Ecopetrol has dry gas find in Caribbean offshore Colombia

Colombia’s state Ecopetrol said its Equion Energia affiliate, operator of the Mapale-1 exploratory well in the Caribbean Sea offshore Colombia, has indicated that fluid tests and recordings carried out on the well show the presence of dry natural gas.

The company provided no depths or other details of the indicated discovery.

With exploratory drilling complete, Equion Energia will begin the technical evaluation phase, which will take into account the well’s results and previously shot seismic data in the area in order to determine the discovery’s potential.

Equion Energia drilled Mapale-1 on Block RC5, awarded by Colombia’s ANH in 2007. Equion Energia is operator with a 40.56% stake. Ecopetrol has 32%, and Brazil’s Petrobras has 27.44%.
