The top of the Lisama Formation was penetrated at a depth of approximately 4,800 ft md. Based on Canacol's petrophysical analysis of the openhole logs run across the interval, the Lisama contains approximately 85 ft of potential net oil pay with an average porosity of 21% in 3 main zones.
The Upper Lisama was perforated between 5,392 - 5,408 ft md and yielded an average of 340 and 409 bopd of 20 API with a final water cut of 2% over two separate 24 hour tests. The Lower Lisama was perforated between 5,509 - 5,540 ft md and yielded an average of 523 and 833 bopd of 21 API with a final water cut of 0.5% over two separate 24 hour tests.
La Luna Results
The top of the La Luna was encountered at a depth of 9,180 ft md. Good oil and gas shows were encountered across the gross drilled interval of approximately 760 ft md, with the La Luna exhibiting high overpressure of up to 16.5 ppg throughout the entire interval. The La Luna was cored between 9,925 and 9,942 ft md. Upon completion of the coring, the operator cased the well to ensure well integrity.
Based on Canacol's petrophysical analysis of the openhole logs run across the interval, the part of the La Luna penetrated in the well contains approximately 230 ft of potential net oil pay with an average porosity of 14%.
Plans to re-enter the well and either proceed to drill the remainder of the La Luna Formation or to not drill any further and test that portion of the La Luna that has already been penetrated, is yet to be decided. This operation is anticipated to occur late in the second quarter of 2013.
