The pay zones and flow rates encountered have exceeded AWEL's initial estimates. Out of the three potential zones identified two objects were tested by Drill Stem Testing (DST) , flowed substantial gas and condensate to surface.
Object -I (3m) a clean sandstone reservoir flowed 9.7 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of gas along with 378 barrels /day of condensate through a 28/64 choke with a flowing tubing head pressure (FTHP) of 2659 psi. Object -II (15m) another thick clean sandstone reservoir flowed 9.1 mmscfd of gas along with 443 barrels /day of condensate through a 28/64 choke with a FTHP of 2566 psi.
Preliminary analysis of the data indicate that the Block has a high potential of commerciality with Gas Initially Inplace Place (GIIP) Contingent resources (2C) to the tune of 514 billion cubic feet (BCF) with additional Prospective resources of 50 BCF . Additionally , seismic inversion ,convential core and PVT studies of data collected from the discovery well are being analysed to assess the full potential of the find.
