BG’s renewable energy-powered platform produces first oil

BG Group said it achieved first oil production from the Mukta-B, a 4 legged Wellhead Unmanned Platform in the Bombay basin, offshore India, on July 1.

The Mukta-B and Mukta-A pipelines have also been successfully completed as part of the project, enabling a restart of production from the Mukta-A platform, which had been shut-in due to pipeline integrity issues for the last 2.5 years, the company said.

According to BG, the project clocked more than 2 million “LTI free” man-hours and has several firsts to its credit, including the use of green technology involving hybrid solar panels and wind turbines for self-sufficient power, remote monitoring facilities for process optimisation and VOIP protocol for better communication.

Shaleen Sharma, President & Managing Director, BG India said: “This is a significant milestone for BG India and the culmination of an integrated team effort by all functions and contract parties.”

Incremental development of the existing fields via well intervention and infill drilling campaigns, as well as evaluating new projects and further development opportunities, is being planned, BG said.

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