Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL) has let an engineering, procurement, and construction contract for a subsea production system for dry natural gas on Block KGD6 offshore eastern India to OneSubsea, a Schlumberger Ltd. company.

The EPC includes trees, subsea manifolds, control system, tie-in system, multiphase meters, intervention tooling, and testing equipment for R series (D34) fields. The contract also includes installation and commissioning for life-of-field services.

BP PLC and RIL are developing the R-Series deepwater gas fields on Block KGD6. The R-series is in more than 2,000 m of water about 70 km offshore. The fields will be developed as a subsea tieback to the existing control and riser platform (OGJ Online, June 15, 2017).

The project is expected to produce as much as 12 MMcfd of gas. It is expected to come on stream in 2020.

It’s the first of three planned projects on Block KGD6 that are expected to be developed in an integrated manner, producing from about 3 tcf of discovered gas resources.

Development of the three projects, with total investment of $6 billion, is expected to bring a total 1 bcfd of gas production on stream over 2020-22.
