Reliance Industries made its seventh oil discovery in exploration Block CB-ONN-2003/1. The well CB10A-N1 on the Dhirubhai-50 prospect was drilled to a total depth of 5,180 feet (1,579 meters) in Part A of the block, with the objective of exploring the play fairway in the Miocene Basal Sand of Babaguru and the Oligocene of the Tarapur formations. The hydrocarbon-bearing zone was identified at a depth from 4,554 to 4,603 feet (1,388 to 1,403 meters) in the Miocene Basal Sand of the Babaguru formation. A production test was carried out at that depth, and the well flowed at a rate of 410 bopd. This discovery is expected to open more oil pool areas leading to better hydrocarbon potential within the block. RIL holds a 100% operating interest in the block.
