This is the fifth consecutive month of year-over-year production growth.
“The increase in gas production is due to contributions from the D-34 field of KG-DWN-98/3, which started from December 18, 2020 (and) satellite cluster wells (started from 25 April 2021) “, he said. .
Reliance is the operator of the KG-DWN-98/3 or KG-D6 block in the Krishna Godavari Basin, off the east coast.
The company began production from the second wave of discoveries in the block in December. D-34 or R-Series was the first domain to start, followed by Satellite Cluster.
R-Cluster’s maximum production will be 12.9 million standard cubic meters per day, according to operators.
Satellite fields would produce a maximum of 7 mmscmd. The MJ field in the same block will start producing in the third quarter of 2022 and will have a maximum production of 12 mmscmd.
Production of KG-D6 more than offset lower production from fields operated by the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC).
ONGC produced 5.6% less gas at 1.68 Gm3.
Production from privately-operated fields in the eastern offshore was 545.53 million cubic meters in June, up from 45.62 mmcm a year ago, according to the data.
It did not give a break on the ground.
India’s crude oil production in June fell 1.8 percent to 2.48 million tonnes, with state-owned companies ONGC and Oil India Ltd (OIL) producing less.
Oil refineries processed 5% more crude at 18.4 million tonnes in June compared to the period a year earlier, when economic activity nearly came to a halt due to a strict nationwide lockdown .
Private sector refiners produced 13.6% more crude at 6.9 million tonnes, while public sector refiners processed 2.7% less crude at 10.04 million tonnes.
Indeed, public sector refineries were operating at 85.71 percent of their capacity, while private refineries were operating at 94.76 percent.
Refineries produced 4 percent more fuel at 19.17 million tonnes in June. ANZ BAL
