Jura Abandons Ismail-1 Exploration Well in Pakistan's Guddu Block

Canada-based Jura Energy Corporation (Jura) reported Tuesday that the exploration well, Ismail-1, in the onshore Guddu block in Pakistan's Central Indus Basin was drilled to the total depth of 2,707 feet (825 meters). The targeted Pirkoh Limestone formation was encountered at 2,297 feet (700 meters). Based on the interpretation of logs and the results of Modular Dynamic Tester, the formation is found to be water bearing. Consequently, the well is plugged and abandoned without testing.

Jura holds a 13.5 percent working interest in the Guddu Block, which is operated by Oil and Gas Development Company Limited.
