The ONGC says they have struck a “big new structure bearing natural gas” in Tripura. The find happened within two months after OP Singh took over as the new Tripura asset manager of the ONGC. The discovery was reported in the 301 sq kms Sundalbari-Agartala Dome Petroleum Mining Lease (PML) zone.
ONGC sources said that the SD-12 exploration well, drilled to 2536 metres, flowed 140,000 cm/d over two days from Middle Bhuban sands. The well is near Purba Nalchar village in between Sepaijhala and Gomati districts near the border with Bangladesh.
ONGC officials described the discovery as “substantial” and said other prospective wells in this zone will soon be tested. Read More
