By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 23
-- India’s Oil & Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. has reported oil and gas discoveries onshore in the Krishna-Godavari and Cambay basins.

The company drilled the Vygreswaram Southwest-1 well to 4,600 m to explore a synrift Cretaceous sequence in the KG basin.

The well cut a 30-m gas column and flowed 2.6 MMcfd of gas and 19 b/d of condensate. ONGC said it further established the prospectivity of the Cretaceous Raghavapuram play towards the southwest of VG-1 in the north Pasarlapudi area.

ONGC noted that it has made deeper discoveries at Vygreswaram, South Mahadevpattanam, and Penugonda that have added 18.5 million tons of oil and gas in place in the KG onshore.

Similar efforts in the Assam and Assam-Arakan basins have resulted in discoveries at Disangmukh and Panidihing in the Paleocene to early Eocene Tura formation, and exploration continues over Lakwa field.

Meanwhile, ONGC said the Limbodra East-1 well in the Cambay basin is an oil discovery with 11 m of gross pay in the Eocene Tarapur formation but did not give a flow rate. It went to 680 m to explore Limbodra and Kalol potential.

ONGC noted that in the current year it drilled the GK-28-2 well offshore in the Kutch basin as that basin’s first oil discovery from the deeper Mesozoic section. That well had oil in the Late Cretaceous Mundra formation.
