HOUSTON, Jan. 15 -- A group led by Canadian Superior Energy Inc., Calgary, gauged a gas-condensate discovery on Block 5(c) 60 miles off Trinidad and Tobago's east coast.

At least one uphole zone remained to be tested at the Victory-1 well, while the first formation flowed at restricted rates of 40-45 MMcfd with 30 bbl/MMcf of condensate.

Canadian Superior, without giving figures, said, "The flowing wellhead pressure on a restricted basis and bottomhole pressures are comparable or better than other producing wells and fields in the immediate area."

The well, the first in a three-well exploration program on the block, is on the 80,000-acre Intrepid block just east of Dolphin gas field and 3 miles from a pipeline to shore. TD is 16,150 ft. The Bounty prospect is next, to be followed by Endeavour.

The other participants are BG International Ltd. and Challenger Energy Corp., another Calgary independent.
