Ajay Kalsi-promoted Focus Energy is on a major recruitment drive as it seeks to assess the prospectivity of its onshore Rajasthan block RJ-ON/6.

Focus wants to grow its workforce of 1400 people to nearly 2000 in the coming years. "Opportunities exist for 40 workers like roustabouts and rigmen at our Jaisalmer location on an urgent basis", confirms a Focus HR source.

On March 17, Focus also advertised for experienced HR personnel for its Gurgaon office to look after the planned recruitment drive. Separately, Focus received bids by March 15 in tenders to hire 1000-hp to 2000-hp rigs and has also invited EoIs for services supporting seismic, development and production activities, publishing a notice on its website on January 27.

Focus's 4026-km RJ-ON/6 block sits in close proximity to prolific gas discoveries in neighbouring Pakistan. Ring-fenced within the block is the 176-sq km SGL field.
