EDINBURGH -- Production from the Ravva field in the Krishna-Godavari Basin off eastern India has risen to 38,102 boe/d, according to operator Cairn India.

The upturn is due to improved well performance resulting from a program of workovers.

Cairn and its joint venture partners have completed a 4D seismic survey to identify bypassed oil zones in the field and to locate infill well locations. Drilling on these should start during the third quarter of the current financial year.

Elsewhere in the South Asia region, production from the Cairn-operated Sangu gas field offshore Bangladesh has been averaging 33 MMcf/d following a successful well intervention campaign in March and April.

Planning is under way for a further series of interventions in late 2010 to maintain production at current levels. Cairn is also pursuing operational efficiencies then field’s economic life to be extended.

Offshore Sri Lanka, in permit SL 2007-01-001, Cairn continues logistical preparations and detailed studies ahead of a three-well exploration campaign, planned to start in the first half of next year.
