Cairn Sri Lanka, the Sri Lankan exploration subsidiary of Cairn India, said it is currently engaged in discussions with the Sri Lankan government regarding the commercial terms and pricing of the gas discovered in the block awarded to them.

Cairn made two gas discoveries in its block in the Mannar Basin out of the four wells drilled under phase 1 and 2.

According to Cairn, the company is currently considering appraisal options for the gas discoveries made and for continuing into exploration phase 3.

“Monetization of the existing discoveries continues to be evaluated under various development and commercial scenarios. Discussions with the Government of Sri Lanka regarding commercial terms and gas pricing are progressing,” Cairn said.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka has announced a second licencing round for remaining 13 blocks in Mannar and Cauvery basins and joint study programmes for deep sea block outside the bid round.

The deadline for bids closes on November 29 and Petroleum Resources Development Secretariat Chairman Saliya Wickramasuriya recently told Sri Lanka’s first-ever petroleum forum that the blocks will be awarded to selected bidders by the first quarter of next year for hydro carbon explorations.
