KARACHI: Pakistan Petroleum Limited the Operator of the Block 2568-18 (Gambat South) EL with 65% working interest along with its Joint Venture Partners Government Holdings Private Limited and Asia Resources Oil Limited (AROL) with 25% and 10% WI, respectively has made a Gas & Condensate Discovery at its exploration well Hadaf X-1 (ST) located in District Sanghar, Sindh Province.
Exploration well Hadaf X-1 (ST) was spudded-in on 29th August, 2018 and drilled to a depth of 3,700m to test the hydrocarbon potential of Massive Sands of Lower Goru Formation. Based on wireline logs, potential hydrocarbon bearing zones were identified inside target reservoirs. The Drill Stem Testing in the Massive Sand (Deep) of Lower Goru Formation flowed;
18.6 million cubic feet per day of gas, condensate of 160 barrels per day along with 65 barrels of water per day at Flowing Well Head Pressure of 1,307 psi on 56/64” choke.
12.1 million cubic feet per day of gas, condensate of 157 barrels per day along with 35 barrels of water per day at Flowing Well Head Pressure of 2,290 psi on 32/64” choke.
This discovery will add additional hydrocarbon reserves and also enable the energy sector to reduce the gap between supply and demand of oil and gas during the current energy crisis in the country.
