Reliance Industries and its partner BP Plc of the UK have brought a deepsea pipeline laying ship to their Bay of Bengal block KG-D6 to help bring newer gas finds to production by 2020-21, the British firm said.
Reliance-BP are targeting to bring to production the R-Series and satellite fields in KG-D6 block by 2020, just around the time KG-D6 block’s currently producing Dhirubhai-1 and 3 (D1 and D3) fields cease to produce. These fields along with the ultra deep MJ find are to produce 30-35 million standard cubic metres per day of peak natural gas.
McDermott’s DLV2000 vessel will install deepsea pipelines to connect the R-Series and satellite cluster discoveries to production system. “2019 will see work pick up speed, three projects on track to bring gas on shore,” BP India tweeted and attached a blog on DLV2000.
