Ecuador prepares to bring Tiputini field into production

Ecuadoran state E&P operator Petroamazonas is scheduled to begin oil output at the Tiputini field in block 43 in July.

The update follows a visit by hydrocarbons minister José Icaza Romero to verify production testing of a third Tiputini well which has potential to produce up to 5,000b/d.

Tiputini drilling began in March and the goal is to hit 20,000b/d in December.

Petroamazonas has budgeted US$150mn this year for block 43 which covers 190,000ha in Orellana province and holds an estimated 920Mb.

The company reported record production in April with 366,754b/d, compared with 365,942b/d in the same month of last year. A study by Wood Mackenzie forecasts the state operator's operational costs this year at US$17/b.
