Colombia: Amerisur adds strong Putumayo oil well

The well’s controlled production rate of 1,500 b/d initially will boost company output to 3,500 b/d. The well encountered 99 ft gross pay, 79 ft net, in the U sands of the Villeta formation.

The company expressed confidence of achieving a yearend production rate of 5,000 b/d.
