Cairn (India)

Cairn is a Superbrand.

Cairn was rated as the fastest-growing 
energy company in the world in 2012
 and 2013 by Platts and is, today, one
of the largest independent oil and gas 
exploration and production companies 
in India.

Having commenced operations two 
decades ago as a 3000 barrels of 
oil per day company, Cairn has grown from 
very humble origins. The Mangala oil 
discovery in Rajasthan was a game 
changer for Cairn India and was recognised 
to be one of the largest onshore oil discoveries 
in the country.

Currently the Company operates almost 
30% of India’s domestic crude oil production 
and has opened 4 frontier basins with over 
40 discoveries tol date. Today, the Rajasthan 
block produces almost 25% of the nation’s 
crude oil and saves close to 8 billion US dollars of 
forex each year on oil import costs.

Cairn has a portfolio of 9 blocks, three of 
which—Rajasthan, Ravva and Cambay —
are producing assets with total production 
of over 224,000 
barrels of oil per day.

Historically, Cairn India has been a pioneer 
in the application of innovative technologies. 
These play an important role in discovering 
oil and gas and maximizing recovery from 
reservoirs. Ravva is a fine example having 
produced more than double its initial estimates.

From building the world’s longest continuously 
heated and insulated crude oil pipeline to the 
implementation of one of the largest polymer 
flood enhanced oil recovery projects in the world 
Cairn has been a first mover in India for deploying 
numerous other innovative technologies

Cairn India stands for innovative thinking 
and a can-do attitude. Today it is a world- 
class exploration and production company 
with an established and sustainable portfolio.

With world-class assets, a strong balance 
sheet and an ambitious capital expenditure 
programme driven by a highly skilled and 
dedicated workforce, Cairn India remains well 
positioned as a trusted provider of future 
energy supply for the nation
