DGH rejects RIL plea on KG-D6 reservoir complexity
RIL has drilled only 22 wells (18 gas producing well and four wells drilled but not connected or put on production) as against the 31 producing wells approved for drilling up to March 2012 in the field development plan (FDP).
"Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) under (Oil) Ministry has reported that the reasons for lower gas production from D1&D3 fields in the block KG-DWN-98/3 (KG-D6) may be attributed to drilling of less number of development wells (producers) as compared to that envisaged" in approved FDP, Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas R P N Singh told Rajya Sabha in reply to a question.
Further, gas output from D1&D3, largest among the 18 gas finds in the block that were put on production in April 2009, at less than half of the 70.38 million standard cubic meters per day was due to six out of 18 gas producing well ceasing to produce due to water loading/sand ingress in the wells.
ne oil/gas producing well in MA oilfield out of 6 oil/gas producing wells had ceased due to water loading.
"The contractor (RIL) has expressed inability to firm up appropriate drilling locations on plea of geological complexities. DGH has not agreed to the contractor's contention and asked the contractor to comply with the approved
