ONGC rapped for making "frivolous     allegations"

Rebuking ONGC for making “frivolous allegations” against the government, the Petroleum Ministry has told Delhi High Court that the firm woke up from its slumber to allege that its gas may be flowing out of wells of Reliance Industries’ KG-D6 fields.

ONGC had on May 15 filed a petition in Delhi High Court alleging that RIL may have drawn natural gas worth thousands of crores of rupees from its fields next to Mukesh Ambani-run firm's KG-D6 block in Krishna Godavari basin.

The government as well as Oil Ministry's technical arm DGH were made respondents.
The Ministry in a counter affidavit filed last week stated that ONGC "never raised any issue on connectivity of reservoirs/channels" ever since it was granted mining lease of the Godavari PML Block (G-4) in 2008 and even when RIL started production from KG-D6 in April 2009.
