The Talonj West-1 exploration well, which reached a total depth of 16,210 feet on April 24, flowed 13.1 million cubic feet per day of gas through a 32/64" choke during testing of the Lumshiwal Formation. Testing operations are still in progress at the well to ascertain the true potential of the discovery.

This discovery will help to mitigate the energy crisis in Pakistan, according to a company statement.
