The crude oil production rose in August 2015 to 31.93 lakh tonne, a rise of 5.6% on year-on-year basis. However, the increase was marginal as compared to July 2015 production even as the yield was more than the target. The natural gas production, on the other hand, was lower than the target. The production in August 2015, however, improved slightly to 2,836 million cubic metre from 2,736 million cubic metre in August 2014 and 2,619 million cubic metre in July 2015, according to provisional data of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas.
