Lucara Diamond finds 239 ct stone

The big finds keep coming for Lucara Diamond Corp. The latest notable discovery is a 239.2-carat diamond from the Karowe Mine in Botswana.

In addition, two more large stones weighing 124 carats and 71.1 carats have also been recovered. The diamonds will be sent to Antwerp to be studied prior to being sold later in the year. The company explained that the diamonds were recovered from the central kimberlite domain, which has only recently become ore feed to the plant as the pit expands towards the south.

"The recovery of these large stones is hugely significant to both Lucara and Botswana,” said William Lamb, president and CEO.

BOTSWANA – Lucara Diamond Corp. of Vancouver has recovered a rare 9.46-ct Type II blue diamond from its wholly owned Karowe mine. The diamond is the first of its kind to be identified at Karowe.

RIL, BP and NIKO announce a significant gas condensate discovery in deepwater KG D6 block, offshore India

Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) and its partners BP and NIKO today announced a significant gas and condensate discovery in the KG D6 block off the eastern coast of India.
The KGD6-MJ1 well was drilled in a water depth of 1,024 metres - and to a total depth of 4,509 metres - to explore the prospectivity of a Mesozoic Synrift Clastic reservoir lying over 2,000 metres below the already producing reservoirs in the D1- D3 gas fields.

Formation evaluation indicates a gross gas and condensate column in the well of about 155 metres in the Mesozoic reservoirs. In the drill stem test, the well flowed 30.6 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) and liquid rate of 2,121 barrels a day with a choke of 36/64" with a flowing bottom hole pressure of 8461 psia suggesting good flow potential. Well flow rates during such tests are limited by the rig and well test equipment configuration.
