ONGC approves revised plan to invest in Cairn's Rajasthan fields    

The Board of Oil and Natural Gas Copr (ONGC) on Saturday approved the revised cost estimates for developing the nation's most prolific on-land oilfield in Rajasthan and agreed to invest around $350 million more in the fields operated by Cairn India.

The approval ends the uncertainty surrounding the development and the fields will now be put to production any time now.

ONGC, which holds 30 per cent interest in the fields, had previously withheld approval to Cairn's revised field development plan as the state-run firm's liability to pay royalty on the entire crude oil production, although it was only a 30 per cent shareholder, had turned the project economically unviable for it.

The board at its meeting approved the rise in cost of developing Mangala field in the Rajasthan block to $2.396 billion from $1.241 billion. Besides, the cost of smaller adjoining fields would also rise from $261 million to $275 million, a top company official said. ONGC will bear 30 per cent of this cost.
