The structure of Lakhirud X-1 was drilled and tested using OGDCL’s in house expertise, the company noted, adding that the well was drilled down to a depth of 9,842 feet. Based on logs data, the well was tested at rate of 2.5 million standard cubic feet per day of gas and 18 barrels per day of water through a 32/64 inch choke at well head flowing pressure of 600 pounds per square inch, according to OGDCL.
