Under the agreement, the Company will participate in the drilling of the Jacala-1 exploration well and earn a 25% equity by contributing to the cost of the well inclusive of a farm-in promote amount.
The well is expected to be drilled in the 3rd quarter of 2005 with a drilling slot scheduled on the Atwood Eagle semisub.

If successful, the structure has the potential to contain a very large oil accumulation with the risks interpreted as being reservoir quality and oil charge. Seismic data does not indicate the presence of gas.
