Cairn Oil & Gas, a Vedanta Ltd. unit, has won consent from the government to extend the Production Sharing Contract (PSC) for its Rajasthan block for ten years until May 2030. As published in a news daily – this contract extension will further boost CAPEX investment and encourage private players to enter the sector, the firm said.
“This extension will be a key determinant in our goal of doubling production, and help India achieve energy atmanirbharta. Home to prolific fields, the bloc demands extensive investment in technologies to enhance recovery. The field also carries potential for new explorations,” Mr. Prachur Sah, Deputy CEO, Cairn Oil & Gas said.
