RIL, BP commence gas production from KG-D6 field
Shares of Reliance Industries (RIL) rallied nearly 1% on NSE after the oil-to-telecom conglomerate and BP Plc announced late on Friday the start of production from the R Cluster, ultra-deep-water gas field in block KG D6 off the east coast of India.
RIL and BP are developing three deepwater gas projects in block KG D6 – R Cluster, Satellites Cluster and MJ – which together are expected to meet 15% of India’s gas demand by 2023.
These projects will utilise the existing hub infrastructure in KG D6 block. RIL is the operator of KG D6 with a 66.67% participating interest and BP holds a 33.33% participating interest.
R Cluster is the first of the three projects to come onstream. The field is located about 60 kilometers from the existing KG D6 Control & Riser Platform (CRP) off the Kakinada coast and comprises a subsea production system tied back to CRP via a subsea pipeline.
Located at a water depth of greater than 2000 meters, it is the deepest offshore gas field in Asia, and the field is expected to reach plateau gas production of about 12.9 million standard cubic meters per day (mmscmd) in 2021.
These three new KG-D6 projects are expected to help meet significant portion of India’s energy demand and support its drive to shape, improve future energy mix.
