Cairn India Unlocks First Gas Offshore Sri Lanka

Cairn India Limited’s subsidiary, Cairn Lanka Limited, has made a gas discovery in the CLPL-Dorado-91H/1z well in the Mannar Basin, Sri Lanka.

The well encountered a gross 82-foot (25-meter) hydrocarbon column in sandstone at depths between 9,986 to 10,068 feet (3,043.8 to 3,068.7 meters) MD. The operator said this information was interpreted from log and MDT data, showing the hydrocarbons are predominantly gas bearing with some additional liquid hydrocarbon potential. Additional drilling is required to determine the commerciality of the discovery.

The CLPL-Dorado-91H/1z well is the first well drilled in Sri Lanka in 30 years and the first well to discovery hydrocarbons in the country. The discovery is located in a water depth of 4,413 feet (1,345 meters) in Block SL 2007-01-001. Cairn Lanka Limited wholly owns and operates the block.
