Sui Gas Field

The Sui name has become synonymous with natural gas in Pakistan. Located at a distance of about 650 kilometres (km) from Karachi in Dera Bugti, Balochistan, Sui is Pakistan Petroleum Limited’s flagship gas field. As a major production facility, Sui Gas Field (SGF) hosts the country’s largest gas compressor station and a purification plant.

At the time of its discovery, SGF was considered among the largest natural gas fields in the world with recoverable reserves of around 12 Tcf. Despite diminishing reserves over time, SGF still remains the highest natural gas producing field in Pakistan, contributing substantially to the country’s requirements with daily production of around 444 MMscf.

In order to meet demand of contractual delivery volumes of gas sales, new wells, including horizontal wells, are being drilled at SGF to counter obsolescence and enhance production efficiencies. To this end, development wells Sui-97(H) and 99(H) in Habib Rahi Formation were completed. Besides, well Sui-98(U)-Hor. was recently completed and successfully commissioned in December 2013.
