Oil and gas production from the Nashpa-11 well has begun, according to OGDCL

ISLAMABAD-The Nashpa-11 well in the district of Karak, KP Province, was successfully tested, finished and put into production on Tuesday, according to the Oil & Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL). This accomplishment demonstrates OGDCL’s dedication to supporting Pakistan’s energy sector and supplying the growing demands of both domestic consumers and commercial organisations.
OGDCL is assiduously pursuing a coordinated strategy for exploration, drilling, and development activities with an emphasis on quickly increasing output. The internal knowledge of OGDCL led to this development. Targeting the hydrocarbon potential in the Lumshiwal, Hangu, and Lockhart formations, the well was drilled to a depth of 4,485 metres. Currently, these formations are producing 1.0 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of gas and 830 barrels of oil per day (BPD) of oil through a 32/64″ choke at a wellhead running pressure of 520 PSI. By September 11, 2023, a 1.8 km flow line connecting the well to the OGDCL Nashpa plant was in place, and gas was being injected into the SNGPL network.
As the operator of this joint venture, OGDCL, with a stake of 56.45%, is involved. Government Holding Private Limited (GHPL), which owns a 15% stake in the partnership, and Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL), which holds a 28.55% stake, are also partners. It’s important to remember that the Nashpa structure’s initial discovery occurred in September 2009. Ten of the twelve drilled wells are currently producing, with a total output of 11,300 BPD of oil, 91 MMSCFD of gas and 395 MTD of LPG. The Nashpa-11 well adds significantly to the nation’s, OGDCL, PPL, and GHPL’s hydrocarbon resource base and promises significant savings through import substitution. To meet the rising demands of domestic consumers and industry, oil and gas output is being increased.
