Compounding production woes at India's biggest gas field, Reliance Industries has projected a further 13 per cent drop in output from the Krishna Godavari basin fields, a trend that Mukesh Ambani firm hopes UK's BP Plc will help it fix.

Reliance has projected that gas output from Dhirubhai-1 and 3 (D1 and D3) gas fields in the block KG-DWN-98/3 (KG-D6), will be 38 million standard cubic meters a day in 2012-13 from current production level of 43-44 mmscmd, officials said.

D-26 or MA oilfield in the same block is expected to produce current levels of 8-9 mmscmd, taking the total output from the deep-sea area in Bay of Bengal to around 47 mmscmd.
