The well has drilled through the Miocene channel sand system which constitutes the shallower of the well's two objectives. The well will now be deepened to test a separate Cretaceous target with a planned total depth of approximately 3,965 meters.
Preliminary information from drilling and log results to date suggest that the well has encountered hydrocarbon-bearing sands in a sequence that bears comparison to the equivalent channel section drilled by the 2004 discovery well (Tevét-1) approximately 3km to the north.
Further comment regarding the significance of Tevét-2 cannot be made until additional information being acquired has been analyzed and completed.
