Global Energy Development testing production at Colombia play

19th May 2014

Global Energy Development, a Latin America-focussed petroleum exploration, development and production company, has announced that rig mobilisation has commenced to the Catalina-1 well in the Bolivar block located in Colombia

Global Energy Development prepares to test production at Colombia play
After all surface equipment is installed and pressure tested, stimulation of the Simiti will then proceed with initial testing results expected in July

The workover rig is being transferred from the central Magdalena Valley area and the rigging up of all existing equipment is expected to be completed over a seven day period, with key new equipment expected to be ready for shipment from the US to Colombia shortly.

Stephen C. Voss, managing director of global commented: "Following an extensive period of planning and equipment preparation, the company is about to undertake its first stimulation test of one of the five Bolivar block productive horizons that form the basis of our year-end 2013 reserve report.

“The Simiti test is focussed on conventional sandstone sections that are known to be productive producers to the south of our Bolivar Block acreage.  The company is hopeful that with modern stimulation techniques, the flow rates achieved nearby in the same formation can be enhanced in our Catalina-1 well-Simiti Test."

The transferral process involves the removal of existing production equipment from the wellbore and the installation of surface pressure control equipment and production tubing suitable for use in high pressure operating conditions, after which the workover rig will then be demobilised and removed from the location. After all surface equipment is installed and pressure tested, stimulation of the Simiti will then proceed with initial testing results expected in July.
