As part of the MoU, EOGEPL would propose an initial list of research topics and provide data for the same to the industry experts and researchers of IIT Dhanbad while also giving them access to its CBM wells in Ranigunj for carrying out an investigation, research experiments. Essar and the IIT ISM would jointly pursue collaborative research as well.

EOGEPL’s Raniganj East CBM Block in West Bengal is a flagship asset and has already created a niche gas customer base who continue to depend on the supply of CBM gas to sustain their businesses. The block, connected with the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga pipeline of GAIL has already invested over Rs 4,000 crore towards drilling wells, setting up supply infrastructure and laying customer pipelines to Durgapur and nearby industrial areas.

Ranigunj has 1.1 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of certified CBM reserves. EOGEPL aims to double its reserve base in the next few years.
