DELHI – ONGC has discovered gas in the shallow offshore KG Basin offshore eastern India, in the IF PEKL block.
Well GS-KV-1 was drilled to a depth of 2,908 m (9,540 ft), producing gas from at the rate of 82 MMcf/d from the interval 2,698-2,696 m (8,851-8,845 ft). It also flowed small quantities of condensate.
The prospect is 3 km (1.8 mi) from the Amalapuram coastline in a water depth of 8 m (26 ft). ONGC says the development of the shallow water area is in the conceptual stage, the aim being a cluster-based approach of development and production.
Discovery of gas in sands within the two reservoir intervals developed in the Ravva Formation has established hydrocarbon prospectivity further east-south-east and west-south-west of the Kesavadasupalem and Kesanapalli West fields.
