Emerald Completes Well in Campo Rico

Emerald Energy Plc said that it has completed drilling of the Centauro Sur No. 2 appraisal well in its Campo Rico block in Colombia.

The well has been drilled to a total depth of 10,865 feet and completed for testing with an electrical submersible pump. In the first 24 hours of steady test production, it produced more than 700 barrels of oil.

“We are pleased to have confirmed the production potential of the Centauro Sur field, discovered earlier in the year,” said Alastair Beardsall, Emerald’s chairman.
