Aker Solutions is celebrating that first gas is flowing from the subsea wells of Reliance Industries' giant 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 one of the world's largest subsea contracts ever awarded, valued at USD 400 million, when it was signed in May 2006. Scope of supply for the project was a complete 18-well subsea production system, including 160 kilometres of steel tube umbilicals.

The KG-D6 field is located in the Bay of Bengal, offshore the east coast of India. The subsea production system is installed in water depths from 600 to 1200 metres.

"We congratulate Reliance Industries with another successful field development. KG-D6 was its first deepwater discovery so we are very pleased to have worked with them on this project," says Mads Andersen, executive vice president, Aker Solutions.

The gas from the KG-D6 development will be transported through pipelines to an onshore gas terminal located approximately 30 kilometres 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 first oil in September last year.

"The Bay of Bengal is a fast-growing oil and gas region and we are well positioned to play a leading part in its development," adds Andersen.

The KG-D6 project was managed out of Aker Solutions' headquarters in Oslo, Norway. The subsea equipment was manufactured at Tranby, Norway; Moss, Norway; Aberdeen, UK; and the hi-tech manufacturing centre in Port Klang, Malaysia.
