However, on August 18, 2007, the operator has submitted a fresh development plan for MA oil and gas discovery in the same block.

As per the estimates submitted by the operator, the development plan for MA oil and gas discovery is expected to increase the government revenues from earlier approved development plan of D-6 Block by approximately 1.6 billion (discounted by 10 per cent) from the revenue generated after recovery of contract costs on the basis of certain assumptions. The commercial production from D-6 block is expected to begin in mid-2008, Minister of State for Petroleum Dinshaw Patel said in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha.
