In 2002, Reliance struck gas in the D1-D3 field of KG D6 block. These fields were put on production in 2009.
The KG D6 fields rank amongst one of the largest green-field deepwater oil and gas production facilities in the world. These fields were the first deepwater producing fields in India and remains among the most complex reservoirs in the world. Reliance, along with its partners, has committed ~$6 Billion for second wave of projects in KG D6 over the next few years. To supplement the existing asset base, we continue to look at new opportunities that are a strategic fit with capabilities and integrated petroleum value chain.
In December, 2020, gas production was started from the R Cluster field in Block KG D6. This is India’s first ultra-deepwater field and Asia’s deepest offshore gas field. In April 2021, gas production was started from Satellite Cluster field in Block KG D6.
Coal Bed Methane
Production from the CBM blocks (Sohagpur East and West) commenced in 2017. As part of CBM development program, Reliance has drilled ~ 300 wells and set up three Gas Gathering Stations.
Reliance Gas Pipeline Limited (RGPL), one of the subsidiaries of RIL operates 300 KM of natural gas pipeline from Shahdol in Madhya Pradesh to Phulpur in Uttar Pradesh to transport gas from RIL’s CBM blocks.
The CBM project is the largest surface footprint hydrocarbon project of the country.
