Islamabad (WebPaki / Pakistan News – 15th April, 2019) The drilling of oil in Kekra block of Arabian Sea has been stopped due to technical fault.

Media reports said that the technical fault occurred during drilling.

The drilling for oil discovery is reported to have been temporarily suspended due to possible technical fault in the drilling rods.

Media reports said it might take a few days to fix the technical fault. The drilling work will be resumed after the fault is removed.

Pakistan found signs of success in the ongoing oil and gas drilling in the deep sea.

The details suggest that a kick pressure was felt during the ultra-deep drilling in Kekra-1 area of the Arabian Sea. The kick pressure means presence of huge gas reserves.

It is anticipated that gas discovery will yield gas flows which can be bigger than Sui field.

Let it be known that 3000-meter drilling has been completed so far in the sea and will continue to over 4000 meters. Pakistan Petroleum (PPL), Oil & Gas Development Co (OGDCL), ENI and ExxonMobil are carrying out the drilling.
