Cairn has been pioneering technology in its fields across the country through partnerships with global technology leaders. Recently, the company entered into alliances with Halliburton Company and Baker Hughes to augment production from its Rajasthan fields, increase reserve base from offshore assets, and study the possibility of shale production in Lower Barmer Hills area. Cairn’s technology prowess can be seen across the country. The Mangala field in Rajasthan is home to a full-field Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) polymer project that is among the largest of its kind in the world, also, a large Alkaline Surfactant Polymer (ASP) project is currently under design to be executed in the next few years. The field also marks the starting point of the Mangala pipeline – the world’s longest continuously heated and insulated pipeline that carries crude from the fields of Rajasthan to the refineries of Gujarat. The Ravva field, India’s first offshore asset, is home to India’s first TCP balance under-perforating with multilane compilation technique, which has granted access to multiple reservoirs from the same bore, improving recovery and asset reservoir management.
