7/19/2016

KARACHI, Pakistan -- Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL)—operator of the Gambat South Block with a 65% working interest—along with its joint venture partners, Government Holdings Private Limited (25%) and Asia Resources Oil Limited (10%), has announced a gas discovery at the Hadi X-1A exploration well in District Sanghar, Sindh.

Hadi X-1A was spud on Feb. 5, 2016, and reached the final depth of 4,020 m on April 19. Based on wireline logs, potential hydrocarbon bearing zones were identified in the Sembar formation.

During initial testing in the formation, a very small amount of gas flowed at the surface for three days and the reservoir appeared to be tight. To further evaluate tight gas potential, a frac job was conducted after which the flowrate improved significantly. The well flowed at 0.85 MMscfgd on a 32/64 in. choke, thus confirming the presence of natural gas.

According to PPL, further evaluation is required to determine the size and commerciality of the discovery.
