Reliance Industries to drill a well in D-19
D-19 is one of the four satellite gas field whose optimised field development plan (OFDP) was approved in January this year, the DGH wrote.
"Approved OFDP envisaged eight development gas wells with a peak gas production level of 10.30 million standard cubic meters per day," it said.
