Oil, Gas Found in Chachahuen Block, Argentina

Andes Energia plc, a producer and explorer in Argentina and Colombia, announced Thursday that oil and gas discoveries have been made in the Chachahuen block in the Province of Mendoza, Argentina. 

Around 20 feet of net oil pay was discovered in the sandstone of the Rayoso formation in exploration well Cerro Redondo x-1 and gas was found in exploration well La Orilla x-1 in the deeper horizon of the Lotena formation. Gas was also found in exploration well Remanso del Colorado x-1 in the deeper horizon of the Cuyo Group.

"The new oil discovery at the CoRe x-1 untapped a new reservoir to be appraised and developed, in the same way the presence of gas identified in the deeper horizons of wells LaO x-1 and Re Co x-1 opens a new exploratory frontier, which reaffirms the large scale hydrocarbon potential of Chachahuen,” said Nicolas Mallo Huergo, Andes Energia chairman.
