KA-10PTR produced an estimated gas flow rate of 1.2mn standard cubic metres per day over the first 10-day period, in addition to the previously reported flows of 9.4mn standard cubic metres per day from KA-03PTR, which is eight kilometres away.

The flows support the exploration geophysical logs and coal desorption data, which Kinetiko Energy said indicates widespread gas in coal and conventional gas in adjacent sandstones.

KA-10PTR is currently shut in for a pressure build up test, pending further technical and joint venture negotiations, company sources said.
