Mukta-B platform goes onstream offshore India

Offshore staff

READING, UK – BG India has produced first oil from the Mukta-B (MB) unmanned wellhead platform in the offshore Bombay basin.

BG has a 30% interest in the Panna-Mukta oil and gas fields, in partnership with ONGC and Reliance Industries.

As part of the project the MB and MA pipelines have also been completed, allowing a re-start of production from the MA platform which had been shut-in for more than two years due to pipeline integrity issues.

Facilities on the new platform include hybrid solar panels and wind turbines to ensure self-sufficiency in power, remote monitoring for process optimization, and a VOIP protocol for improved communication.

The partners plan further incremental development of the fields via well interventions and infill drilling.
