OGDCL identified that the Umair South East # 01 well was spudded on May 9, 2022.

As a tentative well to test the hydrocarbon potential of Pirkoh Formation and Habib Rahi Limestone (HRL) to a deliberate depth of 785m into HRL.

“Based on the results of wireline logs interpretation, successful Drill Stem Test-1 in HRL has tested 1.063 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) gas through choke size 32/64″ at Well Head Flowing Pressure (WHFP) of 210 Pounds per Square Inch (PSi).”
