Bakrol Field.
Selan has actively developing this field since 1995 including acquisition and interpretation of 2-D and 3-D seismic data and drilling of 22 wells. The additional data and interpretations estimates the discovered Oil In-Place (IOIP) is 80.7 MMstb.
As on March 2017, there are 23 producing wells in the Bakrol Field and daily total production is about 600 barrels and 20,000 SCM of oil and gas per day respectively. Bakrol Field has produced nearly 2.09 MMbbls of crude oil and 73 MMscm of associated natural gas cumulatively after commencement of operations post taking over the block from ONGC in October 1995.
