ONGC's interntionl arm ONGC Videsh Ltd is lso likely to see rise in production and anlysts at MOFSL say that OVL’s medium-term production target is 15mmtoe , while its FY24 guidance is 11mmtoe. OVL may expand its asset base, but its acquisition strategy will focus on fields that are close to production commencement.
