General information of the Block area


The North Karanpura coal field is the westernmost member of the Damodar valley coalfields. The Damodar Valley coalfield consists of several other coalfields out of which the block NK-CBM-2001/1 falls in North Karanpura Coalfield. The horseshoe-shaped block stretches across the Hazaribagh and Chatra districts of Jharkhand State of India.

The North Karanpura CBM Block (NK-CBM-2001/I) was awarded to ONGC-IOC Consortium. Based on the encouraging results of exploration activities, the consortium decided to enter into Development Phase for which the Field Development Plan has been approved by GoI. Prabha Energy Private Limited (PEPL) was selected as a strategic partner to undertake development of the block jointly.
