French oil and gas independent Maurel & Prom has reported a new oil discovery at the Guarrojo permit's Ocelote-1 exploration well in Colombia's Llanos central region.
The well stopped at 4,816ft (1,468m) and pumped 600b/d oil at 23.6 degrees API, the company said in a statement.
Maurel & Prom is planning a 3D seismic survey and extended test to appraise Ocelote, which boasts 3P reserve estimates of 35Mb.
"A long test period will start and production will be transferred by truck," the statement said.
Maurel & Prom's proven and probable reserves after royalties could be 11.4Mb compared to 2006 production of 5.2Mb.
