Aker Solutions has announced that gas is now flowing from the subsea wells of the Reliance Industries D1/D3 field development located in the Krishna Godavari D6 (KG-D6) block.

Aker Solutions has delivered a complete subsea production system, including umbilicals, to the deepwater gas field.

The KG-D6 project was signed in May 2006 and was valued at USD400m (GBP270m).

Scope of supply for the project was a complete 18-well subsea production system, including 160km of steel tube umbilicals.

The KG-D6 field is located in the Bay of Bengal, off the east coast of India.

The subsea production system is installed in water depths ranging from 600m to 1,200m.

The gas from the KG-D6 development will be transported through pipelines to an onshore gas terminal located approximately 30km south of Kakinada on India’s east coast.

Aker Solutions has also set up a service base in Kakinada to provide life-of-field service support to both the KG-D6 and MA-D6 field developments.

The MA-D6 field produced its first oil in September last year.

The KG-D6 project was managed out of Aker Solutions’s headquarters in Oslo, Norway.

The subsea equipment was manufactured at Tranby, Norway; Moss, Norway; Aberdeen, UK; and the high-technology manufacturing centre in Port Klang, Malaysia.
