Colombia’s Ecopetrol said its Trasgo-1 well is the first oil discovery in the western part of the Cano Sur block in the Llanos basin and the fifth find on the block.

Trasgo-1, south of Cano Cumaral, averaged 120 b/d of 13.8° gravity oil from the Carbonera formation at 2,771-75 ft on a progressive cavity pump. Total depth is 2,934 ft.

Ecopetrol said it had to mobilize equipment 130 km from San Martin, the nearest town. The previous discoveries on the block are Mito-1, Fauno-1, Pinocho-1, and CSE8-ST1.
