KARACHI: Pakistan Petroleum Limited along with its joint venture partner Mari Petroleum Company Limited has announced the successful production testing of gas-condensate from a deeper reservoir at Adam X-1 exploration well, located in Sanghar district in Sindh. The potential of deeper reservoir of Lower Basal Sands (Lower Goru formation), at a depth of 3,450 meters was evaluated at Adam X-1 during May-June, 2013, says a press release issued on Tuesday. During testing, the well flowed 14.3 million cubic feet per day of gas and 125 barrels per day oil (condensate) at 40/64 inch choke. The well will be put on production immediately. These additional hydrocarbon reserves will reduce the gap between supply and demand of oil and gas during the current energy crisis in the country. PPL hopes to connect the gas fields to the national grid as soon as possible.
