Developed with an investment of over 41,000 crore rupees, the KG-DWN 98/2 Deepwater Oil Field M in Krishna Godavari Basin is one of the most technologically complex projects. Total envisaged peak gas production and oil production from the Project is about 10 MMSCMD (Million Standard Cubic Meters per Day) 45,000 BOPD (Barrels of Oil per day).

ONGC had all subsea structures fabricated by Indian manufacturers at Kattupalli, in line with the Prime Minister's vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat.

Note to Editors:

The extraction of ‘First Oil’ from KG Basin marks a historic achievement in India's energy sector, promising to significantly reduce our dependence on energy imports. The project also heralds a new era in India's energy sector, promising to bolster energy security and foster economic resilience.

During its life cycle, the Project KG-DWN-98/2 Cluster-II will add a total of 30.5 BCM (Billion Cubic Meter) of Gas and 14.24 MMT (Million Tons) of oil to the Indian domestic oil and gas production. This will help the Government of India to reduce the dependency on crude and LNG import.
