MPCL discovers gas reserves in Sindh

Mari Petroleum Company Limited (MPCL) has made a gas discovery at its exploratory well in Sindh, the company informed on Monday.

In its filing to the bourse, MCL said that the discovery at Hilal-1, drilled in Mari D&P Lease Area, located in Daharki, District Ghotki, Sindh.

Hilal-1 was spud-in on April 21, 2020 and drilled down to the depth of 1,202m into Sui Main Limestone (SML). The well was drilled with the objective to test the hydrocarbon potentials of SML and Sui Upper Limestone (SUL).

The company said that the Drill Stem Tests (DSTs) carried out in SUL Formation flowed gas at a rate of 11 MMSCFD at wellhead flow pressure (WHFP) of 887 Psi at 48/64 inch choke size after acid job. While DSTs carried out in SML Formation also successfully flowed 6.88 MMSCFD of gas with 132 barrels per day of water at WHFP of 804 Psi at 40/64 inch choke size subsequent to acid job.

It is highlighted that this is the fifth consecutive new discovery in Mari D&P Lease Area based on 1,079 sq.km carpet 3D seismic survey of the area in 2015, which was followed by an extensive drilling program.

Last week, MOL one of the country’s leading oil and gas exploration and production company discovered oil and gas reserves in Kohat region, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
