Production of crude oil has begun from Bhagyam field, the second to start up in a complex developed by Cairn India and state-owned Oil & Natural Gas Corp. in Rajasthan, India (OGJ Online, Oct. 20, 2011).

The first field in the complex, Mangala, has reached its approved ceiling production rate of 125,000 b/d and is on polymer flood.

In a joint statement, Cairn, with 70% interest in project, and ONGC, 30%, said Bhagyam production will reach a plateau rate of 40,000 b/d.

When the third field in the development, Aishwariya, starts up, production from the complex is expected to reach an approved rate of 175,000 b/d.

The companies estimate recoverable resources at 1 billion bbl. Production from the complex flows through a 366-mile heated and insulated pipeline to Salaya, Gujarat.
