Hindustan Oil Exploration Company (HOEC) has commenced the first commercial gas sale from Dirok gas field in Assam. HOEC, on behalf of its joint venture with Oil India and Indian Oil Corporation, is developing facilities at Dirok field that can handle 36 million standard cubic feet of gas per day and over 1,000 barrels of condensate per day.

The company, during its recent annual general meeting, had said the first gas sale from the field in Tinsukia district commenced from August 25, and that the project has been completed within 27 months on fast-track mode with due approval of appropriate authorities.

The company is planning to ramp up production to full capacity over the next six months. At full capacity, the Dirok field will contribute over 12 per cent of the total gas produced in Assam, which will help fulfil more than 50 per cent of the current gas shortage in the state.
