Block 76

Starts drilling a first well be


vertically. Depending on the
results, one or two additional
exploratory wells could be drilled
to delineate the size of the
reservoir.
These
additional
exploratory wells will be diverted
(directionally) with an estimated
3,500 m of vertical shaft horizontal
scrolling.

3.500 meters
deep

Gas

Involves the drilling of up to


3,500 meters deep to know
the composition of the
sediments in the subsoil and
the possible presence of
hydrocarbons. The surface
drilling area occupy a
maximum of 4 hectares
where a temporary metal
structure known as Derrick
will be placed. Three wells in
the first location, vertical
and two directional wells will
be drilled.
