Amerisur Resources Plc, the oil and gas producer and explorer focused on South America, provided an update on the well Platanillo-3 in the Platanillo Field, Colombia, the first of a planned six well drilling campaign.
The well has successfully reached total depth at 8,250 feet and has been logged, cased and cemented.
Drill Stem Testing equipment has been mobilized and is being rigged up to perform production tests. The surface equipment on location has also been constructed and commissioned.
The reservoir sections encountered in the well are currently being studied to determine which zones will be tested. Encouragingly, the Lower "U" formation was encountered 33 feet higher than the next highest well in the field, in line with the 3D seismic model, indicating the potential for an increased oil column.
