Panel to probe output delay from ONGCs Krishna-Godavari block
The oil ministry has set up an enquiry committee headed by Director General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) to investigate the inordinate delay in production from ONGC's Krishna-Godavari block. Apart from the DGH, the three-member committee will have the financial advisor and a director in the ministry. In a letter to ONGC, the committee has directed ONGC to explain the delay in production from the block. ONGC will now have to submit a chronology of events in the block. ONGC has faced widespread criticism for not producing any gas from this block in many years. Reliance, which operates the adjoining KG-D6 block, has produced natural gas from its deep-sea field for five years.
