By OGJ editors

HRT O&G Exploracao e Producao de Petroleo Ltda. Said its 1-HRT-5-AM well on the SOL-T-192 block has tested natural gas to open a new production trend in the Solimoes basin of northwestern Brazil.

HRT noted “exceptional flow characteristics through a vertical well” as the flow reached 13.1 MMcfd of gas through a 40/64-in. choke. The well is on a previously untested structure 20 km south of Jurua field.

HRT O&G holds 55% working interest in the block, and TNK-Brasil has 45%.
