The area is placed approximately 60 km from the existing onshore terminal at Kakinada on the east coast of India in water depths of as much as 1850 meters.
The field will produce gas from four reservoirs utilising a complete of five wells and is anticipated to attain gasoline manufacturing of up to 6 mmscmd. Together, the R Cluster and Satellite Cluster are predicted to contribute to about 20% of India’s contemporary fuel manufacturing. The third KG D6 improvement, MJ, is predicted to come onstream in the direction of the latter half of of 2022.
