Oil & Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL), Pakistan’s largest exploration and production company, has discovered “significant” hydrocarbon reserves at Khewari block, located in the Khairpur district, Sindh.

The state-owned company shared the development in a notice to the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) on Monday.

“OGDCL is honoured to announce a significant gas-condensate discovery from its exploration efforts at Kharo-1, a well drilled in the Khewari exploration license area, located in District Khairpur, Sindh,” read the notice.

OGDCL shared that it operates the Khewari Block, holding a 95% working interest, with GHPL (Government Holdings Private Limited) as a joint venture partner holding a 5% working interest.

“The execution of drilling and testing operations for the Kharo-1 well structure, undertaken with the proprietary expertise of OGDCL, achieved a depth of 3,762 meters,” read the E&P notice.

“Subsequent testing procedures registered 14.3 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of gas, in addition to 93 barrels per day (bbls/d) of condensate. The results were attained at a 32/64-inch choke size, under a wellhead flowing pressure (WHFP) of 2,737 pounds per square inch (psi), emanating from the massive sand strata of the Lower Goru Formation,” it added.

OGDCL discovers hydrocarbon reserves in Sindh

OGDCL said that the latest discovery at Kharo-1 would significantly enhance the hydrocarbon reserves of the company and its esteemed joint venture partners, and ultimately contribute to the national energy resources of the country.

Last month, Government of Pakistan executed the Petroleum Concession Agreements (PCA) & Exploration Licences (EL) for eight blocks with four companies: United Energy Pakistan Limited (UEP), OGDCL, Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL), and Pakistan Oilfields Limited (POL).

As per details, OGDCL was granted license for blocks including Kotra East (Balochistan), Murradi (Sindh), Sehwan (Sindh) and Zindan-II (Punjab).

As per the company’s latest financial results, OGDCL registered net sales of Rs 120.141 billion during 1QFY24 which ended 30th September 2023. The company’s Profit before Taxation during the period was Rs 86.174 billion.

I request the Board and management of OGDC to provide significant employment to the population of Sindh and specially to the people residing nearby the site of discovery!
