Jandran is a old field discovered in 1975, 1994 and now in 2021. Is it a commercial discovery or will sit as a it is in papers. If it is a bid discovery than what are its development options as the previous discoveries were of no use as far its commercialization was concerned. The gas infrastructure is almost 200 Kms away and is uneconomical to lay a pipeline for 20 MMCFD gas available for 8-10 years.
