Production at BG Group‘s Panna-Mukta fields off the coast of western India remains suspended due to repair work on a damaged undersea platform.

BG said the repair work is progressing but did not set a date for the restart of production.

The leak, detected in a subsea hose near the Panna single buoy mooring, was plugged but the rest of the repair work was slowed down by weather conditions, BG added.

Production at the fields was suspended on 20 July after a leak in an undersea pipeline was detected, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The Panna-Mukta fields produce 35,000 barrels of oil and 205 million cubic feet of gas a day.

BG Group and Reliance Industries each own a 30% interest in the field while the remaining interest is owned by the state-run Oil & Natural Gas Corp.
