The news of the discovery was shared on Monday by Vedanta Limited which said the hydrocarbon discovery had been made in well A3-2 within the block KG-OSN-2009/3 in the Krishna-Godavari Basin, East Coast of India. Vedanta and Cairn India merged in 2017.

Per Vedanta, A3-2 is the first exploration well drilled within the KG-OSN-2009/3 block.

According to Vedanta, multiple reservoir zones were encountered in the Mesozoic rift formation between the depths of 3351-3944m MDBRT with indications of hydrocarbon during drilling and formation evaluations.

Downhole formation tester (MDT) sampled oil and gas from the zones of interest. The zone from 3610-3715m MDBRT flowed gas to surface during well testing.

“Further appraisal will be required to assess the potential commerciality of this Mesozoic rift discovery,” Vedanta said.
