NELPII - GS-01 BLOCK LOCATION
 

  • Located in the Saurashtra Basin offshore Mumbai
  • Production Sharing Contract awarded to Reliance and Hardy Consortium in July 2001
  • Discovery – B1 well targeted carbonates in the Miocene, Oligocene & Eocene formations
  • Dhirubhai 33 gas discovery (tested at 18.6 MMscfd and 415 stbd of condensate)
  • Declaration of commerciality adopted in 2011


The GS-01 exploration licence is located in the Gujarat- Saurashtra offshore basin off the west coast of India, north west of the prolific Bombay High oil field. The original licence encompassed 8,841 km2 (5,890 km2 post relinquishment) with water depths varying between 80 m and 150 m. The joint venture retained a 600 km2 area for future development activities by relinquishing the balance area of 5,290 km2. The joint venture has previously acquired 2,216 km2 of 3D seismic data. Upon completion of Phase I of the exploration programme the joint venture elected not to proceed to the second phase of exploration.

Operations
The GS-01 joint venture secured the Government of India’s approval for a Declaration of Commerciality proposal for the Dhirubhai 33 discovery (GS01-B1) (drilled in 2007) which flow-tested at a rate of 18.6 mmscfd gas with 415 bbld of condensate through a 56/64 inch choke at flowing tubing head pressure of 1,346 psi.

Outlook
The joint venture will commence work with the intention of submitting a detailed field development plan for the Dhirubhai 33 natural gas discovery prior to the end of the year.
