Uch-II Development Project


The Uch gas field is located about 67 km southeast of Dera Bugti in Baluchistan province. To date we have drilled 36 wells and we are currently supplying 220-225 MMscfd per day to Uch Power Ltd. via a 47 km pipeline at the first mega low heating value gas-fired 586 MW power plant. After completing a detailed study of the Uch gas field, OGDCL adopted a development plan under which production at the Uch gas field is to be increased from 220 to 380 MMscfd per day, enabling us to commit 160 MMscfd per day of gas for 25 years to a new power producer. This project involves installation of a gas gathering facility and installation of dehydration and hydrogen sulphide, (H2S), removal plant and gas delivery Station. GSA with UPL has been signed.

Through the contingent plan, OGDCL is supplying gas to UPL on daily basis as per their demand since Feb 2014. However, OGDCL will complete its new processing facilities soon which will further help to maintain gas supply to UPL.

The Contract of PC Contractor for Plant construction has been signed with To M/s TDE-Zealcon Consortium on 22.07.2013. The PC Contractor mobilized at site and the work has been started. The project would be completed by September, 2014..
