Project Details


In 2012, seven wells were drilled at Las Maracas targeting an extension of the Mirador reservoir, which also discovered oil in the Gacheta and Une reservoirs. In 2013, an additional seven wells were drilled to exploit the Mirador, Gacheta and Une reservoirs resulting in six producing wells and one disposal well. In 2014, one additional producing well and one disposal well were drilled in the field. Average production for 2014 was 5,000b/d and on May 27, 2014, Las Maracas field was declared commercial. The Las Maracas field's cumulative oil production exceeded 5Mb in January 2014 and, as a result, the high price participation royalty threshold was reached. As of March 2015, exploratory drilling activities were still underway at Ocarros and regulator ANH recorded average production of 3,642b/d at the Las Maracas field.
