RIL, BP commence production from MJ gas condensate field

The consortium of RIL and BP Exploration (Alpha) Limited (BP) has commenced natural gas production from its deepwater MJ gas condensate field at KG-DWN-98/3 (KG-D6) block, Bay of Bengal. The field will produce gas from eight wells and reach a peak gas production of around 12 million standard cubic metres per day (mscmd) gas and 25,000 barrels of condensate per day. Besides, the consortium will commence production from its deepest gas discovery using a floating storage production and offloading unit (FSPO) in the Bay of Bengal. The block also has oil deposits, which will be extracted at a later stage using the FSPO.
