MOL Pakistan Oil and Gas Company B.V and joint venture partner Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) have made two new onshore discoveries in Pakistan’s Tal Block.

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.

The Makori Deep-1 exploration well reached a total depth of 16,624 feet on April 17 and logged an output rate of 2,020 barrels of oil per day and 5.4 million cubic feet of gas per day during testing of the Lockhart-1 formation. This discovery will help to mitigate the energy crisis in Pakistan, according to a company statement.
