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, BalochistanSui 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 one of the largest natural gas producing field in Pakistan, contributing substantially to the country’s requirements with daily production of around 446 MMcf.

In order to meet country’s gas demand, efforts such as drilling of new wells, Work overs and modification of surface facilities are continued with the objective to enhance production efficiencies. Accordingly, drilling of development wells Sui-94Sui-96, deepening of Sui-80 and revamping project of SML compressors was completed during 2015-2016. Sui-95 (P) has successfully been drilled, completed and commissioned while drilling of two additional wells Sui-100(U) & Sui-101(U) is also planned to be completed before June-2017.
