Cairn India seeks to triple gas production from RJ block

Cairn India Ltd. is seeking to triple natural gas production from the RJ block in Rajasthan by drilling a minimum of 42 wells in the next 3 years.

The company foresees gas production of 3 million cu m/day from the block, formally known as RJ-ON-90/1. Current capacity from 30 existing wells is 1 million cu m/day, Cairn said.

Fields in the RJ block include Raageshwari Deep Gas (RDG), Mangala, Bhagyam, and Aishwarya (OGJ Online, Mar. 25, 2013).

Cairn has filed a proposal with the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board for a 24-in., 194-km pipeline from the proposed RDG Terminal to the Gujarat Gas Grid. First gas from the RDG Terminal is expected in 2017, subject to approval of the pipeline.
