RIL finds natural gas in Mahanadi basin block


Gas was discovered in the well AJ2 last month, Toronto-listed Niko said in a regulatory filing.
A source in know of the development said this is not a new discovery but appraisal of earlier gas finds. “AJ2 is an appraisal well drilled to access the potential in the previous A6 and J1 discoveries. Gas was struck in AJ2 but it is not a new pool.”

Since AJ2 is an appraisal well and not a new discovery, RIL — the operator of the block NEC-OSN-97/2 or NEC-25 — has not made any announcement.
