Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/5/2011, Location: Asia

Hardy Oil and Gas plc, the oil and gas exploration and production company focused in India, provides an update on the drilling of the KG-D9-B3 well, the second exploratory well on the Company's D9 (KG-DWN-2001/1) exploration licence.

The well was drilled to a total depth of 3,829 m MDRT by the Transocean drillship 'Discoverer India' in a water depth of 2,948 m at a location some 47 km away from the nearest well. The well encountered two Tertiary aged reservoir quality sand packages of 70 and 40 m gross thickness respectively, in which gas shows ranging from 6 to 9 percent were recorded. Testing was carried out with the MDT tool which suggests water gradient in the sand packages. The well has been plugged and abandoned.

The D9 exploration licence is located in the Krishna Godavari Basin on the East Coast of India and covers an area of approximately 11,605 km2. Hardy holds a 10 percent participating interest in the licence which is operated by Reliance Industries Limited.

Yogeshwar Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of Hardy, commented:

"Although this exploration well result is disappointing, the presence of thick reservoir quality sands and the potential presence of a petroleum system are encouraging. We will work with our partner to incorporate the data gathered to update the geological model."
