The Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) on Thursday announced the discovery of oil and gas reserves from an exploratory well located in District Sanghar, Sindh, making its second discovery in the district within a week.
The company found the reserves in a well-named Kot Nawab-1 in Sindh’s Sanghar.
Kot Nawab-1 was spudded in on June 3, 2022, as an exploratory well by using OGDCL’s in-house expertise, it said.
According to details, the well was drilled down to 3,000 meters. Based on the results of wireline logs interpretation, Drill Stem Test-1 in the Basal Sand has tested 125 barrels of oil per day and 0.483 million standard cubic feet per day gas, and 400 barrels of water per day through a choke size 28/64” at well head flowing pressure of 150 pounds per square inch.
This is the eleventh discovery in the Sinjhoro Block, which shows the commitment of the Sinjhoro joint venture to “exploit the hydrocarbon potential of the block and aggressive exploration strategy,” the company said.
