Bhimanapalli block has been awarded to PFH OIL & GAS PL by Govt of India during marginal field DSF – 2016 round. The total allocated area of the block is 15.01 sq.km. This block was explored by ONGC in year 1984.

ONGC have drilled two wells during exploration phase named as “Bhimanapalli – 1” and “Uppidi – 1”. Bhimanapalli - 1 was drilled in year 1984 while Uppidi - 1 is in year 2007. Thereafter the wells were temporarily abandoned. Bhimanapalli was drilled to explore the Eocene carbonate (reef) build up, & also Paleocene sediments in bhimanapalli structure in east Godavari sub basin. 

Uppidi -1 was drilled to explore sand Vadaparru shale.

Limestone zone has been encountered in both the wells during drilling. 

In both well, potential hydrocarbon zone is suspected below 2000mKB depth.
