Canadian firm Niko Resources has con-
firmed that the latest well in Reliance
Industries’ prolific D-6 Block in the offshore
Krishna-Godavari Basin, India, has
hit the thickest hydrocarbon column yet
encountered on the block. The MA-2 well

In separate activity, Hardy Oil and
Gas Plc posted an oil and gas discovery at
a wildcat in the Cauvery Basin off the
southern tip of India. It is the operator of
Fan-A-1 in the CY-OS/2 Block and has
75% ownership. The company drilled the
well to 4,089 meters and penetrated several
Cretaceous zones that tested hydrocarbons
with high pressure. An interval from
3,755 to 3,817 meters was perforated over
nine meters and flowed oil and gas to the
surface, but Hardy had to abort the test due
to mechanical problems. The interval
between 3,565-69 tested for 10 million cu.
ft. of gas and 20 bbl. of condensate per day
on a 52/64-in. choke.
