This monsoon, it's raining asset managers at ONGC except for a mini 'storm' brewing at Jorhat in Assam.

By August 1, GK Singha Roy will have taken charge as Tripura asset manager replacing SC Soni who retires end-July. On the same day HS Tiwari, currently Group General Manager at the Assam asset, will have taken charge at the Cambay asset, replacing Singha Roy who has been Cambay Asset manager since October 1, 2015.

"I have turned around the Cambay Asset," boasts Roy, when contacted. "Just like the Ahmedabad asset Cambay is now labelled 'excellent' and today it is profit-making." Working from Tripura state capital Agartala, Roy's daunting challenge will be to hit ONGC's production target of 5m cm/d.

At Cambay, Tiwari's equally ambitious challenge will be to hit ONGC's target of doubling production to 5600 b/d by 2022. In earlier transfers DMR Shekhar took charge at Rajahmundry on July 1 while PK Dileep became Ankleshwar head on June 28.

At Rajahmundry, Shekhar replaces Debasis Sanyal who retired on July 1. Shekhar's earlier role as Ankleshwar chief was in turn filled by Dileep, 58, a mechanical engineer who joined ONGC in 1982.

Earlier Group General Manager at the Bassein and Satellite fields in Mumbai, Dileep's earlier role was as team leader managing ONGC's first eastern offshore deepwater production in 2013. He's also worked in the Mumbai offshore, Rajahmundry and Assam.
