DOMESTIC OPERATIONS : KG-D6
The KG-D6 field produced 0.9 million barrels of crude oil, and 104.40 BCF of natural gas, which was lower by 36.7% and 33.1% respectively over the previous period. The reduction in production was due to reservoir complexity and natural decline. Production of gas condensate was 0.1 million barrels, reduction of 30.6% over the previous period.
As compared to Q4 FY12, the decrease in oil production by 17 %, in gas production by 9% and in condensate production by 1% was due to a reduction is reservoir pressure associated with production from the field.
Production from KG-D6 has resulted in cumulative sales of 1,869 BCF (52.92 BCM) since start of production while sales for 1Q FY 12-13 was about 103.35 BCF (2.93 BCM).
Significant efforts towards augmenting production from KG D6 have been undertaken during the quarter.
For KG-D6, RIL is planning to submit Revised Field Development Plan (RFDP) for D1-D3 which is aimed at maximizing gas recovery from the existing fields. It also plans to further pursue approval of
RFDP of D 26 (MA) submitted in the earlier quarter. Further, to expedite the development projects of other discoveries, RIL is preparing development plan(s) based on an integrated concept which is planned for submission in 3Q FY13.
RIL has also commenced pre-development activities in the D6 block which includes Engineering Surveys i.e. Geophysical Surveys & Geotechnical Investigations and Conceptual Engineering and FEED.
