    First Shale gas, oil well to be drilled in December

    Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) has planned to start drilling activities in potential areas of Sindh in December this year for exploration of Shale gas and oil deposits identified almost five years ago, which would also help determine the cost of fuel extraction.

    “In pursuit of the Shale gas exploration, the company is working to drill the first-ever unconventional Shale gas well in December at a fast track. Following which, the OGDCL Board and its management are also planning to carry out back to back drilling at nine more Shale wells,” a senior official privy to petroleum sector developments told APP.

    A study completed in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development, covering lower and middle Indus Basin, had identified massive Shale gas and oil reserves in 2015.

    The report confirmed presence of 10,159 trillion cubic feet (TCF) Shale gas and 2,323 billion of stock tank barrels (BSTB) Shale oil in place resources.

    Thank you for the post sir.

    However, One shale well doesn't mean anything.

    Unconventional shale development requires hundreds of wells with multiple horizontal well laterals from a single pad.

    This is probably a shale pilot well... A technology potential demonstrator.. whether shale gas potential in pakistan. If positive... And if further development makes sense... Expect actual full scale field development in +5 yrs.
