State-run Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has announced that it has made two gas discoveries. The company has found gas in the well GK-28-1 drilled in the Kutch offshore block-1 in western offshore, according to an ONGC statement here.
The well drilled to the depth of 1,550 metres floated 1.2 lakh cubic metres a day of gas during test. “The prospect is a fault closure and it is for the first time that gas is struck in reservoirs of Miocene age in Kutch offshore. This discovery has provided lead for exploration of similar plays in the area,” it said. ONGC said well Kammapalem-1 in KG onland block flowed gas with condensate at the rate of 1.01 lakh cubic metres a day and 2.4 cubic metres a day, respectively. The prospect is a four-way dip closure. The discovery is under assessment for its potential, the release said.
