RIL commences commercial production of Coal Bed Methane in Sohagpur

Reliance Industries (RIL) has commenced commercial production from its Coal Bed Methane (CBM) block SP (West)-CBM-2001/1 from March 24, 2017 and is currently supplying CBM for commissioning the Shahdol Phulpur Pipeline (SHPPL). The production from the company’s Sohagpur CBM fields will gradually ramp-up in the next 15-18 months making RIL among the largest unconventional natural gas producers in India.

CBM is an environmental friendly natural gas extracted from coal-bed and has become an important source of unconventional gas in many parts of the world.

RIL was awarded the licence to explore two adjacent CBM blocks SP(West) and SP(East) with an area of 995 sq.km in the Round 1 of CBM block bidding by the Government of India in 2001.
