Based on the wireline log results and drilling data, hydrocarbon bearing zones were identified in Goru formations of Cretaceous age.

During testing, the well flowed 0.08 MMscfd from 2730-2760 m interval at 16/64” choke. Moreover, from zone between 2250-2375 m, continuous gas was observed at surface with the rate of 0.02 MMscfd at 8/64” choke. This rate may be uncertain due to very low flow rate.
