India: ONGC tests gas in Tripura well

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Mar. 15
-- Oil & Natural Gas Corp. tested gas at a high rate during tests of well AD 30 on the northwest flank of the Agartala Dome in Tripura state in northeastern India.

The Assam-Arakan basin well, drilled to 3,515 m, flowed gas from one sand zone at the rate of 113,400 cu m/day on an 8-mm choke.

In a statement, the government-controlled company said, “The success of this well has opened up the intervening low area between Agartala and Konaban structures and also gives impetus to exploration of more such areas on the flanks of major structures on Tripura fold belt.”
