Reliance Industries gas KG-D6 fields output falls further
Gas production from KG-D6 in the week ended November 4 dropped to 25.11 mmscmd from about 26 mmscmd last month, according to an output status report filed by the company with the Oil Ministry here.
KG-D6, where water and sand ingress coupled with drop in pressure led to a drastic fall in per-well output, had produced about 33 mmscmd at the beginning of the fiscal in April.
Production from Dhirubhai-1 and 3, the largest among the 19 oil and gas finds RIL has made in the KG-DWN-98/3 or KG-D6 block, slipped to 20.06 mmscmd.
Together with 5.05 mmscmd output from MA oilfield in the same block, KG-D6 produced 25.11 mmsmcd during the week ending November 4, the report said.
The output is short of the planned 80 mmscmd of gas production for this time of the year.
D1&D3 output has fallen since hitting a peak of 55 mmscmd in August 2010 as RIL shut wells after wells due to high water and sand ingress.
Of the 18 wells on D1&D3, only 12 wells are in production as six wells (A2, A6, A10, B1, B2 and B13) were shut due to high water cut and sanding issues.
On the MA oil and gas field, so far six wells -- five oil producers and one gas injection cum gas producer -- have been drilled,
