DGH asks Reliance to drill more wells in D6

Our Bureau New Delhi | Updated on March 12, 2018

The Directorate-General of Hydrocarbons has directed Reliance Industries Ltd to re-work its D6 production strategy. Last week, DGH asked RIL to drill more wells in the D6 gas fields as part of the programme that includes spending on the fields for the current fiscal. RIL has suffered a drop in output from the D6 fields because of technical issues.

The company is producing 50 mscmd from the field. Sources told Business Line that “the DGH has asked the company to modify the work programme for the current fiscal. The company would be responding shortly.” The fall in output from RIL-operated D6 block is a cause for concern. RIL's output is from 18 wells. Apart from drilling two additional wells, the company needs to connect two drilled wells to the network.
