Ahead of expectation well test results, with additional zones identified
CALGARY, May 18, 2022 – Arrow Exploration Corp. (AIM: AXL; TSXV: AXL) (“Arrow” or the “Company”) is delighted to announce the results of the Rio Cravo Este-2 (“RCE-2”) well testing on the Tapir Block in the Llanos Basin of Colombia.
The RCE-2 well was spud on April 2, 2022. RCE-2 targeted a large, three-way fault bounded structure with multiple high-quality reservoir objectives on the Tapir Block in the Llanos Basin of Colombia. The well was drilled to a total measured depth of 9,600 feet and encountered six hydrocarbon-bearing intervals totalling 90 net feet of oil pay.
Specific production test rates for the isolated zones (shallowest to deepest) include:
· Carbonera C7 and C7 Stringer: tested 2,000 bopd (net 1,000 bopd) peak rate of 28 API crude.
The zone was tested for 19 hours at an average rate of 1,199 bopd (net 600 bopd).
· Gacheta C, C1 and C2: initial testing indicates productive capacity of 300 bopd (net 150 bopd) rate of 27 API crude. The zone was tested for 14 hours at an average rate of 115 bopd (net 58 bopd). Reserves have not been assigned to this zone previously.
· Gacheta D: tested 680 bopd (net 340 bopd) peak rate of 14 API crude.
The zone was tested for 33 hours at an average rate of 362 bopd (net 181 bopd).
Test results are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance or ultimate recovery.
Marshall Abbott, CEO of Arrow commented:
“We’re encouraged by the material results of RCE-2, the second well on the Tapir block. RCE-2 identified new zones for further exploitation with flowing results returning better than expected.”
“We’re currently completing the C7 zone, targeting to be on stream early next week. This effectively doubles Arrow’s production. The Company’s procedures will be to bring RCE-2 on slowly and increase production to best manage the oil reservoir.”
“We are now moving the rig to our next well location, the RCS-1 well, which is expected to spud before the end of May. Arrow’s current production exceeds 1,000 boe/d, producing positive cashflow for the Company during a high commodity price environment. This is an exciting time for Arrow, and we look forward to providing further updates on our progress.”
The RCE-2 well costs came in line with the budget.
Continued strong production rates from existing tied-in wells combined with the encouraging results from new drills in Columbia support the Company’s objective of achieving a production rate of 3,000 boe/d within 18 months of its AIM listing (completed in October 2021).
