GeoPark Ltd. has started its drilling program on the Llanos 34 block in Colombia. The company spudded its Jacana 3 appraisal well with plans to follow with the Jacana 4.
Jacana oil field was opened with Jacana 1, which flowed 1,880 b/d of 14.9° gravity oil with a water cut of 1.9% in September 2015 (OGJ Online, Sep. 2, 2015). The field is currently producing 5,700 b/d of oil from two wells, the company said. Jacana field lies southwest of large Tigana oil field on Llanos 34 block onshore Colombia. The block was erroneously reported as offshore in a previous story.
GeoPark has plans to drill six wells on the block this year, two of which will be exploration wells. The operator holds 45% operating interest in the 82,000-acre Llanos 34 block.
