Resources Evaluation – MJ Discovery in the D6 Block in India
Deloitte has evaluated the contingent resources for the MJ Discovery in the D6 Block in India based on available information, including the drilling, testing and coring results of the MJ‐1 discovery well and the MJ‐A1, MJ‐A2, and MJA3 appraisal wells:
Deloitte’s best case estimate of gross unrisked contingent resources of 1.4 trillion cubic feet of equivalent (Tcfe) relates to the Central (North), Northern and Central (South) fault blocks that were drilled by the MJ‐1, MJ‐A1, and MJ‐A3 wells, based on an estimated areal extent of approximately 9.2 square miles (24 square kilometers), approximately twice the areal extent of the analogous MA field that is currently producing.
