NEW DELHI: Nov 16, 2012, 12.08PM IST The government has approved Reliance Industries' plan to start drilling for developing a new area in KG-D6, the first major decision after Veerappa Moily took charge at the oil ministry late last month.

The decision is seen as a shot in the arm for exploration companies, particularly Reliance Industries that has waited for three years to develop new fields in the D6 block, where output from the existing D1 and D3 fields has fallen drastically.
