The Modhera field is situated about 30 km southwest of Mehsana city in Gujarat. It was discovered by ONGC in 1982 but not put on production due to uneconomical quantity of production. The field was awarded to M/s Interlink Petroleum Limited (IPL) under Small and marginal field bid round in 1994. The total field area is 12.7 sq. km.
Modhera structure is an anticline having an N-S axis. The Kalol formation of the Middle Eocene age hosts the reservoir rock in the Modhera field. The API gravity of Modhera oil is 13.2 degrees. M/s IPL produced gas from the field for about two years and then carried out further G & G data acquisition in the form of 3D API and drilled one appraisal cum exploratory well. The well indicated presence of heavy oil of the API gravity 13 degree. M/s IPL applied all possible conventional heavy oil production techniques for oil production without any success.
SunPetro acquired 100% participating interest in the Baola field from Interlink Petroleum Limited (IPL) in 2016. SunPetro has screened many world-wide available new technologies to produce heavy oil from the Baola field. SunPetro, finally selected and implemented Ukrainian Multistage Physico Chemical treatment (MPCT) Technology, which has resulted in the start of oil production from the field. In addition, SunPetro has also drilled one more development well and put it on production. With the implementation of many more innovative techniques by SunPetro, the field is currently producing about 6-10 bopd.
