Omega Energy Abandons Calacho-1, Racamao-1 Exploration Wells
Brownstone Energy Inc. (Brownstone Energy) has been informed by Omega Energy Colombia, the operator of the Llanos 21 block in the Llanos basin in Colombia, that it has abandoned the Calacho No. 1 and the Rocamao No. 1 wells. The wells were part of a continuous two-well drilling and testing program carried out by the operator in fulfillment of the exploration requirements on the block. Completion and testing of the wells was delayed by a combination of weather conditions and blockades of industry access roads in the area by local citizens.
The C7 formation in the Calacho No. 1 well was recently tested. During the test period the C7 formation produced a total of 5,857 barrels of fluid, consisting of 5,669 barrels of water and 188 barrels of 35 degree API oil. The maximum fluid production rate was approximately 1,450 barrels per day. The testing program was ended when the water cut reached 100 percent. With no further oil production, the operator made the decision to abandon the well.
The C7 formation in the Rocamao No. 1 well was also tested. The C7 formation produced 64 barrels of water in 3 hours at rates that fluctuated between 192 and 336 barrels of fluid per day. Total testing resulted in the production of 329 barrels of water with no oil produced and the decision was made by the operator to abandon the well. With no oil produced, the operator made the decision to abandon the well.
Brownstone Energy has satisfied its financial obligations in respect of the block and following the abandonment of both the Calacho No. 1 and the Rocamao No. 1 wells, intends to terminate its remaining interest in the block.
