India to invest $20 bln in deepwater fields


India is to invest $20 billion in gas fields in the next 5 to 7 years, according to its oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan.

The politician said the investment will be primarily in developing natural gas discoveries by state-owned ONGC and Reliance Industries joint venture with BP.

He said: «About $20 billion will be invested in next 5 to 7 years primarily in deepwater fields to augment gas production.

We are now expediting production of gas from domestic sources to the extent of 20 trillion cubic feet from already discovered sources through policy, fiscal and regulatory mechanism.

These fields and the current auctions of discovered small fields are going to add to the domestic supplies in the next 3 to 4 years.»

At the moment, ONGC is lining up $5.07 billion to produce more than 16 million standard cubic metre per day of natural gas from a set of discoveries in its Krishna Godavari basin.
