RIL-BP JV shuts down D1/D3 gas fields in KG-D6 block

The joint venture (JV) of Reliance Industries (RIL) and BP has completed cessation of production at D1/D3 fields in the KG-D6 block. The fields were India’s first deepwater gas fields, which started production in April 2009. The fields were expected to cease production in 2015. But the company made specific investments to extend their lives.


The JV has successfully worked to extend the life of production from D1/D3 field, which otherwise will have ceased production in 2015 due to issues of reservoir pressure and water ingress.

The approved field development plan for Dhirubhai-1 and-3 had envisaged gas production of 80 mmscmd from the third year of commercial production, which was 2012-13.

When D1 and D3 fields in the KG-D6 block off the Andhra Pradesh coast went into production in 2009, it helped double the natural gas availability in the country. The fields started seeing a sharp dip in output in 2013.

Production fell from 60 mmscmd achieved in mid-2010 to 52-53 mmscmd, initially and in subsequent years went into single-digit output. The JV has so far produced an overall three trillion cu ft, resulting in energy import savings of over USD 30 billion.

For its other investment in the KG-D6 block, the JV has committed an additional USD five billion towards monetising three trillion cu ft equivalent reserves from three projects -- R cluster, Satellite cluster and MJ fields. These planned projects will utilise the existing gas production infrastructure. The first gas from these fields is expected in mid-2020.
