HOUSTON, Jan. 29 -- A second zone has tested gas at an exploratory well 60 miles off eastern Trinidad.

A group led by Canadian Superior Energy Inc., Calgary, said the Victory well on Intrepid Block 5(c) averaged more than 30 MMscfd on a restricted basis at high pressures. The first zone, also on restricted test, gauged 40-45 MMscfd plus condensate (OGJ Online, Jan. 15, 2008).

The group has identified possible other prospective horizons in the well that will be evaluated in other planned wells. The second well, Bounty, is to spud by mid-February.

Participating with Canadian Superior are BG International Ltd. and Challenger Energy Corp., another Calgary independent.
