Oil India Exploratory Efforts Made Two Hydrocarbon Discoveries In Assam
Oil India Limited (OIL), through its exploratory efforts has made 2 (two) Hydrocarbon Discoveries in Dibrugarh & Tinsukia district in the Upper Assam Basin during the second quarter (Q2) of the financial year 2018-19, in the wells West Lohali -1 and Dhakuwal-I respectively.
The well West Lohali-I encountered one sand in Barail formation of Oligocene age. On testing, a l3 m Barail sand at a depth of 2357 m, produced gas atthe rate of 1,15,000 scmd.
The well Dhakuwal-I encountered two zones in LK+TH formation of Eocene age. On testing, a 15 m LK+TH sand at a depth of 3875 m, produced gas at the rate of 1,00,000 scmd with 22 m3/d condensate.
These discoveries are envisaged to open up new areas for further exploration in Assam and would help in enhancing the gas production with future appraisal & development activities.
