Mari Petroleum has made a third significant discovery in Pakistan’s Karak Block. The Halini-Deep-1 discovery follows successes at the Halini-X-1 well in 2011 and the Kalabagh-1A well last year. The Halini-Deep well was drilled to a depth of 19,357 ft. Drillstem test results showed production from the Samana Suk reservoir, which lies beneath the Lumshiwal, Hangu, and Lockhart reservoirs to which the previous wells are connected. In a completion integrity test, flow rates of 1,425 B/D of oil and 1.18 MMscf/D (197 BOE/D) of gas were achieved from the new well. Mari, the operator, has a 60% interest in the well. MOL holds the remaining interest.
