By OGJ editors

A drillstem test of 8 m of new pay in the Carboniferous Jurua formation in the 1-HRT-4-AM well in the Solimoes basin in Brazil indicated a production potential of 8.8 MMcfd of gas and 300 b/d of 65° gravity condensate, said HRT Participacoes em Petroleo SA, Rio de Janeiro.

HRT said the TUS-116 rig will remain on SOL-T-194 block to test an updip appraisal well on the same

structure and further evaluate its commercial potential. The HRT-4 well, 25 km south of Urucu, reached a total depth of 2,806 m. HRT has 100% interest in the block.
