ONGC has notified 7 discoveries in Q1 and total 8 so far in FY’17 (6 since last press release on 26.05.2016): (3 new prospect and 5 new pool discoveries).
Discoveries notified in Q1 2016:
New Prospect Discovery:
1. SU#2 (Suphyam#2) in Golaghat Nomination PEL, Golaghat district of Assam Arakan basin.
Exploratory well SU#2 (Suphyam#2) in Golaghat Nomination PEL, Golaghat district of Assam Arakan basin was drilled to a depth of 3218m. A sandstone interval (2310 - 2306 m) of Bokabil formation of Miocene age on conventional testing flowed oil and gas @ 38.4 m3/day and 14747 m3/day respectively through 6 mm bean.
This new prospect discovery opens up the area between existing fields Kasomarigaon in the north and Uriamghat in the south for exploration of Bokabil play.
New pool Discoveries:
2. NR#12 (NRAF) in Nambar PML of Golaghat district in Assam & Assam Arakan Basin.
Exploratory well NR#12 (Nambar#12) in Nambar PML in Golaghat district of Assam Arakan basin was drilled to a depth of 2,698m. Sandstone interval (2578 – 2576 and 2574.5 - 2572 m) of Sylhet formation of Eocene age on conventional testing flowed gas @ 66,533 m3/day with condensate @ 1.68 m3/day through 6 mm bean.
This discovery further consolidates the hydrocarbon potential of the Khoraghat Nambar area.
3. Dahej#20 (DJAT) in South Dahej PML of Cambay onland Basin.
Exploratory well Dahej#20 in South Dahej PML of Cambay onland Basin was drilled as an L profile well to a measured depth of 3785 m (True Vertical depth 2982.65m). A sandstone interval (3600 – 3596.5 m) in Dahej Sands of Hazad Member of Eocene age on conventional testing flowed gas @ 71,700 m3/day with condensate @ 38.32 m3/day through 6 mm bean. This discovery, the new gas condensate pool indicates further exploration potential towards south of Dahej Field.
4. Nadiad # 4 (NDDA) in Nadiad PML (NELP block CB-ONN-2001/1) of Cambay onland Basin.
Development well Nadiad # 4 (NDDA) in Nadiad PML (NELP block CB-ONN-2001/1) of Cambay onland Basin was drilled as a L profile well to a measured depth of 1,727 m (True Vertical depth 1545m). A sandstone interval (1618 - 1613 m) in Younger Cambay Shale (YCS) of Middle Eocene age on testing, after hydro-fracturing, flowed oil @ 9 m3/day through 4 mm bean. This new pool adds to the production potential of the Nadiad PML in the NELP block.
5. MBSO51NAA#2 in NELP block MB-OSN-2005/1 in Saurastra offshore of Mumbai offshore basin.
Exploratory well MBSO51NAA#2 in NELP block MB-OSN-2005/1 was drilled in Saurastra offshore of Mumbai offshore basin to a depth of 2505 m. A sandstone interval (2462 – 2465.5 m) in Daman Sands of Oligocene age on conventional testing flowed gas @ 95275 m3/day with condensate @ 72 bbls/day through 3/8” choke.
This discovery, adds to the gas established in the two earlier discoveries in this NELP block in the vicinity of GK-28/42 and other Tertiary discoveries made in nearby NELP blocks.
Discoveries notified so far in Q2 2016:
1. Kesanapalli West Deep#1 (KWD-AA) in Adavipalem-Ponnamanda PML of KG Onland basin in the State of Andhra Pradesh.
Exploratory well Kesanapalli West Deep#1 in Adavipalem-Ponnamanda nomination PML of KG Onland basin was drilled to a depth of 3,597 m.
A sandstone interval (2,899 – 2,908 m) in Vadaparu formation of Eocene age on conventional testing flowed oil and gas @ 176 m3/day and 33,571 m3/day respectively through 6 mm bean.
This deeper play discovery, in producing field Kesanapalli West, with excellent flow rates, immediately augments the production from the PML and further consolidates the potential of Vadaparu formation.
