Pakistan Oilfields Limited has announced that according to MOL, which is the operator of the TAL block, hydrocarbons have been discovered at Makori Deep-02 well. It has been drilled and is currently in the testing phase.
TAL block is located in the Kohat Plateau, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
According to details, the Drill Stem Test (DST) reveals that it’s capable of 1,844 barrels of oil per day and 18.25 MMcf of gas per day at 32/64″ fixed choke size at the flowing wellhead pressure of 3,767 psi.
DST is a procedure for isolating and testing the surrounding geological formations through the drill stem. The test is a measurement of pressure at the drill stem and is used to obtain important fluid sampling information and to establish the probability of commercial production. Actual oil and gas production would be different as DST is only an estimate.
