– Quetzal Energy Ltd., Calgary, installed a pump to improve fluid recovery at the Atzam-3A well in Guatemala, where the company is operator with 97% working interest.

Numerous mechanical and logistical issues delayed initial tests, the company said. After perforating at 1,194-98 ft and 1,216-18 ft, Quetzal swabbed and flowed at 20 b/d of 34° gravity oil and 60 b/d of formation water for 9 days.

Several months of production tests are planned to determine whether the perforated intervals are commercial.
