HOUSTON, May 4 -- OMV AG has made a natural gas discovery with its Latif North-1 well on the Latif exploration license in Pakistan’s Sindh province.
The well tested at 44.7 MMscfd of gas from Cretaceous Lower Goru at 3,350 m. It is the best-performing Latif well to date, OMV said.
Latif North-1 is 3 km north of Latif gas field, which is producing a combined 29 MMscfd of gas from the Latif-1 discovery well drilled in 2007 and Latif-2 drilled in 2008. The gas is processed at the OMV-operated Kadanwari processing plant.
Latif North-1 test results indicate a substantial increase of recoverable gas reserves, OMF said. Based on this encouraging result, it said, the field development plan will include the drilling of more wells.
OMV operates more than 525 MMscfd of gas production in Pakistan, of which its net share is 101 MMscfd. It operates Sawan, Miano, Tajjal, and Latif fields and the Sawan and Kadanwari processing plants.
