The Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) has discovered oil and gas from its exploratory Chak 7A Well No. 1, some 22 km north west of Sanghar, Sindh Province. This discovery would help in import substitution of the country to the tune of $ 14 mm per annum.
Historically unprecedented, the company has struck eight discoveries within ten months in the Southern Indus Basin and a ninth one since March 2001, each from distinctly different reservoir layers. According to OGDCL, significant reserves of hydrocarbons have been found at Chak 7-A.

Sinjhoro Exploration License is a Joint Venture of OGDCL (76 %), OPI (9 %) and Government Holding Private Limited (5 %). Exploratory well Chak 7-A1 was drilled down to the depth of 3,050 meters. During the initial testing, the Chak7-A1 well has flowed 800 bpd of condensate and about 5 mm cfpd of gas through half an inch choke.
The wellhead flowing pressure was recorded as 1,200 psi. The barrel of oil equivalent of this discovery translates into 1,600 bpd.

Committed to drill seven exploratory wells in Sinjhoro block in the third year of license period OGDCL has successfully accomplished its commitment. Out of these seven structures, six have produced a commercial quantity of hydrocarbon.
