MARKET EYE-India's Reliance Industries gains on reserves hopes

* Shares in India's Reliance Industries Ltd gain 1.7
percent after its KG-D6 block partner Niko Resources Ltd
 said its proved reserves increased by 160 percent, and
that a recent gas discovery in the D6 block off India's east
coast could add significantly to future reserves.

percent stake. BP Plc holds 30 percent and Niko the rest.
* The Canadian oil and natural gas producer said in May it made
a significant gas discovery, along with its partners, in the
