Using the phenomenological model for production cross section (PMPC), the production cross sections for the synthesis of isotopes of superheavy element Og (Z = 118) using the fusion reactions 48Ca+249-254Cf 297-302Og, 45Sc+247,249Bk 292,294Og, 50Ti + 242-248,250Cm 292-298,300Og, 51V+241,243Am 292,294Og, 54Cr + 238-242,244Pu 292-296,298Og, 55Mn + 235-237Np 290-292Og, 58Fe + 232-236, 238U 290-294,296Og, 59Co + 231Pa 290Og, and 64Ni + 228-230,232Cm 292-294,296Og in evaporation channel have been systematically studied at energies near and above the Coulomb barrier. We have predicted most suitable projectile-target combinations for the synthesis of isotopes 290-302Og among these reactions. Our calculated evaporation residue (ER) cross section values for the reaction 48Ca + 249Cf 297Og is in excellent agreement with available experimental values. For the synthesis of Og, among all the reactions mentioned above, the 3n channel cross section (2458 fb) is larger for 48Ca + 251Cf 299Og; 4n channel cross section (212 fb) is larger for 48Ca + 252Cf 300Og and 5n channel cross section (34 fb) is larger for 48Ca + 253Cf 301Og. The second largest 3n channel cross section (1143 fb) is obtained for the reaction, 50Ti + 245Cm 295Og. Our studies will be useful for the future experiments to synthesize the isotopes of element Og which are not synthesized so far. We have also studied the effect of the use of mass values and shell correction of the Warsaw group which leads to a smaller ER cross section compared to the Moller group.
