New gas found at Kailastila

Posted by habib on on Aug. 23, 2012, 2:56 p.m.  

State-run oil and gas exploration company BAPEX has found fresh layer of gas at the well number four at the Kailastila gas field in Sylhet's Golapganj. Officials are speculating that this layer of gas may produce 20-25 billion cubic-feet gas daily. Dr Md Hussain Monsur, Chairman of the government-owned Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Resources Corporation or Petrobangla, on Sunday told bdnews24.com: "The experimental lifting and a drilling stem test (DST) began around 12:30pm to find out how much recoverable gas the new layer has." He said this gas layer may have a total reserve of 40-50 billion cubic feet. "The rate of pressure was 2,300 PSIG (pressure per square inch gas) during the exploration lifting." "It's an old gas field. Repairs were going on in here for some time to increase the pressure of gas. The gas layer was found near the well No. 4." If everything goes well, they will be able to add the gas from this layer to the national grid 'very soon', he said. BAPEX Managing Director Mortuza Ahmad Faruque told bdnews24.com: "This field had three zones before. This new layer was found right in the middle of the middle and upper zones." Sylhet Gas Field Company Managing Director Mohammad Tofazzal Hossain bdnews24.com that a decision was taken to workover the gas well four at Kailastila after its production rate decreased and water spilled from the well. The new layer of gas was found between 2,722 and 2,729 metres under the ground while the work-over was going on, he added. According to Petrobangla, Bangladesh currently produces 2,200 million cubic feet of gas every day against a daily demand of 2,700 to 3,000 million.
