This picture is of a drilling rig at a development well—“Manzalai-09,” in TAL Block, Potohar basin, which is tectonically active with abnormal pressure distribution in the formations. A maximum of 45,000 psi compressive strength has been recorded in the lower sands, and drilling through these formations is always challenging. Photo taken with a Sony Cybershot DSC RX100.
