New Delhi: Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL) is likely to begin selling natural gas from its eastern offshore KG-D6 field by March-end or early April, a company source said on Tuesday.
“We should start gas production by the first week of March. The initial volume would go for testing and building pressure in the pipeline. The first sale may happen by March- end or early April,” the source said.
RIL will sell the initial volumes to gas-based urea manufacturing plant and Dabhol power project. Other power generation plants would get gas once the entire requirement of fertilizer sector is met.
