PGNiG discovers more gas in the Podkarpacie region

Polish Oil and Gas Company PGNiG has successfully drilled another well on the Mielec–Bojanów fields. Together with the previous wellbore in the area, the Korzeniówek-2K appraisal well will ultimately add approximately 24 million cubic metres (mcm) per year to PGNiG’s natural gas output.

Exploration work in the area was commenced in late 2017. The recorded flow of high-methane natural gas is typical of the region’s prevalent geological structure, the Carpathian Foredeep Basin miocene formation.

“Positive results returned by another gas well drilled in Podkarpacie confirm that the region is key to ensuring Poland’s energy security, its producing reserves play a very important role in our strategy of diversifying gas supply sources,” said Jerzy Kwieciński, President of the PGNiG Management Board. “Thanks to the drilling of further wells and the use of state-of-the-art digital tools in field production processes, we want to step up the domestic output of natural gas in the years to come.”

According to the company’s estimates, annual gas production from Korzeniówek-2K will be close to 17.4 mcm, plus approximately 6.6 mcm from the previously drilled Korzeniówek-1K.
