SUKKUR (APP) - International Sovereign Energy Corp (the "Company") (TSX: ISR) reported that drilling is underway on the 2,435.4 Sq. Km Sukkur Block, Sindh province, in which the Company has an assigned 15% direct Working Interest (W.I.), company sources said here ON Saturday. The Sukkur Block is located within a core Pakistan gas producing basin. Mari Gas Company Limited (MGCL), the second largest gas production company in the country, is the Sukkur Block project operator. Sources said that it was after extensive seismic review and interpretation of various prospects within the Block, two separate high priority gas structures were selected for drilling on a back-to-back basis starting with prospect 'A' followed by prospect 'B'. The reservoir target for both prospects, they said was the (Eocene) Sui Main Limestone (depth approximately 1,200m) which is the primary producing gas reservoir in the area.Numerous large producing gas fields with multiple reservoirs surround the concession. Prospect 'A' covers a 5 Sq. Km area and prospect 'B' covers a 4.1 Sq. Km area. The projected recoverable reserve estimates, as calculated by MGCL through Monte Carlo Simulation, were said to exceed 40 bcf for each prospect. They mentioned that estimated time to drill each well was 30 days and that both prospects were within five Km from a main gas pipeline so that a discovery can be brought on stream on a fast track basis. Drilling results will be released upon availability.
