The company produced nearly 5 per cent less crude oil at 5.4 million tonnes in the quarter while natural gas output was 4.3 per cent lower at 5.3 billion cubic metres.

Of the oil production, ONGC produced 4.6 million tonnes from fields it operates and another 0.55 million tonnes from those in joint ventures with other partners. Own production was down 4.2 per cent and joint venture output fell 2.8 per cent.
