Albacora well offshore Peru comes up dry

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – The Albacora A-22D well offshore Peru in block Z-1 has found no oil shows in three target zones. BPZ Energy has reported that reinterpretation of all Albacora well and seismic data is under way.

A workover has begun on the Albacora A-27D well to perforate additional untested zones. This is expected to optimize production in the well, and also provide additional data for further evaluation of the deeper Zorritos reservoirs.

Z-1 is a joint operation with Pacific Rubiales Energy Corp.
