India: ONGC tests gas off northeast coast

By OGJ editors

Oil & Natural Gas Corp. of India reported a deepwater natural gas discovery on NELP Block NEC-DWN-2002/2 offshore northeastern India near earlier discoveries (OGJ Online, July 25, 2007).

The MDW No. 13 well, drilled to 4,904 m TD in 1,171 m of water, encountered what ONGC described as “sands interesting from hydrocarbon point of view” in a middle to late Miocene section.

The state-owned oil company, operator with 100% interest in the block, conducted straddle packer open hole modular dynamic formation tests in five zones, all of which yielded gas.

The earlier discoveries were on blocks designated MN-OSN-2002/1 and MN-DWN-98/3.
