New Prospect discoveries
Well Nohta-2 in Vindhyan Basin
Well Nohta-2 was drilled in nomination block DamohJaberaKatni falling in the state of Madhya Pradesh, situated northeast of Nohta town in Damoh district approximately 230 km in the east from Bhopal. The well was drilled down to a depth of 1850m. Based on the analysis of well data and logs recorded in the well, one interval from 1702 to 1727m was identified for barefoot testing.

Discovery of gas in this well has given a new boost to exploration for hydrocarbons in this Category-III basin after first discovery of gas reported in 1991 in well Jabera-1.

The discovery is significant as it is in one of the oldest sedimentary sequences of Proterozoic age.

Well GK-42-1 in Kutch Offshore

The prospect is situated in shallow water depth of 30 m at a distance of about 50 km from the coast (Okha Port in Gujarat). The well spudded on December 31, 2011 was drilled down to 1470m. On conventional testing, interval 1372-69 m in Nakhatrana formation of Paleocene age flowed gas. Another interval in Jakhau formations on MDT gave gas. Conventional testing of Jakhau formation is yet to be done.
