PGNiG to advance exploration in Poland after gas discovery

State-owned PGNiG SA plans intensification of exploratory work in southeastern Poland after discovering industrial gas flows from wells in the Debica and Ropczyce-Sedziszow districts in unconventional Miocene formations in Podkarpackie, Poland.

State-owned PGNiG SA plans intensification of exploratory work in southeastern Poland after discovering industrial gas flows from wells in the Debica and Ropczyce-Sedziszow districts in unconventional Miocene formations in Podkarpackie, Poland.

Gas flows from the methane-rich Sedziszow-38K and Korzeniowek-1K wells will reach 68,000 cu m/day and 22,000 cu m/day, respectively, after connection to production systems, PGNiG said.

Sedziszow-38K was drilled in the Nosowka license area. Korzeniowek-1K was drilled in the Mielec-Bojanow license area. PGNiG SA owns 100% interest in both licenses and conducts exploration independently.

Following geological data analysis, PGNiG will decide about further drilling in the license area. PGNiG subsidiary Geofizyka Torun is performing the largest 3D seismic visualization in Europe to date, comprising 350 sq km, to aid in exploring unconventional Miocene formations. The project will be completed in June.
