·Reliance and BP announced a new gas condensate discovery off the east coast of India in Cauvery basin. The discovery, in the deepwater block CY-DWN-2001/2 (CYD5), is situated 62 kilometers from the coast in Cauvery Basin and is the second gas discovery in the block. RIL is the operator with 70% equity and BP has a 30% share. Well CYIII-D5-S1 was drilled in a water depth of 1,743 meters, to a total depth of 5,731 meters, with the primary objective of exploring Mesozoic-aged reservoirs.
·In July 2013, Reliance has inked a MOU with ONGC to explore the possibility of sharing RIL’s infrastructural facility in the East Coast. In line with global practice of sharing infrastructure, the MoU aims at working out modalities for sharing of infrastructure, identifying additional requirements as well as firming up commercial terms.
·RIL and its partners BP and NIKO announced a significant gas and condensate discovery in the KG-D6 block off the eastern coast of India. The KG-D6-MJ1 well was drilled in a water depth of 1,024 metres - and to a total depth of 4,509 metres -to explore the prospectivity of a Mesozoic Synrift Clastic reservoir lying over 2,000 metres below the already producing reservoirs in the D1-D3 gas fields. The discovery, named ‘D55’, has been notified to Government of India and the Management Committee of the block. This discovery is expected to add to the hydrocarbon resources in the KG-D6 block. Appraisal will now commence to better define the scale and quality of the field.
