Alvopetro Announces 182-C1 Well Results
CALGARY, AB, Aug. 22, 2022
CALGARY, AB, Aug. 22, 2022 /CNW/ - Alvopetro Energy Ltd. (TSXV: ALV) (OTCQX: ALVOF) announces that we have suspended testing at the 182-C1 well on our 100% owned and operated Block 182 in the Recôncavo basin. During the testing operation we perforated the entire 25m of net pay section of the well on tubing conveyed perforations in an underbalanced condition. No formation flow was observed after the initial perforations. We injected 124 barrels ("bbls") of 15% hydrochloric acid to remove possible near wellbore damage. We then removed the liquid from the wellbore with a jet lift operation using nitrogen and coil tubing. After recovering 231 bbls of the initial 303 bbls of brine and acid we discontinued operations, due to lack of progress in removing any further liquids. We have not recovered any hydrocarbons from the wellbore and will continue to monitor the wellbore pressure from surface, but expect to permanently abandon wellbore in the future.
The primary and secondary targets of the 182-C1 well were the Agua Grande and Sergi Formations, respectively. Based on open hole logs, the 182-C1 well encountered net pay in the Agua Grande Formation very close to the main bounding fault and the well crossed over the fault before encountering the secondary target in the Sergi Formation. We plan to drill a follow up well, 182-C2, to assess the Agua Grande reservoir quality and to target the Sergi Formation further east from the bounding fault. We expect to spud the 182-C2 well later in August.
