Focus Energy Limited has discovered high quality gas reserves in the exploratory well drilled at Shahagarh block in Jaisalmer at a depth of 3,161 metres.

The gas, similar to the that found in Pakistan's Miano and Swan gas fields, is estimated to have 88 to 91 per cent hydrocarbon.

The gas discovered by Focus Energy Limited (FEL)would promote investment in exploration of hydrocarbons in Jaisalmer basin and other areas, state's Mines and Peroleum minister Laxmi Narain Dave said.

Earlier, ONGC had discovered 2,900 million cubic metres gas reserves while Oil India found 9,200 million cubic metres of gas reserves in the state so far and the ministry hoped that the available gas reserves would augment the power generation in the state, he said.
