    (JEC) TSX

    CALGARY, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Jura Energy Corporation ("Jura") is pleased to
announce the successful drilling of the Hasan 3 well in the Block 22 Gas Field
which is located in the Central Gas Basin, Pakistan.
    The well was drilled to a total depth of 1,022 meters to the Sui Main
Limestone ("SML") reservoir on time and within budget. The well was tested at
a rate of 2.7 MMscf/d pre-acidization through a 24/64" choke and constrained
by 2-7/8" tubing. Post acidization, which is a normal technical procedure for
the SML reservoir, it is expected that the well will produce at a
significantly higher rate based upon reservoir modeling and the results of
previous wells drilled in the Block. The Hasan 3 well will be acidized after
an inter-connecting pipeline has been laid and tied-in to the Block 22
processing facilities. This is expected to occur in approximately six to
eight weeks.
    The rig is currently being moved to the Khanpur 2 well site which is
located approximately 15 kilometers from Hasan 3 within Block 22. Khanpur 2
will be the second of a three well program to be drilled within the Block.
    Jura holds a 10.5% participating interest in Block 22.
