Jura Spies Gas Shows at Kandra 4D in Pakistan

Jura Energy announced that the Kandra 4D exploration in Pakistan has been drilled to a total depth of 2229 m. The well targets three potential hydrocarbon-bearing zones, the Sui Main Limestone (600-750 m), the Lower Goru (1700-2000 m), and the Chiltan Limestone (2150-2250 m).

Natural gas shows were encountered during initial testing of the Chiltan Limestone zone. The Chiltan zone was acidized, which resulted in the production of water. The decision was then taken to plug off the Chiltan zone, and move uphole to commence testing of the Lower Goru, the primary target of the Kandra 4D well.

The Company and its partners will also consider a second Kandra well targeting the Chiltan Limestone zone, as seismic mapping indicates considerable potential.
