DSF Block



The DSF Block, awarded to AWEL in 2016 under the DSF-2016 bid rounds, consists of three fields located in the Mumbai Offshore Basin close to AWEL’s exploratory block MB-OSN-2005/2. The B-9 and B-7 fields are gas fields, whereas the BRC is predominantly an oil field. Three exploratory wells drilled in The B-9 Field have encountered gas in Daman formation. Wells B-9-1 and B-9-3 in particular flowed gas at rates greater than 10 MMscfd during initial testing. These encouraging results have prompted AWEL to commit to accelerated monetization of the B-9 field and continue to study and appraise the B-7 and BRC fields.
