Essar Exploration & Production holds conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon assets with a geographically diversified portfolio. Its commitment to greener fuels such as coal bed methane has seen it become the first Indian E&P company to achieve over 1 MMSCMD of production. Its capacity to scale – 12 TCF of coal bed methane with 500+ wells – has made it a pioneer in the context of the country’s diversified energy security.

In alignment with Essar’s vision to accelerate a decarbonised future, the company also plans to ramp up on shale gas capabilities. It will continue to diversify in terms of both – geography and resources – to arrive at such assets.
