OGDCL Commences Production from Chak 63-2 Well, Significantly Boosting Pakistan’s Energy Independence


In a significant development for Pakistan’s energy sector, the Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) has announced the successful commencement of production from the Chak 63-2 well in the Chak 63 Development and Production Lease (D&PL) located in Sanghar, Sindh.

Currently, the well is contributing 525 barrels per day (BPD) of oil, with 2.25 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of gas being processed at the OGDCL Sinjhoro Gas Processing Plant. Additionally, an impressive 7.0 metric tons per day (MTD) of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is being recovered.

This milestone marks a seamless integration of injected gas into the Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGCL) network, bolstering Pakistan’s national gas supply infrastructure. The production from Chak 63-2 is expected to significantly reduce Pakistan’s import bill by approximately $30 million per year, showcasing OGDCL’s commitment to enhancing the country’s energy independence.

OGDCL’s proactive approach underscores its dedication to implementing a cohesive strategy for exploration, drilling, and development operations, all aimed at optimizing production and securing Pakistan’s energy future.
