Reliance Industries and BP have begun production from their second deep water gas field in the KG D6 block.
RIL-BP’s ‘Satellite Cluster’ field has come onstream two months ahead of schedule despite Covid-19 challenges, the two companies said in a joint statement. The field will produce gas from four reservoirs, utilising a total of five wells and is expected to reach gas production of up to 6 (mmscmd).
The two firms have been developing three deep-water gas fields in KG D6 block—R Cluster, Satellite Cluster and MJ—which together are expected to produce around 30 mmscmd of natural gas by 2023.
R-Cluster started production in December 2020 and MJ is expected to come onstream in second half of 2022.
