The shallow prospects to be drilled are analogues of historic prolific Frio and Vicksburg sands production in the project area at less than 2,000 meters depth. This program is a precursor to commencement of a drilling program on more substantial individual deep 30 to 200 BCF gas potential prospects forecast to commence mid year 2007.
Operations on El Viejito #1 at 07.00 hours Australian WST, Thursday 21 December 2006, was running 8 5/8" surface casing at 630 feet (192 meters) in vertical hole. On completion of this operation a Christmas break will ensue and it is planned to drill ahead on December 26th in 7 5/8" hole to basal Frio and Vicksburgh targets and final depth of 6,200 feet (1,920 meters) where the hole will be logged and a decision will be made to run 4 1/2" casing and test target zones of interest. A further update will be made on completion of the well in the New Year.
