The presence of hydrocarbons was proven through wireline logging and testing operations.

During testing, the well flowed 2,500 boed (15 MMscfd; gross) of gas from Lower Goru Intra C Sands. This discovery has opened up new exploration opportunities in the area. Further appraisal work is needed to confirm the size of the discovery.

The Latif South-1 exploration well is in the Sindh Province of Pakistan, around 25 km south of Latif gas field.

The discovery’s proximity to Latif field provides the opportunity of using the Latif facilities for transmitting the gas to nearby existing processing facilities. OMV (PAKISTAN) Exploration Gesellschaft m.b.H. holds a 33.4% share in the exploration license; its joint venture partners are Pakistan Petroleum Limited (33.3%) and Eni Pakistan (M) Limited (33.3%).
