PGNiG, also known as Polish Oil and Gas Company (POGC) operates in Pakistan as a branch office of PGNiG Group Poland, which has a majority shareholding of the Polish Government.

PGNiG began its operations in Pakistan in May 1997 and has been conducting petroleum exploration and production activities as an Operator since then. Before acquiring the current Kirthar Concession (Block No. 2667-7), PGNiG operated and carried out exploration activities in four other Concessions namely Khanpur West, Sabzal, Mekhtar and Sabzal South. PGNiG has also held a 40% Working Interest in an exploration block in Nawabshah, Sindh as a Non-Operating Partner. PGNiG acquired the Kirthar Block, located in District Dadu (Sindh), as Operator in 2005 and Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) farmed-in the Block as a Joint Venture Partner in 2006.

PGNiG made discovery of Rehman-1 well in 2009 and started extended well test (EWT) production from it in 2013 hence, becoming the first “Tight Gas” producer in Pakistan. The appraisal phase for Rehman gas field was successfully concluded in August, 2015 whereby commerciality of the field was declared. Government of Pakistan awarded a Development and Production Lease over Rehman field in 2017 for a period of 25 years.

In 2015, PGNiG made a second discovery by drilling Rizq-1 well in the Kirthar Block. This year also earmarks the commissioning of the Rehman Production Facility (RPF) which was constructed to process the produced gas from Rehman and Rizq fields. The facility was inaugurated by the then Honourable Minister for Petroleum & Natural Resources on November 17, 2015.

PGNiG more than doubled its production from the Kirthar Block when gas from Rizq field was added to the national grid in November 2016. In 2017, processing capacity of RPF was enhanced from 15 to 40 MMScfd to incorporate the anticipated production from Rizq field. Appraisal program of the Rizq field was completed in 2018 following by declaration of commerciality and grant of D&PL over Rizq field for a period of 25 years.

Until now, PGNiG has drilled 11 wells in Kirthar Block comprising 3 exploratory, 3 appraisal and 5 development wells. PGNiG has thus far invested ~US$233 million in Pakistan in exploration and production activities in all of its existing & previously held concessions. Out of this, ~US$216 million have been invested in Kirthar Block mainly on exploration, drilling of the wells, construction of Rehman Production Facility & its augmentation and ~50 km of sales gas transport pipeline. The current production from producing wells in the Block stands at ~ 35 MMScfd which is planned to be increased to ~ 80 MMscfd with continued development of existing fields and other exploratory prospects in the Kirthar Block. The RPF has been augmented in September 2019 to cater for the processing & dehydration requirements of the increased production.

PGNiG is actively pursuing development plan of Rehman & Rizq fields in Kirthar Block and aims to increase its footprint in the Pakistani upstream sector. PGNiG trusts the investment climate in Pakistan and is committed to contribute to its energy security.
