India: ONGC Announces Hydrocarbons Discovery in Shallow Waters off Amalapuram


The exploratory well GS-KV-1 drilled in the IF PEL block in KG Basin- Shallow offshore to a depth of 2,908m, produced gas from interval 2,698-2,696m & 2,694-2,691m @ 81,910 m3/d & condensate @ 47 bbls/d (6.4 m3/d) through 6 mm bean and from another interval 2677- 2672m @ 1,26,583 m3/d & condensate @ 96 bbls/d (13.1 m3/d) through 8 mm bean.

The prospect is located only three kms off Amalapuram coastline and drilled in a water depth of 8 meters. The development of the shallow water area is under concept stage in the East Coast and would be consolidated for evolving a cluster based approach of development and production.

The discovery of gas in sands within these two reservoir intervals developed in Ravva Formation has established hydrocarbon prospectivity further towards east-south-east & west-south-west of Kesavadasupalem and Kesanapalli West fields.
