The Nashpa #7 well, drilled to a depth of 15,079 feet (4,596 meters) to test the hydrocarbon potential of Datta and Shinawari formations, produced 2,700 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil and 7.4 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) of gas through a 36/64 inch choke at wellhead flowing pressure of 1,886 pounds per square inch guage (psig). OGDCL said the laying of a 1.16 mile (1.86 kilometer) pipeline has been completed and the well would be injected into the system within the week.

Meantime, the Nashpa #6 well, drilled to a depth of 16,486 feet (5,025 meters) to test the hydrocarbon potential of Kingriali, Datta, Shinawari, Samanasuk, Lumshiwal and Lokhart formations, successfully tested in the Lumshiwal and Lokhart formations. The zones produced 2,550 bpd of crude oil and 16.3 MMscf/d of gas through a 36/64 inch choke at wellhead flowing pressure of 2,667 psig. OGDCL is laying a 0.4 mile (0.7 kilometer) pipeline and the well would be injected into the system by mid-September.
