ADAP drill site is around 5 KM from ONGC Tripura Asset base office opposite to Tripura University (Central University). Our Armco_1320UE Rig was deployed there for 3500 TD exploratory well. After production testing the well was declared as dry well. The Rig was moved from this site to a new development location before 10 days. The villagers of Suryamaninagar village of ADAP well requested through local MLA Sri Rajkumar Chowdhury to our Union leadership that they are not having any potable water facility in their village. They are having only hand tube wells and Ring wells. Villagers also requested to facilitate them with the barrack of security guards (TSR) for utilizing the same as village community center. The village is having 300 families.
