OMV group gauges gas-condensate in Pakistan

A group led by OMV AG’s Pakistan subsidiary has gauged a gas-condensate discovery on the Mehar block in Sindh Province of Pakistan.

The Sofiya-2 well, 10 km north of Mehar gas-condensate field, tested at the rate of 18 MMscfd of gas plus 1,550 b/d of condensate through a 48/64-in. choke from the Lower Cretaceous-Paleogene Ranikot formation.

Appraisal is needed to prove the discovery’s size, but OMV has the opportunity to process the gas at the Mehar gas processing plant. Mehar field is at mechanical completion and expected to start up in the fourth quarter of 2013.

License interests are OMV Maurice Energy Ltd. 75%, Government Holding Pvt. Ltd. 5%, Ocean Pakistan Ltd. 15%, and Zaver Petroleum Co. 5%.

OMV Maurice Energy in 2011 acquired Petronas Carigali Pakistan Ltd., which gave OMV access to Mehar, Rehmat, and Saqib fields plus exploration blocks. At present, OMV holds interests in eight exploration blocks in Pakistan.
