HOUSTON, Dec. 18
– Harvest Natural Resources Inc. reported the start of production from an eight-well appraisal and development program at its Antelope project between Altamont Bluebell and Monument Butte oil fields in Utah.

Newfield Exploration Co., operator of Monument Butte field, operates the program.

Harvest said the first well, Moon 1-29-4-2, went on production Dec. 6 with average flow in the first 7 days of 344 b/d of oil and 500 Mcfd of gas. The second well, Moon 1-20-4-2, was just coming on stream.

A third well was awaiting completion after logs indicated thicker pay than was encountered in the earlier two wells. Harvest expects the program to be complete in the first quarter of 2010.

Production is from the Eocene Green River formation at about 6,800 ft.
