RIL-BP to quadruple KG-D6 output
Having reversed the falling output at KG-D6, Reliance Industries and its partner BP plc will quadruple production at the eastern offshore fields to around 50 million standard cubic meters per day by 2020.
With addition of a well this month jacking up output by 2.5 mmscmd to 13.7 mmscmd, RIL-BP is repairing shut wells that will help further raise output to 16 mmscmd.
“At the end of 2013 we were producing around 11 mmscmd of gas. With the (well) interventions that we are doing right now and also the fact that the oilfield (the block) which is producing most of its oil and now we are getting ready to blow down the gas in that, ” BP India head Sashi Mukundan said.
