Mari Petroleum continues operations

Islamabad

Mari Petroleum expressed its commitment to continue its exploration, drilling and production operations without any disruption, while at the same time adopting the precautionary measures to ensure safety of its workforce amidst spread of COVID-19. Mari Petroleum recently achieved two significant milestones, says a press release.

First, the company successfully completed seismic data acquisition project in Bannu (West Block) on March 17, 2020. Bannu (West Block), straddling Bannu, Laki Marwat, Kurram Agency, Hangu, and North Waziristan, was dormant since 2005.

The completed project was spread over 836 sq km area. Theses seismic operations by MPCL have already made a positive economic impact by generating business and job opportunities for the locals in this far-flung and less developed area.

Secondly, the company has successfully drilled a development well Zarghun South-4 (ZS-4) in its Zarghun South Gas Field in Balochistan. The well will potentially flow 12-15 million cubic feet of gas per day. The Company plans to start supply of this additional gas to Quetta city. The additional gas volume from ZS-4 will help in bridging the widening gap between energy demand & supply.

With the successful completion of these two critical projects, the Company has once again demonstrated its resolve to overcome all challenges in its efforts to explore and produce indigenous hydrocarbons.
