“We are delighted to report this significant uplift in the OGIP for our Raniganj (South) block of upto 9.25 TCF, with an undiscounted value of $13.78 billion and a discounted value of $4.31 billion.  We believe that the shale gas resources can be explored and developed cost-effectively in tandem with our successful ongoing CBM development program through the sharing of surface and other infrastructure facilities. We are currently planning the initial exploration program for exploiting shale in our block, and will make a further announcement in due course when we commence the same. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to leap to the next level in the unconventional energy space. We continue to be confident and excited about the future of our Raniganj (South) block.
 
We commend the Government of India’s continuing transformational policies for the E&P sector; these will go a long way in attracting investments in the sector, thereby boosting India’s energy security and reducing our dependence on imports.”
