D1/D3 in KG-D6 Block Shuts Down

D1/D3 in KG-D6 Block Shuts Down

D1/D3, India’s first deepwater gas field has ceased to produce on Monday after a 1 billion dollar investment and intervention by Reliance Industries and its partner BP Plc of UK.

The D1/D3 field located in the Bay of Bengal was India’s first deepwater gas field to be put on production in April 2009. Output peaked at over 61 million standard cubic meters per day in 2010, and has since gone downhill as sand and water ingress forced the wells to shut down one after the other. 

At its peak, it was the biggest gas field in India and in the last quarter, D1/D3 produced an average of just 1.5 mmscmd. Sources said that only three out if the 18 wells drilled on the field had remained in production and they too dried up on Monday.

Reliance had made 19 oil and gas discoveries in the Krishna Godavari basin. Out the 19, the D26/MA was the first field to begin production in September 2008. D1 and D3 fields went on-stream in April 2009.

The MA field cessation expected by September 2018 at its peak had produced 1, 08,418 tonnes of oil in May 2010. MA also started producing gas from April 2009 just when D1 and D6 went live.

The field set several global benchmarks in terms of deepwater operational performance. Reliance is the operator of KG-D6 block.
