New Delhi : With output from Reliance Industries’ KG-D6 fields hitting a new low, the Oil Ministry has ordered the Mukesh Ambani-run firm to divert a part of gas allocated to Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers (RCF) to private power plants in Andhra Pradesh, reports PTI.

The ministry on May 31 ordered that a part of 2.1 million standard cubic metres per day of KG-D6 gas allocated to RCF’s Thal urea manufacturing plant be diverted to Hyderabad-based Bhagaynagar Gas Ltd (BGL) and power plants in Andhra Pradesh under a so-called gas swapping arrangement.

Under this, state-owned gas firm GAIL India Ltd will make good the shortfall at Thal by supplying imported liquefied natural gas (LNG), sources privy to the development said.
