Pakistan Petroleum Finds Gas-Condensate at Adam X-1 Well

Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) announced that it has struck gas-condensate from a deep reservoir at Adam X-1 exploration well in Block 2568-13 in the Hala field, which is located in District Sanghar, Sindh, Pakistan.

PPL is the operator of Block 2568-13, with 65 percent working interest while its joint venture partner Mari Petroleum Company Limited has 35 percent interest.

“The potential of deeper reservoir of Lower Basal Sands (Lower Goru formation), at a depth of 11,319 feet (3,450 meters) was evaluated at Adam X-1 during May-June 2013. During testing, the well flowed 14.3 million cubic feet per day of gas and 125 barrels per day oil (condensate) at 40/64 inch choke," PPL said in a press release.

“The well will be put on production immediately. The additional hydrocarbon reserves will reduce the gap between supply and demand of oil and gas in the country during the current energy crisis,” the company added.

PPL operates 6 producing fields in Sui, Kandhkot, Adhi, Mazarani, Chachar and Hala - the first 2 wholly owned by the company - and has working interest in 13 partner-operated producing assets. Daily gas production from PPL-operated and partner-operated fields stands at around 1 billion cubic feet of gas per day, or about 24 percent of Pakistan’s total gas production.
