OGDC Commences production from Wali (Bettani) Oil & Gas Field in KPK

By the grace of Almighty Allah, Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL), the operator of the Wali (Bettani) Exploration License with a 100% working interest, is delighted to announce the commencement of production from the Wali (Bettani) Oil & Gas Field situated in District Lakki Marwat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province.

OGDCL has installed all necessary production facilities, including well flow lines, a gathering network, separators, a dehydration plant, a membrane unit, crude oil storage tanks, and dispatch gantries. These facilities have been installed by the OGDCL team utilising in-house expertise and resources. The Development of the early production facility did not involve any import or local procurement as equipment available at other facilities was refurbished, remodelled and upgraded for utilisation at Wali (Bettani).

We are proud to declare that the Wali (Bettani) Gas Field has commenced production by injection of gas into the SNGPL transmission system with the following anticipated daily production rates:

· Gas Production (Qgas): 10 MMSCF/Day and Oil Production (Qoil) : 1000 Bbls/Day

Going forward, OGDCL will drill two additional wells, i.e. Wali Deep #1 and Wali # 02, during the next few months. Upon completion of these wells, production would enhance to 50 MMSCF/Day with 3000 bbl of oil. The production from Wali (Bettani) field will help in meeting the energy requirement of the Country and mitigate reliance on imported energy. The initial production will help save US $ 43 M in foreign exchange annually. Upon full production by the end of FY 2023-24, the savings would surpass US$ 176 M. This is indeed a proud amount for the OGDCL family for contributing to the prosperity of Pakistan.
