– Reliance Industries Ltd., Mumbai, has a fifth oil discovery on the two-part CB-ONN-2003/1 block in India’s Cambay basin 130 km southwest of Ahmedabad.

The CB10A-J1 well went to a TD of 1,957 m in Part A of the block and found hydrocarbons at 1,376-85.5 m in the Miocene Basal sand of the Babaguru formation. An interval at 1,376-81.5 m flowed at a rate of 255 b/d on a 6-mm bean with 180 psi flowing tubinghead pressure.

RIL said the discovery, named Dhirubhai-48, is of potential commercial interest. The company announced the fourth discovery about a month ago (OGJ Online, Apr. 28, 2010). It has identified several more prospects at various stratigraphic levels.
