Government inaugurates onshore facilities of ONGC’s U-field in KG block in Andhra Pradesh

The government has inaugurated the onshore facilities of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation’s (ONGC) U-field at Odalarevu in Kona­seema district of Andhra Pradesh. U-field is part of ONGC’s flagship deep-water KG-DWN-98/2 cluster II development project in the Krishna-Godavari basin. It has a potential gas production capacity of around 3 million standard cubic metres of natural gas per day. Natural gas from the field will be brought to the onshore facility through undersea pipelin­es before being dispatched to users. The subsea structures for this project are being fabricated indigenously for the first time at the Kattupalli Yard in Chennai, which has proved to be a boon for the development of the do­mestic exploration and production ecosystem, alongside fuelling extensive skill development.
