Oil & Gas Development Co. said Thursday that it has made a gas discovery over the Mughalkot formation from its exploration at the Jandran West X-1 well in Pakistan.

The Pakistani oil-and-gas company said this discovery will add to its hydrocarbon reserves base, as well as the country's.

OGDCL said the well, which is located in the province of Balochistan, flowed at a rate of 2.391 million standard cubic feet per day gas.

"Based on the good gas shows during drilling and interpretation of open hole logs data, a drill stem test has been performed in the Mughalkot formation," the company said.

A DST is a type of test used to decide whether or not to complete a well.
