Project to be supported by Union Ministry of Earth Sciences

Efforts to locate oil in the Kerala-Konkan offshore basin may have failed so far, but the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) appears not about to give up. The Maharatna firm has entered into a collaboration with the Centre for Earth Science Studies (CESS) here for fluid inclusion studies that would help locate and tap the immense hydrocarbon reserves in the South Ratnagiri and Kerala-Konkan offshore basins.
