Exploratory well MBOS51NAA#1 in NELP block MB-OSN-2005/1, Western offshore basin was drilled to a depth of 3,385 m. Interval 2,549.5 to 2,555m in Tertiary Daman formation on testing through produced gas @ 250,107 m3/day and condensate @ 255 barrels/day through 3/8” choke. Another interval 2,515.5 – 2,526.5m also in Tertiary Daman formation on testing through produced gas @ 209,734 m3/day and condensate @ 180 barrels/day through 3/8” choke. This is the 2nd discovery in this block after earlier notified discovery MBOS51NBA#1. These discoveries in close vicinity of C-37/ C-39, B-9 areas will enhance the overall gas potential of the area.
