OMV AG made a natural gas discovery with its Latif South-1 exploration well drilled in Pakistan’s Sindh Province, about 25 km south of Latif gas field. Wireline logging and testing operations confirmed the discovery flowed 2,500 boe/d of gas from Lower Goru Intra C sands. The company said further appraisal is needed to confirm the discovery’s size.
The Latif exploration license is owned jointly by OMV (Pakistan) Exploration GMBH 33.4%, Pakistan Petroleum Ltd. 33.3%, and Eni Pakistan Ltd. 33.3%. The discovery’s proximity to Latif field provides an opportunity to use nearby transmitting and processing facilities constructed in 2013, OMV said (OGJ Online, Dec. 6, 2013).
