With a view to increase domestic production of oil and gas, Government has brought out Discovered Small Field (DSF) Policy for monetising the unmonetised or relinquished discoveries of Nomination and PSC regimes. These discoveries clustered in Contract Areas have been awarded under the new regime of Revenue Sharing Model.

Till date, two DSF Bid rounds have been conducted. 30 Contract Areas were awarded in DSF Round I and 23 in DSF Round II.

An amount of Rs. 12,826 crore has been spent by ONGC on the discoveries or fields identified in the first and second round of Discovered Small Field Policy. An amount of Rs. 224.27 crore has been spent by OIL in this regard.

The discoveries have been offered under Revenue Sharing Contracts where the operator will be sharing biddable percentage share of revenue to the Government, besides paying royalty. Actual revenue realization from the fields may vary based on development strategy adopted, actual production realized, techno-economics of the individual field and price of oil and gas, etc.
