The company further reported that the second development well of the current campaign, KSG#66 (previously known as KPL-3E-4), which was spudded on March 23rd 2013, was successfully drilled to a revised target depth of 1,128 meters measured depth and 1,047 metres true vertical depth on April 8th 2013.

Based on the results of wire-line log interpretation, drill cuttings and formation pressure data from the Reservoir Dynamic Tester, the company said that 12 potentially hydrocarbon bearing sands had been encountered in the well with a total net pay of 50.31m, out of which seven appeared to be oil bearing with a total net pay of 30.33m.
