State-owned Oil & Natural Gas Corp. of India has started production of natural gas from the BS-13 satellite field in its B-22 cluster project in Bassein oil and gas field in the Mumbai High area offshore western India.
The BS-13A-2H well began production at the rate of 200,000 standard cu m/day through a 32/64-in choke. It’s on a conventional, four-leg fixed jacket platform powered by a solar system and connected to the BPB process complex (OGJ Online, Jan. 24, 2011). The platform has four well slots.
ONGC estimates B-13 reserves at 1.7 billion cu m.
The B-22 cluster project combines development of marginal fields designated B-22, BS-12, BS-13, and B-149.
