Source: Jubilant Energy

Jubilant Energy has commenced drilling operations at the KPL-DX exploration well in the southern part of the Kharsang field onshore India. The well is targeting the hydrocarbon potential of the lower Girujan and deeper reservoirs. 

The well is located 458 meters from the existing well pad, KSG-29 to the South-South West, and will be drilled to a total depth of around 2,800 meters True Vertical Depth. The well is expected to take two months to complete and the estimated cost is approximately US $5.7 million. 

The lower Girujan formation underlies the producing upper Girujan reservoirs and is expected to contain oil and gas bearing reservoir sands. The deeper reservoirs have proven to be prolific producers in nearby acreages. 

Success at the KPL-DX exploration well could open up new prospective deeper horizons in the Kharsang field. The management estimate of prospective resources for this exploration prospect on a gross and unrisked basis is 342 bcf of gas and 20 mmbbls of oil. 

GeoEnpro Petroleum Ltd., a joint venture of GeoPetrol and Jubilant Enpro (a member of the wider Jubilant Bhartia Group), is the operator of the Kharsang Field. Jubilant holds a 25% interest in the block through its subsidiary, Jubilant Energy (Kharsang) Pvt Ltd. The other members of the consortium are Oil India Ltd and GeoPetrol.
