HOUSTON, Dec. 13
– Colombia’s state Ecopetrol said Draco-1, second stratigraphic test on the Cano Sur block in the Llanos basin, has detected an oil reservoir.

The well went to 3,284 ft. Preliminary evaluation indicates the presence of crude oil in Eocene Carbonera with 9 ft net reservoir thickness and 30% average porosity. The Mago-1 stratigraphic test previously found oil on the block.

Ecopetrol is block operator with 50% interest, and Shell Exploration & Production Cano Sur GMBH has the other 50%.
