Government says no gas from KG-D6 going to Bangladesh
No gas from Reliance Industries (RIL) consortium's KG-D6 block in the eastern offshore is being supplied to Bangladesh, the government said Wednesday.
"The gas produced from KG-DWN-98/3 (KG-D6) block in eastern offshore is being sold domestically in India as per the allocation made by the government and no gas is being supplied to Bangladesh from this block," Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply.
He said the Production Sharing Contract for KG-D6 with RIL states that "the Indian domestic market shall have the first call on the utilisation of natural gas discovered and produced from the contract area."
While campaigning for the general elections, the Aam Aadmi Party had alleged that RIL's partner Niko Resources was selling KG-D6 gas in Bangladesh for half the $4.2 per unit rate that India pays them.
